Second Annual Information Sharing Hall of Fame Awards Nominations Now Open

The Information Sharing and Analysis Organization Standards Organization (ISAO SO) is now accepting nominations for the Second Annual Information Sharing Hall of Fame Awards. These awards will be presented as part of the International Information Sharing Conference on Sept. 11-12, 2018, in Tysons Corner, Virginia.

The Information Sharing Hall of Fame Awards recognize those individuals and organizations who have demonstrated the highest standards of professional competence and selflessness, and have contributed significantly to the promotion of the information sharing ecosystem.

The ISAO SO will be accepting nominations for two award categories in 2018:

  • Information Sharing Hall of Fame 2018 Inductee—Individual
    This individual should be a notable leader and visionary based upon their leadership in advancing, growing and shaping the information sharing community. Individuals should have demonstrated success in leading information sharing organizations, initiatives or academic research.
  • Information Sharing Hall of Fame 2018 Inductee—Organization
    This award honors an organization for their commitment to advancing information sharing as a vital aspect of cybersecurity defense plans. This award is open to any organization and is not limited to information sharing organizations. Nominees will be evaluated based upon the past year’s accomplishments and contributions to the cybersecurity information sharing ecosystem at large.

A nominee’s accomplishments and length of service are considered in the selection process to the Hall of Fame. An individual may be recognized multiple times for separate periods of service and/or accomplishments but may only receive the physical award once, presented at the annual conference.

The Second Annual International Information Sharing Conference theme is “Improving Information Sharing”. Conference registration opens in March 2018 on the IISC 2018 registration page.
