When I think about industry awards, I think ISE®. In my opinion, ISE® Awards are the most highly regarded in the field of information security.  I was fortunate to win the 2012 ISE® Northeast People’s Choice Award and be named the ISE® Northeast and ISE® North America Commercial Executive of the Year for 2012, and am excited to also have the trendsetting accomplishments of the ADP Global Security Organization acknowledged within the industry.

It is a privilege to have the ADP security team’s work recognized by industry peers as well.  ADP’s Trusted Platform Security Initiative was awarded with the 2012 ISE® North America Project of the Year Award in the Commercial Project category. This was exciting not just for the team and the broader security organization, but for ADP as a whole.

The ADP Global Security Organization was established just two short years prior to receiving the recognition. It took a great deal of focus and commitment for them to get organized, establish their programs, and execute in such a way to achieve industry excellence. The team was able to demonstrate a strong shareholder return coupled with implementing security, risk and privacy programs that lead the industry in innovation and thinking.  This industry affirmation was welcomed and appreciated.

The entire T.E.N. ISE® experience was valuable. The daily Executive Forums and interactive Executive Roundtable discussions provided an ideal setting to engage in lively conversations where all attendees benefited from interesting ideas. You always come away thinking about things a little bit differently. The evening award ceremony is an exceptional multi-media production, and a wonderful way to recognize individual accomplishments as well as celebrate the industry as a whole.

The most valuable part of the T.E.N. experience was meeting and building relationships with colleagues across the industry, sharing ideas and having the opportunity to learn.  Not only has ADP expanded our networks, but we’ve been able to attract top-notch talent as a result of the recognition we have received.

The ISE® Award is more than just an award. It’s the relationships that you build and the network that you continue to grow. It’s about helping practitioners who want to be leaders. It’s about what you are doing to protect your organization. Ultimately, it’s the excitement you create within your team when they get the recognition they deserve. Have you and your team accomplished great things within your organization? I recommend submitting your nominations and discovering the power of the ISE® Awards.
