“Security people are often lost in the shadows of the business, chasing the shadows that wish to harm their companies. The ISE® Program Series allows us to recognize our peers for their hard work and great ideas. We learn best if we learn together; we protect our companies best if we share the best ideas,” said John South, CSO, Heartland Payment Systems and 2011 ISE® Central Executive Category Award winner.
