Recognising the Top 30 Innovative Cybersecurity Leaders in ASEAN

Horangi is proud to launch the inaugural Security Leaders ASEAN Awards to recognise the top 30 cybersecurity executives whose leadership drive resilience, deliver business value and spur innovation in their organizations.

These awards celebrate the mark of excellence within the Security Leaders ASEAN cybersecurity industry and confer this honour on transformational individuals who demonstrate delivering business value and leadership in markets across ASEAN.

An esteemed panel of judges will select the top 30 cybersecurity executives based on how they have introduced key initiatives over the past year, collaborated and influenced their Management Teams and Boards to enhance resilience within their organizations, and their contributions to the wider cybersecurity community.

Awards Entry Criteria

Horangi and its partners are proud to be honouring the Top 30 Security Leaders ASEAN starting in 2022.

The Security Leaders ASEAN Awards will recognise CISOs at both in-country and regional levels in ASEAN, in cybersecurity across private industries for their contributions and excellence in organizational protection.

The awards are open to the top ASEAN-based cybersecurity leaders in an organization who has overall responsibility and control of the cyber security vision and direction for the company.

The awards will look deeper at how leading individuals and organizations deliver security projects and initiatives which demonstrate outstanding business value and innovation, help overcome rising threat levels across Southeast Asia, tackling ongoing challenges in relation to increasingly sophisticated hackers and cyber talent shortages.

The 2022 Security Leaders ASEAN Awards questionnaire will seek to determine:

  • How security-led initiatives and projects have added value to how an organization manages threats.
  • Examples of collaboration with the wider organization and leadership team in relation to cybersecurity.

Nominations will be confidentially assessed by our panel of judges ranging from security leaders, industry experts, analysts and academics. Submissions are free to enter and can be self-nominated or nominated on behalf of someone else - just click on the button below to get started!
