"It is a true honor and privilege to be recognized by the judges and the panel comprised of cybersecurity titans and leaders as the 2017 ISE® West Executive of the Year. The ISE® Program and ISE® Private Welcome Dinner were extremely well organized and comprised of case studies and presentations allowing my fellow Information Security Executives® and I to gain the insights needed to stay one step ahead of malicious hackers and attackers. The ISE® Awards Gala had a true “Oscars style” feel to it, recognizing Information Security professionals and projects for their accomplishments. I eagerly look forward to the next ISE® Program from Marci and the amazing team over at T.E.N.," said Ajit Gaddam, Sr. Director / Chief Security Architect for VISA and ISE® West Executive of the Year Award Winner 2017.

The ISE® Programs are a great venue for us to show up, network and build our relationships. They are hugely valuable. We commit to spend time with the vendors that are on hand. That and RSA® are the biggest ways I learn about vendors,” said Jeff Trudeau, Chief Information Security Officer for Sutter Health and ISE® North America Health Care Executive Award Winner 2013.
