Information Security Executive of the Year Awards

The ISE® Southeast Executive Forum and Awards 2020 will be held on March 11, 2020 at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Downtown in Atlanta, GA.

New! Our ISE® Southeast Awards Gala will be in a new Ballroom of the Westin Peachtree Plaza starting in 2020 so the entire event is in the same building! Look for more information later in 2019.

The ISE® Southeast Award recognizes the information security executives and their teams who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in risk management, data asset protection, regulatory compliance, privacy, and network security.

The ISE® Southeast Awards are held in conjunction with a one day Executive Forum which includes keynote speakers, interactive roundtables moderated by the CISOs and VPs of participating companies, and hot topic panel discussions. The one day program offers the opportunity to meet with peers and leading IT executives from across the region to discuss and share insights into today's issues and solutions.

Ducking an Identity Crisis with Real-Time Fraud Alerting
Executive Sponsor: Tim Callahan, Senior Vice President, Global Security Officer
Project Team: Matthew Harper (Director, Cyber Crime Prevention), Adam Miller (Senior Consultant, Cyber Crime Prevention), Nic Clark (Cyber Crime Prevention Engineer), Hailey Armstrong (Cyber Crime Prevention Analyst), Veena Harish (Project Manager), Prabhas Singh (Consultant)
Location: Columbus, GA

Criminals are taking advantage of Aflac’s transition from a legacy serving model to a digital-first environment via Account Takeover (ATO) and other techniques. To protect Aflac policyholder data while enabling the digital transformation, Aflac leveraged in-place security technology (Splunk) and real-time channel/servicing data (call center, online, claims and client master) to create a flexible analytics platform that can flag suspicious activity in real time and alert business partners in fraud, claims operations and security to take corrective action. The project delivered real-time visibility across all aspects of Aflac core individual business units and ID validation infrastructure.

Identity Access Portfolio
Executive Sponsor: Shane Callahan, Director of Information Security – BCP\DR
Project Team: Christine Jones (Senior Specialist, Kyle Yoches (Specialist), Chris Eng (Specialist), Jamie Blake (Analyst), Michael Browning (Manager, IAM)
Location: Brentwood, TN

Tractor Supply Company embarked on a journey to revamp its Identity Management program, incorporating Privileged Access Management (PAM), Single Sign-On (SSO), and credential management. In the latter two use cases the company was replacing solutions already in place, and instituting an additional multi-factor authentication solution to limit risk on critical systems. While vendor consolidation was a secondary consideration, the primary consideration was more advanced features and functionality to elevate its security posture and create a better user experience for TSC’s 28,000 employees.
