Nominations Accepted through June 21
ATLANTA – April 1, 2013 – T.E.N., Inc. announced today that it would be accepting nominations for the first ever Information Security Executive® Canada Awards now through Friday, June 21, 2013. This is the first time the prestigious awards program will accept nominations from Canada on a regional basis; however, companies based in the country have been eligible for the ISE® North America Awards for many years.
Awards include the Information Security Executive® of the Year and ISE® People’s Choice awards, which recognize executives who have made a positive impact on their organizations through risk management, data-asset protection, regulatory compliance, privacy and information security; and the ISE® Project of the Year, which recognizes a project completed during the previous 12-18 months that has had a significant impact on an organization’s risk management or information security posture.
Eligible nominees meet all appropriate criteria and are based anywhere in Canada. Executives or project teams can be self-nominated or submitted for nomination by supervisors, employees, peers, or technology partners. All nominations are sent to T.E.N.’s distinguished panel of ISE® judges for review and scoring.

We look forward to shining a spotlight on Canada’s most innovative projects and dedicated executives who are breaking new ground in the security and risk management industries,” said Marci McCarthy, CEO & President of T.E.N.
All nominees will be recognized at the ISE® Canada Executive Forum and Awards on Sept. 19, 2013 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto in Toronto, Ontario.
