About the CSO50 Awards

Presented at the CSO50 Conference + Awards event, the 7th annual CSO50 Awards, taking place April 8 – 10, 2019 at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, will recognize security projects and initiatives that demonstrate outstanding business value and thought leadership. Unlike awards programs that recognize individuals, the CSO50 Awards honor specific organizations and a particular project/initiative within each organization.


Who may nominate an organization or project for the CSO50?

We welcome award nominations from:

  • Companies/organizations nominating themselves
  • Public relations professionals representing a nominated organization, and
  • Solution providers/partners that nominate a customer.


There are four parts to the questionnaire you will be completing:

  • About the company/organization you are nominating
  • About the project you are nominating
  • About the project's champion
  • Availability for awards ceremony participation and possible conference presentation


You may save and return to this form to complete it. Your nomination needs to be submitted by the deadline of August 1, 2018. Upon completing all fields, you must click “Submit” in order for your nomination to be received.


Please click here for a PDF version of the nomination form for your review.
