How the Global Excellence Awards winners will be determined

These are industry and peer awards. Judges are executives and professionals representing a broad spectrum of industry voices and from around the world. All judges are volunteers who provide their expert inputs and valuable time in scoring each nomination. Judges’ average scores will determine the Info Security PG’s Global Excellence Awards winners. In each category the nomination with the highest cumulative score will win the Gold status followed by Silver and Bronze. You or someone who you know may apply to volunteer as a judge.

Who to nominate?

Answer this question first – What do you and your organization want to be recognized for?

Make a list of all the things that went well within your company in the past 12-18 months. This will help you determine who or what you want to nominate, and in which categories.

Now select one or more category groups. What are Category Groups?

Category groups contain several categories relevant to that group. For example Executive Category Group will contain categories relevant to nominating executives. The Global Excellence Awards has several “Category Groups.”

Each category group has several categories. After you have decided in which Category Groups you would like to participate, now select one or more categories in that Category Group.

Fees and Deadlines

Each category may require an entry fee or may not have a fee for a limited time. There are 4 different deadlines and the fees increase after each deadline. So we recommend submitting as early as possible so that you can avail the discounts on fees.

Who will be your organization’s Primary Contact?
