2023 Award Winners Revealed During Member Meeting & Celebration Dinner at Annual Cyber Intelligence Summit

We are proud to announce the 2023 award winners including the CISO of the Year, Practitioner of the Year, and Team of the Year.

On October 3, the RH-ISAC recognized the 2023 award winners at the Member Meeting & Celebration Dinner, held in conjunction with the Annual Cyber Intelligence Summit. Each year we honor those member organizations and individuals who went the extra mile to further the RH-ISAC community through their sharing endeavors. Awards are distinguished by two different groups; the Peer Choice and RH-ISAC Awards and separately, the Sharing and Collaboration Challenge. Among the awards presented during the celebration were CISO of the Year, Practitioner of the Year, and Associate Member of the Year. This year proved to be especially noteworthy as several new awards were introduced, such as the Working Group Warrior and Community Development. In total, a record number of 37 awards were presented during the Member Meeting & Celebration Dinner. We are proud to recognize the following companies and individuals:
