The inaugural UK CSO30 recognises 30 security executives who have demonstrated outstanding thought leadership and business value. 

This year’s winners have demonstrated risk and security excellence in helping guide their organisations through the challenges of COVID19, worked to secure digital transformation initiatives, strengthen security awareness and education efforts, utilize new security technologies, engage with the wider security community to share learnings, and much more.

As part of the awards, honorees will share their views and stories during the CSO 30 2020 Conference on the 4th and 5th November 2020. Day 1 of the virtual event is reserved for honorees, while Day 2 is open to the wider security community.
