The inaugural CSO30 ASEAN awards recognises the top 30 senior cybersecurity executives driving business value, demonstrating leadership, and influencing rapid change in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong.The CSO30 ASEAN awards is aligned to IDG\u2019s global awards program and celebrates the leading individuals and organisations delivering security projects and initiatives that demonstrate outstanding business value and leadership.Nominations were judged based on security initiatives introduced over the past two years that have changed the way the business is protected. Under Leadership, nominees were evaluated based on how they collaborated with and influenced their leadership team to improve cybersecurity and resilience within the firm. Judges also assessed their contribution to the wider cybersecurity community beyond their organisations.We received over 70 nominations of cybersecurity leaders from markets like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, and Cambodia. These leaders hold country, regional, and global roles within their respective organisation. Some are also responsible for security portfolios across the group.The winners were announced during the virtual CSO30 ASEAN 2021 Awards ceremony on November 25 2021, where CISOs and technology experts shared their views on a range of topics and themes driving the cybersecurity landscape.Congratulations to the 2021 CSO30 ASEAN winners!CSO30 ASEAN Awards 2021 honourees#1: Steven Sim Kok Leong \u2013 Global CISO,\u00a0PSA International Pte Ltd#2: Maria Carmela T.
