Welcome to the 2023 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards


Welcome to the 2023 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards – recognizing companies, products and professionals that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. This popular, worldwide awards program is produced by Cybersecurity Insiders in partnership with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, tapping into the vast experience of over 600,000+ cybersecurity professionals to honor and recognize the world’s best cybersecurity products, professionals and organizations.

Winners & finalists will be displayed on the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards site and announced to the 570,000+ member infosec community on LinkedIn and Cybersecurity Insiders. Winners and finalists will also receive an award badge image to display on their website.

WHY ENTER – Participation in the cybersecurity awards program is a great opportunity for your company and products to get recognized for excellence in cybersecurity, and to showcase your unique capabilities and contributions to the cybersecurity industry.

DEADLINES & ENTRY FEES – Our simple flat rate for nominations make the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards the most affordable awards program in the industry, giving smaller organizations and individuals a cost-effective opportunity to participate. That’s because the flat fee is a single charge for up to three nominations. If you wish to add more than three award nominations, you can select the premium sponsorship package which allows you to add up to 10 award nominations, create your own custom award categories, and prominently feature your key nomination and brand on the award website.

Nominations added no later than the extended deadline February 10, 2023 (end of day PST) are charged a one-time, flat processing fee of only $900 which includes up to three (3) award entries across multiple categories (for the same company or client). This represents the most cost-effective award nomination fee  in the industry. For nominees with more than three nominations, we offer a premium sponsorship package.

VOTING – Voting is open throughout the award nomination season and closes February 10, 2023. Award finalists and winners will be announced in late February, 2023.

SELECTION CRITERIA – Award winners and finalists will be selected primarily based on the strength of their nomination. The popular vote is used only as a tie breaker between otherwise equally strong nominations. Please make sure to provide sufficient data to support your nomination in the selected category. For example, if you nominate in the fastest growing company category, make sure to provide growth data to support your nomination. You can also request a new category if your solution does not fit any existing categories.

NEXT STEPS – Please register here to start the nomination process. You can start the nomination process, save your draft nomination, and return later to finish it (just make sure to save your login credentials). If you would like to submit multiple nominations, you can submit them all in one session or separately, at different times (you can use the same user account). Please make sure to sign up for the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards newsletter – simply add your email address to the field in the upper right corner of the site.

PROMOTION – Finally, don’t forget to promote your nomination on social media, including Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook as well as your company blog so that your friends, followers, customers and prospects learn about the award opportunity and vote for you!
