We will be monitoring sponsor attendance so please be aware of how many attendees can go to an event,  If you become a sponsor and you do not attend we do not see that as participating and it could lead to your denial for next year.  We always are booked early, and we have 3 times the requests for participation than we can allow so even if you have sponsored before it does not guarantee your inclusion.

As a note:  Please nominate CISO’s.  Anybody can nominate a CISO even if you are not participating.  The CISO has be in their role for at least a year and continue employment in the role through August of the Program year to be eligible and participate.   We have about a 60% refusal because of  what the responsibilities of being a winner entails so please remember the more CISO’s you nominate the better chances you will see one of your nominees participate.
