Honor Roll is a lifetime achievement award recognizing an individual's sustained contributions to the information security community, the advancement of the association and enhancement of the professionalism of the membership. Up to seven (7) recipients may be inducted annually. 

Chapter of the Year recognizes chapters that have done an exceptional job of supporting ISSA’s mission, serving their member communities and advancing the field.  Awards are made in 3 categories:

  • Fewer than 100 members

The Security Professional of the Year Award honors the member who best exemplifies the most outstanding standards and achievement in information security in the preceding year. 

The Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes a member who has made a significant difference to their chapter, the association or the information security community through dedicated and selfless service to ISSA. 

The Organization of the Year Award recognizes candidates with a a sustained, proactive presence that directly contributed to the overall good and professionalism of the association and its membership, providing either services, products and/or direct support that ensures the promotion of the highest ethical standards in addressing information security and its future direction. The association does not intend to limit or restrict nominations to large corporate entities, government agencies, consulting firms, current vendors, or sponsors nor to those individual entities making significant cash contributions to the Association. Instead the Association wishes to recognize those who truly distinguish themselves within the community as a whole and are deserving of this recognition. 

The President's Award for Public Service recognizes an individual's contribution to the information security profession in the area of public service.
