EC-Council felt inclined to include a nod to the executives at this years Hacker Halted as a way of bringing the front-line defenders of security together with the executives who are making security a priority in the boardroom. Eric Lopez, Director of Conferences & Events for EC-Council put it this way, Its becoming increasingly apparent that the information security industry suffers from a lack of communication. This is not a problem that is shared by criminal hackers Black Hat Hackers share information far more freely than the White Hat Security side does. The CISO Forum is EC-Council trying to bridge that communication gap, not just between peers in the industry, but between executives and analysts, CISOs and network administrators.

Professionals are encouraged to apply as well as to nominate their colleagues, and in the case of the CIO of the year, possibly their managers. To apply, interested professionals should enter their information at the Awards website in order to receive the application form.
