The security industry's big night out looms with calls for nominations in this year's iSANZ Awards.

iSANZ's goal is to "inspire, promote and reflect" on New Zealand's information security people and its industry, and to "formally recognise the achievements of outstanding New Zealand InfoSec professionals" and companies.

Now in its fourth year, categories include best start-up, best security awareness campaign, best project and best up-and-coming security star.

iSANZ Chair Kendra Ross says the diversity seen in the Award entries each year show that New Zealand has high achieving and dedicated InfoSec people the equal of anywhere in the world, according to its website.

"There is extraordinary leadership and growth happening in New Zealand information security. We urge businesses, industry and individuals to enter this year's Awards to showcase the depth and breadth of their work, skills and talent," says Kendra.

Past winners include CERT NZ for security project, Aura Information Security (best security company in 2017), and Laura Bell of Safestack for best international superstar.

This year's judges include a who's who of the infosec sector: Russell Craig from Microsoft; Ryan Ko, Head of Cyber Security Lab & Associate Professor, University of Waikato; Peter Gutmann, Computer Scientist and member of the iSANZ Hall of Fame; Adrian van Hest, Partner and National Cyber Practice Lead at PwC; Jo Healey, NZ Global Technology Services Leader at IBM; Catherine Soper, Government Relations Manager at Vodafone NZ; Tom Maasland, Partner at MinterEllisonRuddWatts; Debbie Monahan, Former Domain Name Commissioner, now independent contractor and InternetNZ's Chief Executive, Jordan Carter.
