Nominees are required to have demonstrated commitment to ISSA over a minimum of seven years’ membership with at least 10 years in the security field. Recipients should also be recognized for their activity in at least one area of service to the profession: research, teaching, publishing, speaking, directing information security programs, or developing information security tools.
