Each award category required a 650 word essay along with an explanation of why Spirion deserves recognition. A portion of Spirion’s essay from its Data Classification and Governance award, summarized its mission by saying:
“When you collect sensitive, private data, you possess the most invaluable assets of your colleagues, customers and communities. This data inevitably puts your company’s security at risk and has the potential to paralyze performance and cripple efficiency company wide. The real issue isn’t just about avoiding regulatory non-compliance; it’s about preventing a breach of trust granted to you by your colleagues, customers and community. Once breached, trust is nearly impossible to regain — and trust is a key driver of your company’s image and ability to compete successfully.”
More than 35 judges from around the world representing a wide spectrum of industry experts participated in the judging process. Judges are from Microsoft, JPMorgan Chase, Ernst and Young, Amazon, Schlumberger, VMware, Walmart, Cisco, Paypal, and other organizations.
