FAQ’s

Q. Why ‘INFOSEC MAESTROS’ Awards?

The ‘INFOSEC MAESTROS’ Awards will felicitate organizations (and the people within them) that are using information security technology in innovative ways to secure their business and mission critical information in the most effective manner and deliver business value, by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers.

Information security is vital for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of computer systems, resources, and data; it is important for business continuity, for profits, for the economy and for national security. Yet, though every year we load accolades on business heads for their successes and other side, the country has stayed silent to the monumental contribution of the security professionals.
