PhishMe is proud to announce our first-ever PhishMe Excellence Awards, taking place at our inaugural phishing defense summit and user conference, PhishMe Submerge, this September.
The PhishMe Excellence Awards showcase the outstanding achievements of security professionals to defend their companies against the damages of phishing. The companies and individuals recognized by the PhishMe Excellence awards are industry leaders, chosen for their innovative, successful programs to combat phishing attacks and protect their enterprise from the risks of malware infiltration and fraud loss.
Awards are distributed for performance excellence in three categories:

- Incident Response Team of the Year: The top incident response team based on either of the following:
- 1) Single Incident: scope of the incident, potential for damage, response strategy and cost/time saving value of the resolution; or
- 2) Overall Process: the incident response team with the best ongoing process, system of detecting and deflecting the incident and minimizing the overall impact of phishing in the organization on an ongoing basis.
- Most Innovative Phishing Defense Program: The most innovative phishing program implementation across an organization which could include contests, gamification, incentives, and other fresh approaches to improve training effectiveness and boost participation throughout the company.
All award submissions will be reviewed by an un-biased, anonymous panel of judges comprised of PhishMe product experts, industry leaders and security professionals.
