CSO is the premier content and community resource for security decision-makers leading business risk management efforts within their organizations. Launched in 2013, the CSO50 Awards recognizes 50 organizations for security initiatives that demonstrate outstanding business value and thought leadership. Awards are based on performance against a uniform set of criteria by a panel that includes security leaders, industry experts, and academics.

“Today, organizations are collecting more and more data to drive business decisions. Along with collecting all that data comes a very real responsibility to protect the privacy of individuals, and to ensure only the right people can access the data” said Paul Terry, CEO of PHEMI. “We are honored to receive a CSO50 Award for our Zero Trust Data approach. We feel it recognizes how Zero Trust Data empowers organizations to gain real value from their data with assured privacy protection and data governance.”

Zero Trust Data underpins PHEMI’s strategy to help organizations in healthcare, life sciences, finance, the public sector, and other industries address the tension between sharing data and meeting compliance and governance requirements. PHEMI delivers the enterprise-grade features that combine the scale and performance of big data with features that support data security and data management, helping data-driven companies unlock and share data without compromising privacy.

“Security professionals know that securing an organization is about much more than mere defense today, it’s also about enabling business and driving ROI,” said Joan Goodchild, Editor in Chief of CSO. “Our annual CSO50 awards recognize the innovation, creativity, and business acumen that goes into creating outstanding security projects. We congratulate each of our winners for their accomplishments in creating projects that not only demonstrate state-of-the-art security, but exemplary value as well.”

PHEMI will accept the award at the CSO50 Conference + Awards held on April 18-20 2016, at the Wigwam Resort, Litchfield Park, Arizona, where the company will also present its Zero Trust Data initiative.
