James Moore, editor of IFSEC Global, which is run by UBM that owns IFSEC International, explained how the judges reached their decisions this year.
“The process consisted of two stages. First, we invited nominations from the IFSEC Global audience and beyond. Then, a panel of judges, drawn from across the industries assigned points to each nomination based on the persuasiveness of the nomination, their research into the nominee and their own knowledge of the nominee’s contributions to their field. The judges were also permitted to submit a limited number of nominations themselves, which were then scored by the other judges.”
He concluded: “Both the quality and quantity of entries was extremely high this year. It is quite clear the passion and commitment so many of the professionals involved in security and fire safety hold for their respective sectors.”
