has been granted a 2019 CSO50 award from IDG Communications’ CSO. The Annual CSO50 Awards recognize organizations for driving innovation in the security field and implementing world-class security strategies and practices.
Lexmark was given this accolade for its Privacy@Lexmark program, which fosters continuous improvement in the treatment of personal data entrusted to Lexmark, through process improvement, employee awareness and culture change.
“Protecting the privacy of our customer, partner and employee data has always been a priority for Lexmark,” said Brad Clay, Lexmark senior vice president, CIO and chief compliance officer. “The Privacy@Lexmark program embodies this priority by structuring our efforts into a best-in-class privacy initiative that looks at privacy holistically – from product and solution design, to our interaction with customers and employees.”
“Amid the seemingly constant stream of news-making security breaches, vulnerabilities introduced by new technologies and increased attention from company boards, today’s security leaders have their plates more than full,” said Amy Bennett, executive editor of CSO. “They and their teams are charged not only with protecting their organization’s critical systems and sensitive data, but with driving business results. Our annual CSO50 awards shine a light on projects that enhance an organization’s security posture and also deliver measurable ROI. We are pleased to give them the recognition they deserve.”
