Canadian Security is pleased to announce Suzanna Alsayed is the recipient of the Emerging Leader Award for 2021.

Alsayed is an emergency management and security specialist based in Toronto. In 2020, Alsayed founded Evolutz, an independent brand, design and website development agency with the aim to elevate security industry branding standards and help security companies and professionals get a competitive edge, expand their client reach, and increase revenue. She is also the founder of Hilt International Security, a holistic security firm, with the goal to work with different international platforms, in order to protect people and assets worldwide. “I believe that by showcasing different skills, languages, culture and expertise, the world can come together, one project at a time, one client at a time,” said Alsayed, who is fluent in three languages (French, English and Russian).

Alsayed is a familiar face on social media, and hosts a regular “Social Wednesday” interview show with a diverse group of security professionals. She authored an article for Canadian Security recently on how security professionals can make the most of their social media presence. Among her accomplishments, Alsayed was named a Top Influencer in Security and Fire by IFSEC Global in 2020 and was recognized as “One to Watch” by IFSEC Global in 2019.

Alsayed will receive her award at the Canadian Security Honours virtual event, which will take place Oct. 7 at 1PM EST. You can read more about Alsayed in the fall issue of Canadian Security, available in October.
