Security Director of the Year open for nominations
Canadian Security magazine's annual award recognizing the Security Director of the Year is now open for nominations. This recognition program, sponsored by Anixter Canada, has run continously since 2006. The award recipient will be selected by Canadian Security magazine's Editorial Advisory Board who will assess candidates based on a number of criteria including leadership, project management and mentoring.
Over the years, Canadian Security has recognized security leaders who are employed in various sectors including banking, retail, health care and government. Last year’s winner was James Armstrong, vice-president, security, Ottawa Interational Airport. Armstrong has led a number of major security initiatives for the airport including comprehensive emergency management exercises, an insider threat program, and extensive Canada 150 preparations.

The deadline for this year’s nominations is July 27, 2018. If you know of a candidate who is making a difference in their organization, community and amongst their peers, please let us know. The winner will be recognized in Canadian Security magazine and at an awards presentation held in Toronto in October.
