Joseph J. Wasserman Award
The Joseph J. Wasserman Award is presented by the ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter at its Annual Gala/Wasserman Award Dinner, typically held in NYC during June. This award has been bestowed annually since the Chapter’s inception in 1978, and recognizes Outstanding Achievement and Contribution to the Information Systems Audit, Control, Security, Risk Management, and/or Governance professions (the “Community”).
Each year, all Chapter members are invited to nominate candidates for the Wasserman Award. The nomination must include a short bio of the proposed candidate and specific examples of achievements, contributions, and essential characteristics as outlined below.
The award candidates must have made a significant contribution and be currently active in the Community. Essential characteristics include, but are not limited to honesty, integrity, humility, non-self-promoting, selfless dedication to enriching the Community, and motivation for the best interests of the ISACA membership.
Examples of outstanding achievement and contribution are: working as a team leader across verticals to solve significant persistent issues in audit, control, information security, risk management, and governance; building an audit or cyber security tool or process that addresses a major industry gap; or contributing to innovative research on topics of importance to the Community. The achievements or contributions would be considered gold standards for reference in Community.
The achievements, contributions, and characteristics of each nominated candidate are carefully evaluated by the Chapter’s Wasserman Committee. This Committee is appointed annually by the Chapter Board of Directors, and may include current and former Board Directors, past Chapter presidents, and past Wasserman Award recipients. The Committee conducts a rigorous impartial voting process to identify the best-qualified candidates, who are then recommended to the Chapter Board of Directors. The Board of Directors considers the recommendations of the Wasserman Committee and votes to confirm the recipient of the Wasserman Award.
