- Substantive and defining leadership in academic, public awareness, legislative or standards efforts
- Corporate leadership that extends beyond the company walls and into the larger identity sphere
- Pioneering biometrics product development, innovation or corporate start-up efforts
- Industry involvement sharing expertise and mentoring peers, thus growing the market
Nominations are open and will be accepted through Oct. 15. Nominees may include those working for biometrics companies, peripheral suppliers, system integrators, academia, government and end user organizations.
The 2016 awards will be presented on Wednesday, Nov. 16 in Manhattan in conjunction with the ISC East event.
