The ISE® West Executive Forum and Awards 2016 were held on July 21, 2016 in San Francisco. Pritesh Parekh, VP CSO Zuora, was one of the finalists for the Executive of the Year Award. He was in good company along with other finalists: Jason Lish from Charles Schwab, Darren Challey from Expedia, and Saikat Maiti from Personal Capital.
The ISE® West Executive Award recognizes information security executives and their teams who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in risk management, data asset protection, regulatory compliance, privacy, and network security.
Although the award ultimately went to Jason Lish, it was a great honor for Pritesh to be recognized alongside this group of top security executives.
Said Pritesh, “At Zuora, earning our customers’ trust and protecting their data are top priorities. We are always pushing ourselves to exceed industry standard best practices, and will continue to invest in our security program.”
