2020 was a transformational time. Seemingly overnight, COVID-1 9 reshaped our point of view on operate, home lifetime, and safety. Setting up home offices and powering through online presents in our pajama bottoms( with cameos by pets and children ), our industry rose to the challenge. All that challenging operate kept firstline laborers, students, medical professionals, and the rest of us connected and secure through a dark time. Now as we approach a full time, we will again celebrate our colleagues in security, compliance, and identity at the second annual Microsoft Security 20/20 awards ceremony on May 12, 2021.
“The past 12 months have reshaped our industry. We’ve all been pushed to reach new heights–creating integrated security, compliance, and identity solutions that work across platforms and cloud environments. We want to recognize the partners who helped get us there by creating their own game-changing Microsoft-based solutions and services.” — Vasu Jakkal, CVP Microsoft Security, Compliance& Identity
According to the American Optometric Association: “2 0/20 vision does not necessarily mean you have perfect vision, it simply indicates the sharpness or lucidity of vision at a distance.” Last year’s theme of “Vision and Clarity” focused on shaping Microsoft’s vision for the security ecosystem alongside our partners, but the past year has inspired all of us to have a new view. The last 12 months have, in a way, forced us all to step back and reexamine the solutions we offer. Our industry burned the midnight oil, retooling products to better support a new remote workplace. The Microsoft Security 20/20 awards ceremony will acknowledge our new reality and shifted standpoint with the theme of “Perspective–Through the looking glass.”
Unlike the online sessions we all know too well, this awards show will be an immersive, digital experience, ripe with dazzling visuals and soundscapes. We’re going all-in to celebrate our finalists and winners across 18 award categories honoring very good in security rights, conformity, and identity ecosystem. We promise to engage all five of your senses to get you out of that office chair( figuratively, anyway ), traveling through lush forests, bright meadows, and along a breezy beach.
Everyone is welcome. In this short-but-sweet accolades present, we’ll skip the speeches and doubled down on creativity and fun. You’re invited to watch the 90 -minute event and engage with us on social media. Feel free to invite your spouse, coat newborn, or favorite houseplant. Just don’t forget to snap a selfie and share it with the hashtag: #MSFTSecurity2020.
