The Honorary Council is a member based network of volunteers that are recognized by society as one of the top experts in their respective fields. They are carefully selected from either academia and/or industries that are committed to contributing back to their society. An invitation is extended to these individuals to join the Honorary Council and part of this decision is based on their contribution to the e-business and security community. More importantly, they remain an independent voice of the industry.

Their leadership role is honored and they can proudly declare their membership in the Honorary Council.
