The Certified CISO Awards, which are run by the EC-Council, the world's largest cyber security technical certification body, celebrate executives around the world who are working to improve the information security of their respective organizations. Award finalists are selected and voted on by two committees, the Certified CISO Advisory Board and the CISO Events Board. Voting is anonymous without input from the EC-Council staff.

He continues to strengthen CareerBuilder's global IT and information security vision, policies and programs, which keep CareerBuilder clients and users protected in a safe ecosystem. Over his career, Dupree has been committed to creating and implementing compliant and enterprise-wide systems and networks, developing proprietary technologies to protect data for strong, efficient solutions.

"Being recognized with the Certified CISO Award is an honor, and I feel privileged to be among such talented leaders in the industry," commented Dupree. "This acknowledgment underscores my commitment to making sure that CareerBuilder's stakeholders are protected in a safe ecosystem and to guard against cyber threats. Creating and upholding a multi-layer defense model that combines the power of operations, people and technology has been a top priority, and I look forward to continuing to uphold and build upon our system to maintain our strong position."
