Security Management, the monthly publication of ASIS International, received one of two Honorable Mentions awarded in the 2010 Azbee Awards of Excellence Magazine of the Year competition sponsored by the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) for larger business magazines (revenues of $2 million or more). Security Management editors received an additional six awards for individual editorial contributions within the Central-Southeast Region.
ASBPE’s Azbee Awards of Excellence Magazine of the Year program is one of the most competitive there is for business-to-business, trade, association, and professional publications. The competition is open to all U.S.-based publications. A panel of judges selects 10 finalists in categories for publications with revenues of $2 million or more, and of less than $2 million, and then selects a winner in each division. Judges from the professional B2B magazine-editing world evaluated three consecutive issues from each entrant, examining their writing, reporting, and editing; their usefulness to and interactivity with readers; editorial organization; layout and design.
Computerworld received the top award in the National Magazine of the Year category, $2 million or more division, and Bloomberg Businessweek took a second Honorable Mention. Other magazines nominees competing in the same category include CFO, HR Magazine, and Associations Now. In previous years, Security Management was named one of the ten finalists.

It is rewarding to see Security Management receive such well-deserved recognition and acclaim beyond the industry,” stated Joseph R. “Bob” Granger, CPP, president, ASIS International. “ASIS is proud and fortunate to have such an exceptionally talented team of individuals dedicated to the production of Security Management.
