Black Knight Receives 2019 CSO50 Award for Security Management Excellence

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Dec. 10, 2018 – Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE:BKI), a leading provider of integrated software, data and analytics to the mortgage and real estate industries, was named a 2019 CSO50 award winner by IDG’s CSO. This honor is awarded to select companies for their efforts in developing and implementing world-class security strategies that drive business value and demonstrate significant thought leadership. The CSO50 award winners are selected by a panel of judges that includes security leaders, industry experts and academics.

“Black Knight is proud to be recognized by IDG for our commitment to security innovation,” said Black Knight Chief Risk Officer Peter Hill. “We remain focused on developing cutting-edge business practices that help Black Knight provide the industry-leading risk management services on which we’ve built our reputation, for both our employees and our clients.”

Black Knight was recognized for its innovative internal security initiative that identified and helped validate enterprisewide security compliance across tens of thousands of company service accounts. As part of this program and the company’s commitment to maintaining the highest level of security, Black Knight also developed an in-house solution that automatically adapts security reporting and governance of system accounts to new and retiring applications and potential future organization structural changes.

“This year’s CSO50 award winners raise the bar on security innovation,” said Amy Bennett, executive editor, CSO. “While delivering business value and demonstrating thought leadership are the metrics on which they are measured, the greater value is in the peer-to-peer sharing of ideas across a range of industries, across company sizes, for-profit and not-for-profit, public and private. The magic really happens on the stage at the CSO50 conference when these projects are brought to life in presentations and panel discussions. It is an honor to give them the recognition they deserve.”

Black Knight will accept its award at the CSO50 Conference + Awards held April 8-10, 2019, at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz.
