LAS VEGAS--(Business Wire)--
The Women`s Security Council (WSC), a network of security professionals focused
on promoting the advancement of women in the industry, will again recognize top
female professionals in the physical security industry at the 2013 WSC Women of
the Year awards. 

Awards in a variety of categories will be based on demonstrated leadership in
the security industry and employer companies. The WSC Founding Committee and
select WSC members spearhead the review process, evaluating nominees' efforts to
"give back" to the business community by mentoring or supporting other women in
the security market. 

WSC Women of the Year award recipients will be honored during ISC West 2013 in
Las Vegas. Winners will be formally announced at WSC`s 2013 Awards Reception at
Pinot Brasserie in the Venetian on Tuesday, April 9, from 6-8 p.m. Winners will
also be profiled in a special April 2013 eWSC awards newsletter and announced in
an official WSC press release to be distributed at ISC West. 

This is the second year of the WSC Women of the Year awards. Last year, honorees
came from companies such as Alarm Capital Alliance, Arecont Vision and
ScanSource Security. 

"The security industry includes many women who are demonstrated influencers and
others who are emerging as the industry's future leaders," said Rhianna Daniels,
Managing Director, CompassPR and a WSC Founding Committee member. "The Women of
the Year Awards spotlight the exceptional women in the physical security
industry, which is central to our mission to provide networking and a strong
support system."
