“CSC congratulates the winners of these awards, which spotlight those companies that demonstrate industry best practices and achieve business excellence by driving greater value from their technology investments,” said Michael W. Risley, president of the Life and Annuity Division of CSC’s Financial Services Group. “To be singled out as industry leaders by their peers is truly an honor for each of these companies.”
