Lisa Ventura Named Finalist in Inteligenca’s Cyber Security Women of the Year Awards

Lisa Ventura is delighted to announce that she is a finalist in the Cyber Security Women of the Year Awards organised by Inteligenca in the “Cyber Security Supporter of Women” category. The winners will be announced at a prestigious ceremony on Monday 5 August 2019 at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, USA.

Inteligenca created the awards out of the importance for women in cyber security to be recognized as much as it’s important for women to develop a community of peers who share common experiences. A new generation of cyber defenders needs to have strong role models to follow, and Ineligenca believes that those who already contribute to the greater good of us all should be must elevated and highlighted for their achievements.

Inteligenca wanted to create an environment where they salute the people who fight back and the women who’ve jumped into the fight to protect organizations and society. They want to show their appreciation for those people doing good things in the security space, which is the ethos behind the awards.

Lisa Ventura Nominated for CRN Women in Channel Awards

Lisa Ventura Nominated for CRN Women in Channel Awards

Lisa Ventura is delighted to announce that she has been nominated in CRN’s Women in Channel Awards for 2019 in their “Marketing Employee of the Year” category.

The CRN Women in Channel awards were set up to showcase the extraordinary and strong women who are making waves in the channel today.  It’s no secret that the technology industry suffers a diversity problem. Walk into any mainstream tech event and you could probably count the number of women on your hand. The same goes for boardrooms, with many companies still struggling to promote women into senior roles.

CRN feels that shouting about the accomplishments of women in the channel – not because they are women, but because their accomplishments are worth shouting about – can play an important role in tackling the issue. Hence the awards were created.
