In-Person Event: Infosecurity Europe – 5 and 6 June 2024

In-Person Event: Infosecurity Europe – 5 and 6 June 2024

On 5 and 6 June 2024 I will be at Infosecurity Europe at ExCeL in London.

Cybersecurity threats are in the limelight like never before. That’s why we’re dedicated to bringing together the community – not simply the tech. Joining up people with the ideas, skills and resilience to protect our shared future.

By working in unison, we can keep our world safe and help unlock the true potential technology promises.

Infosecurity Europe is one of the leading gatherings of the information security industry in Europe. Each year, we bring the community together to share innovation, learn from each other, test and benchmark solutions, build relationships, drive new business and connect with colleagues.

The leading suppliers choose Infosecurity Europe as an opportunity to launch new technologies, products and services. It’s a vital resource for senior buyers to make key investment and information assurance decisions, and stakeholders at all levels come for the insight necessary to stay ahead in cybersecurity’s rapidly evolving landscape.

To arrange to meet me there email me via enquiries@lisaventura.co.uk.

In-Person Event: National Cyber Security Show – 30 April and 1 May 2024

In-Person Event: National Cyber Security Show – 30 April and 1 May 2024

On Tuesday 30 April and Wednesday 1 May I’ll be attending the National Cyber Security Show at the NEC in Birmingham.

In a digital age where one small business in the UK falls victim to cyberattacks every 19 seconds (source: Hiscox), safeguarding your business against cyber threats has never been more critical. The National Cyber Security Show is your gateway to a deeper understanding of the current and impending cyber threats. This event at the NEC in Birmingham will be where attendees discover and acquire cutting-edge products and software solutions that will fortify businesses against cyber risks, and have a chance to connect with industry-leading experts, learning directly from their invaluable insights.

On Wednesday 1 May 2024 I will be hosting #InfosecLunchHourLive at a nearby venue (to be announced), so if you would like to attend drop me a message and let me know so I can add you to the guest list.

To book a time to meet with me there please email me via enquiries@lisaventura.co.uk.

In-Person Event: Cyber OSPAs – 23 April 2024 in Central London

In-Person Event: Cyber OSPAs – 23 April 2024 in Central London

On the night of Tuesday 23 April 2024 I’ll be attending the Cyber OSPA awards, which I am honoured to be a judge for.

The overall aim of the Cyber OSPAs is to recognise and highlight outstanding performance by companies, people, products and initiatives across the cyber security sector globally. However, there is an important additional feature of the Cyber OSPAs in that they have been designed to be ethical, and based on values of being independent, credible, transparent and respectable. For example, the organisers do not appoint the judges, they are nominated by our supporting associations; all the judges agree to mark to an ethics policy; the judges mark independently against published criteria; and they have an ethical sponsorship policy.

To book a time to meet with me there please email me via enquiries@lisaventura.co.uk.

Awarded an MBE in June 2023 for Services to Cyber Security and Diversity and Inclusion

Awarded an MBE in June 2023 for Services to Cyber Security and Diversity and Inclusion

Last year on Monday 15 May I received a letter out of the blue that was marked “On His Majesty’s Service”. At first I thought what on earth is this, then when I opened it and saw the contents I had the shock of my life.

I had been awarded an MBE in King Charles III’s first birthday honours list for services to cyber security and diversity and inclusion 😁😁🎊🎊

 

Never in my wildest dreams could I ever have imagined something like this happening to me, it was a dream come true and my imposter syndrome went through the roof! Then on Tuesday 19 December last year I got to go to Windsor Castle to be presented with my MBE by the King himself. It was a day I will never forget and the experience was so surreal, especially when I talked to King Charles about cyber crime, hacking and artificial intelligence, all of which he said to me he is “frightfully concerned” about. I have no idea who nominated me or who put me forward for an MBE, but to whoever you are, if you are reading this I’m sending you a massive massive thank you 🥰🥰
 
I also send my congratulations to everyone else included on King Charles III’s first birthday honours list, especially my fellow cyber security colleagues and particularly Dr Jessica Barker who was also awarded an MBE.

I will keep fighting the good fight against cyber criminals and fighting for true equity in all areas of life 💪💪

My Frankie, my son in heaven….this is for you 🎊🎊 xx

Nominated for a Women’s Society of Cyber Jutsu Award

Nominated for a Women’s Society of Cyber Jutsu Award

I was absolutely floored to get an email from the Women’s Society of Cyber Jutsu  in the States saying I’ve been nominted for an award in their “Cyber Mentor” category! I have no idea who nominated me, but I want to send a HUGE thank you to whoever it was.

The awards will take place alongside #CyberjutsuCon 4.0 on June 24th where you can get a day full of hands-on training, panels and discussions around cyber and careers. This will be followed by a networking reception and the awards ceremony.

Good luck to all those nominated and although I can’t be there in person, I hope to be able to join virtually.
