Lisa Ventura is proud and delighted to announce that she has been named a finalist in the “Security Leader/Mentor” category in this year’s Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards.

The winners of this prestigious set of awards will be announced on Wednesday 2 October 2019 at a special ceremony and networking event at the St Bart’s Brewery66 West Smithfield, London, EC1A 9DY.

The Security Serious Awards exist to recognise individuals and teams that deserves recognition for going over and above the call of duty when it comes to protecting their organisations from cyber threats? Maybe they have saved the day from a cyber attack or malware infection or rescued the organisation from ransomware? Did they implement a cyber risk awareness campaign that made a difference to the office culture when it comes to phishing; or are they simply a great advocate when it comes to security best practices?

The organisers of the Security Serious Awards believe it’s high time these unsung heroes get some credit! The fourth annual Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards will be given to individuals or teams that have consistently demonstrated their dedication to IT security, often saving the bacon for the organisations that they work for.
