Lisa Ventura is extremely humbled, proud and honoured to announce that she is the winner of the “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security” category in this year’s SC Awards Europe, organised and run by SC Media. The glittering awards ceremony took place on Tuesday 4 June 2019 at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London.

The “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security” award category is new to SC Awards Europe and Lisa was proud to stand alongside the following other cyber security industry professionals who were chosen for their commitment and contribution to the industry:

Dr Kevin Jones – Airbus
Ian Glover – CREST
Rodney Joffe – Neustar
Stu Hirst – Photobox
Martin Smith – The Security Company (International)

I took home this prestigious award for my pioneering work as CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association and my contribution to the cyber security industry as a writer/blogger and thought leader.

With cyber security being a mainstream concern today for everyone, the SC Awards Europe were set up to honour those who are pioneers in the industry and to showcase the products or services that should be focused on to help prevent cyber-attacks. The independent judges of the SC Awards Europe help this process by indicating which companies, products and service offerings stand out from the crowd.

Each entrant this year was considered by the judges against a range of criteria. Every finalist demonstrated to the judges that they are top of the game in cyber security and can defeat our adversaries. For that alone Lisa is humbled to win the “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security” category.
