Lisa Ventura is proud, humbled and honoured to announce that she was named a winner in the Cyber Security Women of the Year Awards organised by Inteligenca for the “Cyber Security Supporter of Women” category. The winners were announced at a prestigious ceremony on Monday 5 August 2019 at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, USA.

This is the third award win that Lisa has had this year, having previously won the “Contribution to Cyber Security” category in the SC Awards Europe 2019 and the “Cyber Security Personality of the Year” category for the UK’s Cyber Security Awards.

Lisa took home this prestigious award for her pioneering work in supporting women in cyber security as the CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association, as well as her strong contribution to the cyber security industry for women and the cyber skills gap as a writer/blogger and thought leader.

Inteligenca created the Women in Cyber Security awards out of the importance for women in the industry o be recognised 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 would also like to extend her congratulations to all the winners and finalists in this year’s inagural awards.
