I am extremely proud and honoured proud to announce that I am a finalist in the “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security” category in this year’s SC Awards Europe, organised and run by SC Media. The glittering awards ceremony will take 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 I am proud to stand alongside the following other cyber security industry professionals who have also been 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)

With cyber security being a mainstream concern today for everyone, the SC Awards Europe have been 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 is considered by the judges against a range of criteria. Every finalist will have demonstrated to the judges that they are top of the game in cyber security and can defeat our adversaries. For that alone I am humbled to be included as a finalist in the “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security” category.
