I’m extremely proud, humbled and honoured to be selected as CISO Magazine’s “Infosec Superwoman of the Year”, such a wonderful and lovely surprise for December, and especially after how hard and horrible 2020 has been so far.

Winning this means the absolute world to me, and I hope to engage with CISO Magazine more in 2021 by way of contributing articles and taking part in their webinars/events and by writing articles for the magazine and their website.

Thank you all so much for voting for me and supporting me, you’ve no idea how much it means. I will continue to fight the good fight against cyber criminals and educating businesses and the general public about the growing cyber threat through my work in 2021 and beyond.
