Worcester, United Kingdom, Monday 18 November 2019: A Worcestershire woman is celebrating a year of cyber security award wins for her pioneering work in the industry.

Lisa Ventura, who is the CEO & Founder of The UK Cyber Security Association, has won a hat trick of awards in 2019 for her work as well as being selected by SC Magazine as one of their Top 50 Women of Influence in Cyber Security in the UK. The awards include SC Awards Europe “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security Award”, Cyber Security Awards UK “Cyber Security Personality of the Year” and Women in Cyber Security USA “Supporter of Women in Cyber Security Award”

Lisa gained these highly prestigious accolades for her work as the CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association and her contribution to the cyber security industry as a writer/blogger and thought leader. She is also currently writing a book entitled “The Rise of the Cyber Women” which is a collection of first-hand accounts from leading women in the cyber security industry with the express aim of encouraging other women to enter the profession.

Lisa Ventura, CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association, said: “To win these industry awards and be selected as one of SC Magazine’s Top 50 Women of Influence in Cyber Security is a huge honour. I entered the cyber security industry in 2009and over the years I’ve seen the industry grow and develop as many look to develop new ways to keep us safe from the growing cyber threat. In my current capacity as CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association I work tirelessly to raise as much awareness as possible as to the importance of cyber security – not just at board level but for all employees of businesses and the general public too. Cyber security really is everyone’s responsibility and the more that can be done to help educate people as to the importance of it, the better equipped the UK will be to combat the growing cyber threat in 2020 and beyond.”
