Worcester, United Kingdom, Monday 9 June 2019: The UK Cyber Security Association is proud and honoured to announce that their CEO & Founder Lisa Ventura won 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 4th June 2019 at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London.
The “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security” award category is a new category for SC Awards Europe and Lisa was proud to stand alongside fellow cyber security industry professionals who were also 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 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 in the “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security” category 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 this award for her work in the industry.
Lisa Ventura, CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association, said: “To be selected as the winner of the “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security” category in this year’s SC Awards Europe is a huge honour. I entered the cyber security industry when it was in its infancy in 2009 and over the year’s 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.”
