The annual awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of businesses, individuals and charities within the cyber security industry, something that is especially important during a period of rising online risk.
Stew, our Associate Director for Cyber said: “To be shortlisted amongst some of the biggest and best companies in the UK was an honour in itself, but to win was just fantastic.
“We work hard to make sure our clients are safe and secure online with everything from cyber strategy and accreditations, to training and proactive monitoring, so making sure we’re staying on top of the ever-evolving risks and putting measures in place to prevent security incidents is vital.
“Aligning ourselves with other industry experts such as the Business Resilience Centres throughout the UK, and supporting the national cyber protect network through the Metropolitan Police means we’re able to be part of the wider cyber security conversation and support organisations to proactively strengthen their cyber posture.”
Also at the event was Head of Cyber Consulting, Kieran Fowler, who attributes the win to the array of opportunities for support offered by the business. He said: “Cyber crime is on the rise and we’re on a mission to reduce its impact on the economy.
“We now offer a 24/7 Security Operations Centre for all our clients to make sure they are protected around the clock, but also work with businesses on strategies, accreditations and even ethical hacking to truly understand the measures needed.”
Head of Cyber Assurance, Craig Archdeacon is the creator of one of our more innovative methods to teach the world about cyber security and business resilience, through the newly launched resilience board game, Udder Disaster.
Craig said: “It takes real business scenarios and applies them to the operation of a dairy farm, challenging players to solve the issues to make the business successful.
“The cyber threat landscape is very real and very serious, but it shouldn’t be feared. We created the game to help business leaders step out of their every day and consider risks out of the context of their own business.
“By having fun, it helps to remove the serious nature but still understand the challenges that can then be applied back to their own industry, team and business.”
