European Cyber Security Awareness Month (or October for the laypersons) is nearly upon us again! And that means Security Serious Week in the UK to kick it all off. This week, we’ve been busy judging the second annual Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards with Adrian Davis from ISC² and Dominic Trott from IDC. We met in St Bart’s Brewery where the awards event will take place on the 3rd October.
The full list of finalists can be found on the website: www.securityserious.com/unsung-heroes-awards/
As you might imagine, picking through all these amazing folks dedicated to their professions and making the UK a safer place to do business was no easy feat! We can’t wait for the Awards ceremony and to recognise all of these superb individuals and teams.
Bringing back the Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards isn’t all we’ve been up to. This year, we’ve taken the Security Serious Summit virtual – and the best part is: it’s all completely free!
The Security Serious Summit is about the security industry giving back to enterprise and passing some wisdom on along the way. In that vein, we will be hosting five fantastic webinars with some of the industry’s best and brightest minds from Computer Weekly’s Warwick Ashford and CREST’s Ian Glover to Emma Jones from the National Autistic Society and Pete Warren from Future Intelligence and many, many more. They will tackle the overarching theme for the week: “Building Awareness and Bridging the Cyber-Skills Gap through Creativity and Diversity”.
The full line up from setting the scene for the skills gap, incentives that make the UK an ideal cybersecurity hub, artificial intelligence, creative employment and neuro diversity, can be found here:
While you’re there, make sure you register for a webinar (or two or three or four or five…)
Together, let’s all make this Security Serious Week the best one yet!
