Eskenzi PR is known for its ‘must attend’ networking events which go to the heart of the cybersecurity community.

Security Serious Week

As part of European Cyber Security Awareness Month in October, we run a week-long campaign of events and other activity to raise awareness and encourage discussions on the pertinent cybersecurity issues of the day. The activities we host differ year-on-year. One year, we organised a campaign about misinformation, inviting experts to host webinars, stand-up comedy clips, share relevant white papers and more, on the subject. Another year, we helped KnowBe4 and OneLogin set an Official Guinness World Record for the Most Views of a Cyber Security Lesson Video on YouTube in 24 hours! In 2022, we launched KnowBe4’s Video Challenge – a competition where students of all disciplines are invited to work together in teams of no more than 4 to produce a security awareness video and win up to £10,000 in cash prizes.

Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards

Our mission is to educate the public, while doing so in a fun-filled way. The one constant event we host as part of this initiative is our annual awards ceremony, the ‘Unsung Heroes Award’, which celebrates those working hard behind the scenes to keep us safe.

The awards are a chance for the people, not products, on the front lines – whether it’s teaching others, working with law enforcement or battling cyber threats in organisations – to come together and receive the recognition they deserve. We would love your help in supporting the awards and nominating worthy individuals!

A glance at Security Serious


There are many other ‘Security Awards’ evenings in London, most of which take themselves far too seriously. Security Serious (ironically) gets the mix right – recognising those who make a valuable contribution to our work, our professional community and our society but, for a variety of reasons, don’t seem to get selected for other awards.

Not only was it a great honour to be invited to Judge the Unsung Heroes Awards for Eskenzi this year, but it was also purely awesome to see so many truly unsung heroes receive their well-deserved accolades at the ceremony. From engineers to theatre companies, I can’t think of another infosec event that truly celebrates the incredible diversity of Cyber talent in our professional community. I’d hate to be working at Eskenzi right now. They have to top it all next year!!!!!

I think it’s really important to support these kinds of efforts. Unsung Heroes Awards recognizes the real people in information security, not just the ones you see in the magazines every single time. Not just the ones who get put on the news whenever there’s an incident, but the ones who maybe don’t have the time to do that because they are soldiering away in the background to make the world a safer place. And that’s why your awards have credibility.

Great venue and event management. The awards were a great event to experience.

The event was a great networking opportunity and the awards are a superb way of recognising the hard work that those on the ground are doing in this industry. It is important to have these kinds of awards to inspire others and to continue working towards our wider goal of a bigger, more diverse cyber industry.

Stuart CoulsonBusiness Engagement Manager for Cyber Security Challenge UK

It’s great to see the industry come together in a social and friendly environment, and just have some FUN!

Dan RaywoodInfosecurity Magazine

The event was well-attended, with winners receiving trophies in addition to superhero capes and masks...Adding much-needed levity to such events that can often end up taking themselves a bit too seriously (no pun intended).
