“I’m a Technical Director at NCC Group and have been in the industry for more than 18 years. I relish the challenge in this dynamic field where we defenders of information assets have to be right all the time, but attackers have to be right only once. Judging the Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards gives me confidence about our industry’s ability to meet future challenges. The breadth of talent and depth of innovation is very encouraging, and I had a tough time ranking the nominations from the best to the rest. Onward, fellow cyber warriors!”
