If being involved in the world of cybersecurity wasn’t reward enough, we today learnt that Agenci and our product ‘Cyber Recovery‘, which was developed with our partners Lorega, has been short listed in two categories at the prestigious ‘Cyber Security Awards 2016‘ which take place in London in June.
The Cyber Security Awards has 10 expert judges, who represent a broad spectrum of different backgrounds and organisations with the cyber industry. Their scores and debate ultimately determine the 2016 Cyber Security Awards winners, and the winners will be announced and celebrated during the awards dinner and presentation on June 23rd 2016 at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel. The ceremony will be attended by the finalists, industry leaders, judges and sponsors.
Judge Karla Jobling said “To be nominated as a finalist is a great achievement as the competition this year is tough. As always, the judges are looking to reward high achievers within our industry and are looking for those who demonstrate passion and innovation, within cyber security.”
We have been short listed in both the “Cyber Personality of the Year” for Gary Hibberd, and the “Insurance Product of the Year” for our Cyber Recovery Insurance product.
Gary has already begun writing his speech, and kindly offers a snippet below.
“As Karla has said, to be nominated as a finalist is a great achievement. ‘Personality of the year’ I believe simply means someone who can demonstrate they love what they do, and are free to show it. Whilst it may sound like an individual award, it couldn’t be possible for me to speak at events, schools, parties and bah mitzvah’s without the Agenci team supporting me. So for me, it’s a team effort.
As for the ‘Insurance Product of the Year’, I again feel this is a team effort, but not only the Agenci team but also those in Lorega. We’re all very passionate about this product because it has the SME at the heart of the product. We wanted to create something which the SME could afford, understand and use. So on behalf of Lorega and Agenci, thank you for this nomination…
Now I’d like to thank my mom, dad,… [INSERT LIST OF NAMES HERE]”
Will we win? Who knows (oh yeah..the judges do!). To be honest, we’re happy with the nomination and short listing. It tells us that we must be doing something right. And I guess, if you love what you do and you love helping clients achieve higher standards of security and greater appreciation of what good cyber security looks like – then I’d say we’ve already won.
