The European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards 2023 are back for a tenth successive year. This year’s sponsors include KnowBe4, provider of the leading security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, and Keeper Security, the leading provider of cloud-based zero-trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity software protecting passwords, privileged access, secrets and connections. The awards are committed to celebrating the industry’s best bloggers, vloggers, podcasters and social media influencers.
Nominations are open now and the event will take place on the 20th of June 2023 at Tapa Tapa restaurant near London’s Excel from 6pm, after doors close for Infosecurity Europe that day. Previous award winners include renowned blogging and podcast stars such as Troy Hunt, creator of Have I Been Pwned, Smashing Security co-hosts Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault, and Geoff White, creator of the Lazarus Heist.
“Cybersecurity is an immense topic with many different facets. There are some truly exceptional people within the cybersecurity community working to spread awareness, educate the public and discuss the cybersecurity issues that really matter,” said Darren Guccione, CEO and co-founder of Keeper Security. “We’re proud to be sponsoring the European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards that recognise these blogs and podcasts, and the influencers behind them, for all the positive work they do for the industry.”
Awards will be given to worthy recipients with titles such as The Noob for best new blog/vlog/podcast, The Teacher for best educational blog/vlog/podcast, The Tech Whizz for best technical content and the Best Social Media Account to Follow. Finally, The All-Rounder will be awarded to the best overall blog/vlog/podcast.
“I’m pleased to have taken part in these awards in some capacity over the past decade, having won a few myself,” said Javvad Malik, lead security awareness advocate at KnowBe4. “Content is continually evolving and it’s great to see more vlogs and podcasts emerging that keep cybersecurity discussions intriguing and yes, it is possible that they’re often humorous and occasionally fun. I love the idea of taking a subject like cybersecurity that may be thought of as dull initially and turning it into something that is truly insightful, as well as entertaining.”
Nominations will close on Thursday, the 20th of April 2023. A shortlist will then be revealed and opened to the public vote. The results will be tallied and combined with the judges’ – including Keeper’s Darren Guccione, KnowBe4’s Javvad Malik, Yvonne Eskenzi, founder of Eskenzi PR, James Coker, editor at Infosecurity Magazine and Niamh Vianney Muldoon, CISO at Fenergo – top picks to determine the winners. Finally, the process will culminate with a live, in-person event at Tapa Tapa restaurant, next door to the Excel Conference Centre, on the first evening of Infosecurity Europe (20th June 2023).
