Lead organiser of Security Serious Week, Yvonne Eskenzi, Director of Eskenzi PR said:  “The daily headlines of hacks and breaches emphasises the challenges the UK and the rest of the world face – but that doesn’t mean we should roll over. The Unsung Heroes Awards means professionals from the private and public sectors, plus media and bloggers, will finally gain the recognition they deserve. Hopefully, these individuals will act as ambassadors for the profession, encouraging any promising hackers to join the good fight rather than be lured over to the dark side.”

The Unsung Heroes Awards are part of Security Serious Week, a week long campaign that aims to arm individuals and organisations with the intelligence and capabilities to thwart attacks.
