From the editor


To say the world of cybersecurity has been turned on its head in the last 18 months is no overstatement. As the pandemic swept the globe, entire industries were transformed. And more or less overnight, the world switched to remote working. 

All at once, the global attack surface grew – and the job of the CISO and IT teams became bigger, more urgent. More than ever, security directors are at the heart of business and front and centre of rapid organisational management.

As many firms look to adopt a hybrid model, the office perimeter is wider, more porous and demands pervasive zero trust protection. At the same time, malevolent actors, ransomware and phishing are rampant.

Today’s CISOs, vendors and security experts stand charged with rewriting global cybersecurity strategy in the face of a new and complex maelstrom of threats. In these untested waters, robust technology leadership is critical.

For decades SC Awards Europe, the most prestigious awards in the cybersecurity sector, have sought out and celebrated the very best experts in the field. This year’s awards – assessed by a fresh and prestigious panel of over 60 judges – will commend strong stewardship in a time of transformation, technological innovation, and threat mitigation amid a rapidly evolving landscape.

We look forward to celebrating your achievements in person – as the SC Awards Europe returns back to the LIVE stage in June 2022.
