KnowBe4 Wins UK Security Excellence Awards!


Computing's Security Excellence Awards celebrate the achievements of the IT industry's leading security companies, solutions, products and personalities - those are keeping every other part of the industry operating.

For 2018, they covered every element of success in the security landscape, from education to email.

With product and project-related awards, combined with organisational categories and accolades recognising outstanding individual achievement, there's an award to showcase every organisation's successes.

The awards ceremony took place on Wednesday 21 November - directly after Computing's Enterprise Security & Risk Management Live - where they revealed the industry's most outstanding companies, solutions, products and personalities, chosen by an expert panel of judges.

Computing magazine said: "If 2017 was the year of ransomware, with attacks like WannaCry and NotPetya, then 2018 has been the year of the data breach.

Facebook was one of the first enterprise-scale firms to face the threat of penalties under the GDPR, but it will be far from the last: breach complaints have more than doubled since the new regulation came into effect, according to the ICO.

That makes for a fascinating security environment, and one that tests the limits of the most ardent infosec professional. However, the industry has really stepped up to bat - as shown in the extremely high quality of entries for this year's Computing Security Excellence Awards.

KnowBe4 is thrilled to be in this excellent company and congratulates all the winners with being acknowledged as the leader in their respective fields:
