European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards 2021– Winners Announced!

European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards 2021– Winners Announced!

Yet another year has passed, and so too has another evening celebrating the industry’s best bloggers, podcasters, and social media personalities! Unfortunately, we’ve had to skip the pub again and opt for a virtual awards ceremony but as usual, we remain consistent with the alcohol supply. Thanks to our sponsors Qualys and KnowBe4, cocktail kits were delivered for free to all attendees based in the UK to accompany an online cocktail-making class provided by Patrick Fogarty of Doctor Ink’s Curiosities/Stir Crazy. Those outside of the UK also received an Amazon gift voucher to purchase their drinking supplies. 

Judges – Yvonne Eskenzi of Eskenzi PR, Javvad Malik and Erich Kron of KnowBe4, Paul Baird and Anne Lenoir of Qualys, Joe Pettit of Bora and Quentyn Taylor of Canon Europe – announced the winners in each of the nine categories. The full list of winners is as follows:
