NTT Security, a specialised security company and centre of excellence in security for NTT Group, has launched its inaugural Women in Cybersecurity Awards as part of an initiative to recognise and inspire talented female professionals and newcomers in the cybersecurity industry.
The new awards, developed in partnership with Global Digital Women (GDW), will recognise the voices of women in cybersecurity across Europe and change perceptions of them as well as inspire young women to consider a career in the sector.
There are two categories: ‘Newcomer’, which celebrates women who have been working in the cybersecurity sector for under five years or who have recently completed a cybersecurity-based degree and ‘Professional’ for women who have been managing a cybersecurity team or been involved with the industry for five or more years.
The awards are open for entries until August 16 in the DACH region: Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and until September 13 in Northern Europe: UK, Benelux and Nordics.
Finalists will be chosen by a panel of independent experts, with the winners announced at Information Security World (ISW), a series of established industry events held by NTT Security in Vienna on September 17 and London on October 15.
