A Worcestershire businesswoman is celebrating a year of award wins for her pioneering work in the cyber security industry.
Lisa Ventura, who is the CEO & Founder of The UK Cyber Security Association which is based in Worcester, has won a hat trick of awards in 2019 for her work as well as being selected as one of the Top 50 Women of Influence in Cyber Security in the UK. The awards include SC Awards Europe “Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security Award”, Cyber Security Awards UK “Cyber Security Personality of the Year” and Women in Cyber Security USA “Supporter of Women in Cyber Security Award”
Lisa gained these highly prestigious accolades for her work as the CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association and her contribution to the cyber security industry as a writer/blogger and thought leader.

Lisa Ventura, CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association, said: “To win these industry awards and be selected as one of the 50 most influential women in Cyber Security in the UK is a huge honour. I entered the cyber security industry in 2009 and over the years I’ve seen the industry grow and develop as new technologies and new ways are discovered to help keep us safe from the growing cyber threat. In my current capacity as CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association I work tirelessly to raise as much awareness as possible as to the importance of cyber security – not just at board level but for all employees of businesses and for the general public too. Cyber security really is everyone’s responsibility, and the more that can be done to help educate people as to the importance of it, the better equipped the UK will be to combat the growing cyber threat in 2020 and beyond.”
