The Cyber Security Coalition is launching the campaign Cyber Security Personality of the Year 2022, an award that recognizes and celebrates the achievements and efforts of Belgium-based cyber security experts and enthusiasts working to improve the country’s cyber resilience.

Are you Belgium’s Cyber Security Personality of the Year?

Welcome to the second edition of the Cyber Personality of the Year Award recognizing professionals who demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in cybersecurity in Belgium.

The Award competition launched by the Cyber Security Coalition is a totally independent event whereby a multidisciplinary, impartial jury is able to make its decision on merit alone.

Why this Cyber Security Award? 

It has never been more important to recognize excellence in the field of cyber security. Malicious attacks are on the rise and cybersecurity teams are constantly countering evolving threats. It is essential that we identify and celebrate the extraordinary achievements of the professionals who undertake this challenging work in the Belgian cyber security sector. The Award showcases the vast range of activities ongoing in Belgium to keep us safe in the virtual world. Winners and finalists are an inspiration to other individuals, who wish to work to protect others in the same manner.

We encourage all those, who are committed to progressing the Belgian cybersecurity industry, to apply.
