Infosecurity Europe is just a few weeks away, which means that it is also time for the EU Security Blogger awards. Huzzah!
I missed the awards last year because I was giving a talk about security risks associated with
the cloud somebody else's computer in grim, depressing Monte Carlo. How I wished I could have been attending Infosecurity Europe in London, and been hobnobbing with my fellow security bloggers instead...
Well, this year I will be there in London and, I'm chuffed to bits to announce, grahamcluley.com has been nominated in a (somewhat hard-to-believe) grand total of SEVEN categories:
- Best Corporate Security Blog
- Best European Corporate Security Blog
- Best Security Video Blog
- Most Entertaining Blog
- Most Educational Blog
- Best EU Security Tweeter
- Grand Prix Prize for the Best Overall Security Blog
To take part in the EU Security Blogger awards is simple. You just click on this link.
What's much harder is choosing who to vote for. The awards have expanded, and there are many more people and companies up for each award - with some truly impressive names. If you have any interest in computer security I strongly recommend checking out the list and adding some of those sites to your RSS reader, as all have interesting things to say.
Anyway, I found it really easy to choose who I was going to vote for in... oh... about seven of the categories, but you will have to make your own minds up.
What are you waiting for? Voting closes at midnight GMT on Friday the 3rd June 2016.
To be honest, being nominated in any category is exciting enough - but I'm especially pleased to see I made the videos shortlist as I ramped up my video output in the last six months and plan to make many more in future.
So, the message is clear. If you don't want me to make any more videos, don't - whatever you do - vote for me.
Fingers crossed on that one (and if I fail to meet the grade I'll simply try to pry the gong out of the cold, dead hands of Javvad Malik...)
Got a favourite security blog? Why not share it with others by leaving a comment below? We all benefit from sharing security expertise and helping to raise awareness of online security and privacy issues with the public.
PS. I think I forgot to include the voting link. So here it is again...
