Graham Cluley nominated in European Security Blogger awards - vote now!

Vote Graham CluleyI'm delighted to announce that this site has made the finals of the prestigious European Security Blogger Awards in three different categories:

  • Best European Corporate Security Blog
  • Most Educational Blog
  • Grand Prix Prize for the Best Overall Security Blog

Additionally, my @gcluley Twitter account is in the running - alongside some hefty opponents - in the title for Best EU Security Tweeter.

Frankly, even if I don't win any prizes, I'm as happy as a Frenchman who has invented a pair of self-removing trousers to even be noticed. Because the competition in these categories is very tough.

Even if you don't have much interest in feeding my ego by voting, you should check out the voting page because it contains a fine list of security blogs and podcasts - some of which you may not have heard of before.

I'm please to see Bitdefender's Hot for Security blog and Tripwire's State of Security blog also in the mix, both of which I contribute articles for.

I can't tell you to vote for me, because that would be rude. But, err, please vote for me. Thanks. :) Or at least Bitdefender or Tripwire, so I can attempt to bask in their glory.

>> Vote now in the European Security Blogger Awards 2015 <<

Unlike the recent security blogger awards that were held at RSA in San Francisco recently, the EU Security Blogger awards appear to be open for everyone to vote. So feel free to go for it. (Once only, obviously.)

The awards are due to be announced during the Infosec show in London in early June, and you have until Friday 29 May to cast your vote.

You'll be shocked to hear that I have already voted... now it's over to you.

    Are there other security blogs in Europe? They need another catagory, "most entertaining"

    Well, I will contribute to the cause. Good luck!

      Thanks David.

      Funnily enough I won the "most entertaining security blog" at the equivalent worldwide awards at RSA earlier this year, but didn't make the grade for the EU shindig. Details of the RSA prize here: https://www.grahamcluley.com/award-entertaining-security-blog/

      Maybe Americans find me more amusing? :)

    They did have "most entertaining" and a whole lot more. Tripwire and Sophos got my votes where Graham was not listed. But I was surprised that threatpost was not listed,unless they are mostly registered in the US.

    You are right Graham ,you are listed in good company. If anything,others who don't know you may check out your site when seeing the list. There were a couple I didn't know of.

      Yes, ThreatPost is an odd exception. I'm not sure if it's because ThreatPost is mostly NA-based that it's not included.

      It's also a shame not to see ThreatPosts's stablemate SecureList (both sites are owned by Kaspersky) and ESET's WeLiveSecurity not making the grade, amongst others. Equally baffling is the absence of F-Secure, one of the longest-running security blogs in the business. Perhaps nobody nominated them?

      And there's a least one podcast down for the title of "Best European Security Podcast" which I *know* is hosted by a North American and his colleague in the southern hemisphere, and even edited outside the EU. Maybe they're the best at talking about European security? Heh heh. I feel comfortable having a pop at them because I’m not in that category, used to work at their firm, and I voted for them regardless. :)

      The important thing is that it's all a bit of fun, and shouldn't be taken too seriously. That's what's important. Oh, and that I win of course. That's important too.
