About us

The National Cyber Awards was launched in 2019 as a celebration of excellence and innovation for those who are committed to cybersecurity. Launched to spotlight the outstanding achievements of professionals, businesses, and educators across private & public sectors, our awards recognise those at the forefront of safeguarding digital landscapes and enhancing security.

The awards were born from a vision by industry leaders passionate about elevating the cybersecurity field. These founders recognised the need for a formal accolade that not only honours achievements but also inspires engagement with the ever-evolving challenges of cybersecurity.

Our mission is clear: to identify and celebrate exceptional contributions to the field, providing a benchmark of excellence for all to aspire to. We envision a future where every innovation in cybersecurity is recognised and celebrated, encouraging continuous improvement and adoption of best practices across the globe.
Thanks to our supporters the awards are free to enter, and we provide every finalist with a complimentary ticket. This approach helps us minimise barriers to entry and make participation accessible to all.

Our panel of independent judges upholds the integrity of The National Cyber Awards judging process by adhering to a strict code of conduct. This code ensures a fair, transparent, and robust evaluation process. We are committed to preventing any pay-to-play practices, and maintaining the highest standards of impartiality in our awards.

Join us as we honour those who drive innovation and uphold the highest standards of cybersecurity, shaping a safer digital world for all.
