Andrea Manning

Security Leader Of the Year

Our security leader of the year is addressing the growing need for micro business to arm themselves against the ever increasing and complex threats presented by cybersecurity. By establishing her organisation, she is empowering business owners to educate themselves and take action to prevent threats to their businesses. Judges felt that the organisation’s success can be put down to her entrepreneurial approach, to having reinvented herself and to her energy to create an innovative, easy to digest and implement solution. She may have entered this mature market a little later than most, but she has brought a fresh perspective to find ways to increase better adoption of security practices through a reimagined approach. By “keeping it human”, she is helping secure the future for small and micro business against an otherwise invisible threat.
