Nominations Open for 2024’s European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards

Today, Eskenzi PR are proud to announce that nominations are open for the 11th annual European Cybersecurity Bloggers Awards. The 2024 event is sponsored by KnowBe4, Keeper Security and Coro and supported by our media partners, Infosecurity Magazine and the IT Security Guru.

The awards aim to celebrate the industry’s best blogs, podcasts, and vlogs, as well as the exceptional talent who contribute to these forums. This year, the award will feature a brand-new category celebrating new and alternative media, The Visionary – The Best Use of Alternative media, including TikTokers, Substack champions, YouTube short creators, Instragrammers and LinkedIn Newsletter writers.

Another new category for 2024 is The Conversation Starter – Best Blog/Podcast/Vlog that Champions Diverse Voices and New Perspectives. This category aims to celebrate a blog, vlog or podcast that champions diverse voices and tackles pressing, yet often underdiscussed, topics. This could be anything from menopause to mental health.

Alongside these new categories are popular returning favourites, including The Vlogger – The Best Cybersecurity Video or Video Blog, The Corporates – Best Cybersecurity Vendor Podcast, and The Newcomer – Best Blog or Podcast Less Than One Year Old. 

Nominations will close on 30th April 2024. A shortlist will then be revealed, and a public vote will open. The result of this vote will be combined with picks from an esteemed judging panel to determine the winners. So far, this year’s judging panel includes:

  • Darren Guccione, CEO and co-founder, Keeper Security
  • Rachel Cheyfitz, director of product marketing, Coro
  • Javvad Malik, lead security awareness advocate, KnowBe4
  • Yvonne Eskenzi, Co-Founder and Director of Eskenzi PR
  • Brian Honan, founder of the European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards and CEO of BH Consulting
  • Beth Maundrill and James Coker, Infosecurity Magazine
