BT announces the shortlist for its prestigious Information Security Journalism Awards 2011

BT is pleased to announce the shortlist for the 2011 BT Information Security Journalism Awards. Now in their fifth year the awards are sponsored by BT Global Services and aim to reward and recognise leadership, excellence and innovation in the field of information security journalism.

Ray Stanton, Vice President Professional Services, BT Global Services, and Chairman of the judging panel said: “The past year has been a big one for information security journalism and this was reflected in the entries to this year’s awards. A dramatic increase in both the quality and quantity of submissions made judging this year’s awards more difficult than ever before.”

The winners will be announced and presented with their awards at a ceremony in central London on Thursday 6th October, 2011.

Since 2005 BT Global Services has organised the Information Security Journalism Awards to celebrate and inspire journalists who cover this increasingly important topic and recognise the vital role that information security journalism plays in raising awareness amongst businesses and the public about the issues surrounding security and the solutions they can implement to remain secure.
