Photo gallery: Kiwi infosec industry turns out for iSANZ awards

Around 200 people turned out for last week's second annual iSANZ security awards in Wellington, undeterred by earthquakes or a late change of venue.

Kendra Ross, iSANZ board chair, says the event, which honours those who have set new standards for making the onlines space a safer and more secure place, was a fantastic night.

As previously reported, PwC’s Game of Threats simulation game, which provided an interactive simulation of the real-world challenges of a cyber security incident, took out the Best Security Awareness Campaign award, while Air New Zealand won Best Security Project/Initiative for its organisation-wide security transformation programme.

RedShield was named Best Security Company.

In the evening’s only individual award, Kate Pearce, senior security consultant at Cisco New Zealand, was named Best International Superstar for her contributions in raising awareness and educating people about cyber security.

The evening also saw NetSafe win the Hall of Fame award for its efforts over the years in helping keep Kiwis safe online, and providing cyber security advice and assistance.
