Cyber security is often overlooked - or even actively avoided - by everyone outside of the IT team. And yet, having a strong security posture is absolutely critical to operate efficiently in the modern world. That's why we at Computing hold the Security Excellence Awards every year, and why we're so pleased to announce this year's shortlist.
The events of 2020, with the majority of firms moving to a remote working culture, have shaken up the security world. No longer limited to a single location, organisations are finding that their 'perimeter' has widened to include hundreds of new devices with a multitude of security settings - or even none at all.
As a result, cyber security in 2020 is like nothing we have seen before. Teams have had to respond quickly to rapid change, and the adoption of DevOps practices has grown as a result. Making it onto the shortlist this year, more than any other, is a sign of real accomplishment.
