In previous years, Tom was a runner up for this award so he is delighted to win this time round. The 2012 BT Information Security Journalism Awards ceremony really was Tom’s time to shine as he was also nominated in two other awards categories. Tom’s investigation into the DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) market earned recognition in the Best Investigative Feature of the Year category, while he was also a contender for Best Cybercrime Feature of the Year. “I’m delighted to win Information Security Journalist of the Year – I’ve been nominated before so it’s great to walk away with the prize this time, especially being up against such stiff competition!
The judging panel was chaired by Ray Stanton, vice president of BT Advise, BT Global Services and included a number of security experts and academics. “Once again, enormous credit should go to all of our shortlisted journalists,”
