SC Awards Europe 2016

Hundreds of guests gathered on Tuesday 7th of June at the stunning Old Billingsgate situated on the River Thames in the heart of London for the SC Awards Europe 2016 gala dinner to celebrate excellence, innovation and achievement in the information security industry.

SC Magazine UK editor-in-chief Tony Morbin praised the audience as being the representatives of those whose technology and expertise prevented cyber-criminals having a free rein, with the exemplars of excellence being recognised at the event. He then introduced the speaker for the night, Gary Brailsford-Hart, Director of Information, CISO, Intelligence and Information Directorate at the City of London Police. Brailsford-Hart emphasised the role of law enforcement as crime moved online, but noted it could not be done alone, and needed active cooperation and partnership with industry in the fight against cyber-crime. Then came the glitz and glamour of the Awards themselves, hosted by comedian Mark Watson.
