EU Security Blogger Meetup & Awards 2014

Last night saw the 2014 EU Security Bloggers’ Meetup and Awards. The night was a great success and it was great to meet up with so many involved in the infosec community. A big thank you has to go to Jack Daniel and Tenable Network Security, Firemon, Tripewire, and Infosec for sponsoring a supporting the night.

There were a number of fun elements to the night such as a caricature artist who created zombie caricatures for those attending. There were also various spot prizes given out during the event.

The awards were held and here is the list of shortlists for each category and the eventual winners. The winners were selected using a combination of public voting and votes by the judging panel.
