March 4, 2019
Robert Herjavec, Founder & CEO of Herjavec Group, has been named the “Trailblazing Cybersecurity Executive of the Year” at the 2019 Cyber Defense InfoSec Awards.
This is a new award category for which the recipient must have demonstrated their excellence as a visionary and trailblazer over a sustained period of time. The criteria includes the following:
- A record of outstanding effectiveness at stopping breaches and choosing the right tools and technologies to continue to defeat threats.
- The ability to inspire others - to share, promote and drive the vision of one or more market sectors of cybersecurity.
- The ability to predict and therefore defend against new types of cyber threats.
“As one of the trailblazing cybersecurity executives, Robert Herjavec is the first market leader to drive MSSPs in the direction of Identity and Access Management (IAM) before all others. He had the vision and foresight to realize that most breaches are shifting to the cloud because of too many unmanaged cloud-based services, poor and understaffed IT management and shadow IT. For this and other leadership activities Mr. Herjavec has undertaken in the field of cybersecurity, we believe he deserves this award as the Trailblazing Cybersecurity Executive of the Year for 2019,” says Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
Robert founded Herjavec Group in 2003 and since then, his ability to interpret industry trends and understand enterprise business security demands has helped him achieve the profile of a global cybersecurity expert. Today, Herjavec Group is a global leader in cybersecurity. Robert has served as a Cybersecurity Advisor for the Government of Canada, participated in the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and is a member of the US Chamber of Commerce Task Force for Cybersecurity. His views on the threat landscape, on emerging technologies and on the need for a proactive security framework are regularly profiled across print, digital and television mediums.
