IT Pro writer nominated for Information Security Journalist of the Year


IT Pro senior staff writer Tom Brewster has earned two nominations in the BT Information Security Journalism Awards 2011.

The first is for Information Security Journalist of the Year, where he will face stiff competition from IT Pro contributing editor Davey Winder - a three-time winner of the award - and two other candidates.

Tom has also been nominated for writing the Best Generic Security Feature of the Year, with his piece The eBanksy revolution.

BT's Ray Stanton, vice president of professional services and chairman of the judging panel, said: "The past year has been a big one for information security journalism and this was reflected in the entries to this year's awards.

"A dramatic increase in both the quality and quantity of submissions made judging this year's awards more difficult than ever before."

The winners will be announced and presented with their awards at a ceremony in central London on 6 October.
