Microsoft MVP Award, Year 8

Back in 2011, Microsoft gave me the rather awesome (IMHO) Most Valuable Professional Award for the first time. This is Microsoft's award for community leadership within a technology discipline which for me at the time, was developer security. I'm confident that award came largely due to the work I did on the OWASP Top 10 for .NET Developers series, a 10-part epic blog series that set me on the path to where I am today. Speaking of today, I awoke (exceptionally early!) to another very welcome email from Microsoft: I woke up at 1am unable to sleep with all these coding ideas for @haveibeenpwned in my head. Eventually just decided to get up at 3:30 and start work on...

Report URI Just Won the Best Emerging Technology Award!

I don't normally do back-to-back blog posts, but this was no normal week! I just posted about how I won the European Security Blogger Award Grand Prix Prize for the Best Overall Security Blog and per the title of this post, a couple of hours later Scott Helme and I backed it up with this at the SC Awards: To us! 🥂 #SCAwards2018 pic.twitter.com/Gv7hhzT9T2— Report URI (@reporturi) June 5, 2018 We were blown away - honestly stunned - and I think the look on Scott's face as he returned to the table with the award says it all: Frankly, the main reason we were shocked is that we were up against very stiff competition; incumbent players with...

I Just Won the European Security Blogger Award Grand Prix Prize for the Best Overall Security Blog!

Congrats. I am at the event where they announced it.— Andy Newman (@netdogca) June 5, 2018 That was the first I knew of winning the award and it took me a few days to pick it up hence the delay in writing this post. But wow, it...

AusCERT and the Award for Information Security Excellence

I've been at the AusCERT conference this week which has presented a rare opportunity to walk to a major event from my home rather than fly to the other side of the world. And what an awesome walk too, right on the turn into "winter", which means something quite different in this part of the world: Off to #AusCERT2018! It’s all blue outside today, what an awesome day for a short walk from home 😎 Catch me at the panel about data breaches at 13:20 today pic.twitter.com/x7plUhWkY4— Troy Hunt (@troyhunt) May 30, 2018 At the gala dinner last night, without any warning beforehand, I somehow walked away with this: .#AusCERT2018 Award for Information...
