Sean O'Neil, Bedfordshire Police Cyber Security Advisor is the winner of the Fraud Fighter Award at the Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards!

On Tuesday night, 3rd October, Sean O'Neil, Bedfordshire Police Cyber Security Advisor, won the award for Fraud Fighter at the Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards in London. He was nominated by various businesses in the region for his dedication to the cause.

The Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards gives the opportunity to nominate an individual or team that deserves recognition for going over and above the call of duty when it comes to protecting organisations from cyber threats.

They may have saved the day from a cyber attack or malware infection, or rescued an organisation from ransomware. They could have implemented a cyber risk awareness campaign that made a difference to office culture when it came to phishing; or they could simply be a great advocate when it comes to security best practices.

Well done Sean! Thoroughly deserved!
