Hack The Box has been named Security Training Programme of the Year 2021 at the Security Excellence Awards in London.

With the majority of staff now working outside the safety of the corporate network, training them to recognize threats and closing the cyber skills gap has never been more important. 

This award is for a company – not necessarily a specialist training provider – that is working to bring new people into the world of security through a dedicated training programme.

What are the Security Excellence Awards?
Computing's Security Excellence Awards celebrate the achievements of the IT industry's leading security companies, solutions, products, and personalities – the ones who are keeping the rest of the industry operating.

Since March last year, security has faced a host of unique challenges: while remote and hybrid working are the ones that stick in everyone’s mind, nation-state and ransomware attacks are rapidly on the rise – with a corresponding increase in sophistication.

Security teams have gone above and beyond this year to combat these threats, and that work deserves recognition. That’s why these awards honor the people, organizations, projects, and products that have made it possible to not just survive, but succeed.

How are the winners chosen?
Judges select the winners of each category based on three primary factors:

▫️ Innovation
The entry is detailing something totally new or has a new approach to an existing challenge

▫️ Relevance
The entry demonstrates an outstanding understanding of their chosen field

▫️ Success
The entry shows clear evidence of success, leadership, and adoption

Judges described Hack The Box as “a perfect training platform for cyber security specialists. It provides plenty of hands-on real-life experience and a deep understanding of systems, how they work and how to protect them.”
