Bytes SP CTO is finalist for CSO of the Year – SC Awards Europe

Congratulations to David Rawle, CTO and Joint Managing Director of Bytes Security Partnerships on being shortlisted as a finalist for the CSO of the Year award at the highly coveted European SC Awards.

David, who heads up the technical division of Bytes Security Partnerships, was nominated by Bytes colleagues due to the strategic focus he brings to clients, the high performance of the BSP technical department, the strategic direction he provides the business and the work he conducts each month to raise the profile of information security issues amongst our customers.

Recent actions David has taken in this space include introducing an interview on Heartbleed with the Sunday Telegraph, customer education forum at C level on security issues, chairing Bytes security consolidation summit at BAFTA attended by 40 IT managers, hosting best practice technology workshops on Check Point to 60 delegates on HMS Belfast and monthly educational webinars on industry issues and new technologies.

With over 16 years experience in the industry, and (a lucky) 13 at BSP, David is integral to the technical excellence provided to our customers and we are delighted that his diligence and reputation amongst customers and with technology partners is being recognised with this high profile nomination.

This is the second year that David has been selected by the SC editorial team in this category and is a real honour for David who narrowly missed out on winning the award last year. This second nomination reflects the continuing and raised profile and quality of the technical services Bytes Security Partnerships offer.

" I am delighted that David's efforts to create a centre of technical excellence at Bytes are being recognised so publicly, and the value that he adds in consultancy sessions and strategy days with our customers is being shared with the wider security community. Bytes SP have built their entire proposition around the excellence of our technical department, having one of the few direct-to-engineer support and consultancy models in the industry. David is the driving force behind that, and it is great to see that experts in the industry value what he has created here as much as we do" said John Gilbertson, Managing Director, Bytes Security Partnerships
