"The likelihood of ransomware attacks impacting businesses due to a third-party breach has nearly doubled from only 15% in 2020 to 27% in 2022. As a result, it’s more crucial than ever that leaders examine their risk factors throughout the entire supply chain," said Paul Paget, CEO of Black Kite.

We’re honored to receive these awards from such distinguished CISOs as they confirm Black Kite is providing best-of-class service to our customers and partners."

As CISO Choice Awards esteemed Judge Sue Lapierre, VP, IT Governance, Information Security Officer of Prologis, said in a CISOs Connect press release, "This year was extremely gratifying as we saw innovative approaches across threat types to safeguard our organizations. The CISO Choice Awards are a valuable recognition, and all of us who belong to the exclusive CISOs Connect Community want to recognize and congratulate this year's winners."
