Dan Raywood, executive editor of SC Magazine, said: "The SC awards Europe has always attracted the industry's best people, technology and companies to enter and it is a delight to see some really great names shortlisted for this year's awards. After an exceptional year for cyber security in terms of research and development in 2012, we congratulate Brian Honan for being among those shortlisted.

"Brian, who picked up the runners-up trophy for his consultancy last year, is firmly in the running for this award due to multiple speaking opportunities throughout the last 12 months, the work he has done for the Irish Computer Emergency Readiness Team, IRISSCERT, and his establishment as the 'go to' man for security in Ireland."

Commenting on his selection as a finalist, Brian Honan, CEO, BH Consulting, said: "It is a great honour to be selected for the final again this year and I see this as a reflection as to how vibrant the information security industry is here in Ireland.  As a country we have a wealth of talent working in the security field and we are quickly earning a reputation as a centre of excellence. Hopefully, we can build on this success and bring more recognition to the talented individuals and exciting start-ups in the field."
