Robert O’Brien, CEO of leading Cyber Security firm MetaCompliance, has been awarded the ‘Most Influential CEO of the Year IT’ Award at the CV Corporate Excellence Awards 2019.

The 2019 Corporate Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate professionals and companies from across the globe that have gone above and beyond to maintain leadership in their industry, innovate and achieve outstanding results compared to their peers.

MetaCompliance has been developing software and content for the Cyber Security and Compliance market since 2005 and under Robert’s leadership, the company has quickly become one of the world’s leading providers of Cyber Security and Compliance software.

What differentiates the company from many of its competitors is its commitment to providing innovative software solutions to help organisations keep their staff safe online, secure their digital assets and protect their reputation and brand.

This has become increasingly important in an era of enhanced cyber threats and data breaches. As attacks become more sophisticated, organisations have had to re-evaluate their approach to Cyber Security to ensure they are equipped to deal with evolving threats.

With more than 30 years’ experience in the IT industry, Robert has led the business on a transformational journey that leverages the organisation’s deep domain experience in Information Security and Privacy.

Robert commented on the award win: “I’m honoured to win the ‘Most Influential CEO of the Year Award’. Winning this award cements the company’s achievements to date and recognises the fantastic work of our team in ensuring our clients can access the necessary automation and training to implement their Cyber Security awareness campaigns.”

The award continues the winning streak for the company after it recently won the award for Sustained Excellence in Cyber Security Solutions at the global Business Insight Awards and the Information Security/Compliance Software provider of the year award at the ACQ5 Awards.
