Susie Hargreaves OBE receives Executive of the Year nomination for the internet’s most prestigious industry awards in the UK.

IWF’s CEO is a finalist in a new award category at the Internet Services Providers’ Association (ISPA UK) 2017 annual ISPA awards.

The Executive of the Year celebrates the leaders driving innovation and success in the industry.

The ISPA awards recognise the very best from ISPs of all shapes and sizes, companies offering the best in security, cloud and customer service, as well as those providing vital services to ISPs such as law firms and hardware manufacturers.

The winners will be announced at the gala ceremony on the 13 July in central London.

Susie Hargreaves OBE, said: “IWF is a leading global organisation identifying and working to remove child sexual abuse images and videos from the internet. We also develop cutting-edge technical tools to help internet companies keep their services safe, and to ultimately help those children whose images of abuse circulate on the internet.

“I’m delighted to see so many of our Members nominated across the categories, as well as being shortlisted for an award ourselves.”

ISPA Secretary General Nick Lansman commented: “The companies shortlisted at this year’s ISPA Awards play a vital role in ensuring the UK remains a world leading digital economy. The 19th ISPAs once again demonstrates the innovation and diversity of our industry and I look forward to finding out the winners at the gala awards ceremony on July 13.”
