PC Pro staff have picked up a trio of nominations for this year's BT Information Security Journalism Awards.
Contributing editor Davey Winder, who last year collected the Enigma Award for his outstanding contribution to security journalism, is this year nominated for Information Security Journalist of the Year. It's a title Davey has won three times previously.
News editor Nicole Kobie wins her second successive nomination for Best Information Security News Story of the Year, this time for her exposé of the flaws in TalkTalk's net safety filter.
And finally, contributing editor Stewart Mitchell has been nominated for Best Privacy Feature of the Year for How the Social Networks Sold Your Privacy.
The winners of the awards, which are judged by an independent panel of security experts and academics, will be announced on 13 November.
I've never thought to ask before, but is Nicole Kobie the daughter of Jacqui McShee, the much-admired singer with a pure soprano voice in the folk group Pentangle, in the seventies?
