Tech Trailblazers Awards logo

In its fifth year, the scheme continues to focus around the ethos of finding innovation from anywhere in the world, from the smallest startups to more established players.

This aim to highlight both up-and-coming and established talent from all regions is reflected in the Firestarter Award for non-VC funded early stage startups. New this year are the Female and Male Tech Trailblazers of the Year awards, celebrating individual success and contribution of men and women in the enterprise tech space.

These categories run alongside the main technology categories of Big Data, Cloud, FinTech, IoT, Mobile, Security, Storage and Virtualization.

In addition to the expert judging panel, the voting public can now help determine who will win in all categories by voting online by 11:59pm Pacific Time on Friday 17th February 2017.

About the Tech Trailblazers Awards
Tech Trailblazers is a new concept in awards, designed explicitly for smaller businesses and startups that are five years old or less and at C-series funding or below.

The awards have low barriers to entry and not only recognize startup innovation but proactively help startups grow their business.

The awards include the following categories:

  • Big Data Trailblazers
  • Cloud Trailblazers
  • FinTech Trailblazers
  • Firestarter Trailblazers
  • IoT Trailblazers
  • Mobile Trailblazers
  • Security Trailblazers
  • Storage Trailblazers
  • Virtualization Trailblazers

Early stage startups (2 years and younger without VC funding) are able to apply for a chosen tech category free of charge via the new Firestarter bursary and are automatically submitted for the new Firestarter award.

In 2016, the Tech Trailblazers introduced the Female and Male Tech Trailblazers of the Year categories to celebrate individual success within senior members of enterprise tech startups.

The Tech Trailblazers Awards is supported by sponsors and industry partners including AfriLabs, Amoo Venture Capital Advisory, beSUCCESS, bnetTV, BigDataStartups, China AXLR8R, the Cloud Security Alliance, Computing, ExecEvent, GFT, GoMoNews, The Green Grid, GSMA, The Icehouse, Innovation Warehouse, Internet of Things Events, IP EXPO Europe, Launchpad Europe, L’Informaticien, Lissted, MIT/Stanford Venture Lab, The Next Silicon Valley, Outsource, Prezi, The Register, Silicon Cape Initiative, Skolkovo, StarTau, Startup America, Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), Tech in Asia, TechNode, TiE Silicon Valley, Wazoku, Ventureburn and VMware.

Giuliani announces he’ll be Trump’s czar for the cyber thing

Rudy Giuliani explains the cyber.Fox & Friends, Fox News reader comments 164 Share this story On Fox News' morning show Fox & Friends, former mayor (and frequent proxy for Donald Trump) Rudy Giuliani announced that he would be coordinating a cybersecurity advisory group for the Trump administration. Giuliani's bona fides for this role apparently spring from his time as chair of the "Cybersecurity, Privacy and Crisis Management Practice" at the New York law firm Greenberg Traurig, a position he assumed a year ago. However, it's not clear that Giuliani has ever had any direct experience in cybersecurity law or policy.

Giuliani previously was a partner in a Houston-based international law firm Bracewell (formerly Bracewell & Giuliani) for over 10 years, and he ran his own security consulting firm based on his mayoral experience and credibility from New York City's measures taken after the September 11, 2001 terror attack.

But Giuliani is really counting on private industry to provide all the answers. "The President-elect decided that he wanted to bring in on a regular basis the private sector—the corporate leaders in particular and thought leaders in particular for cyber, because we're so far behind," said Giuliani. "And it's his belief which I share, that a lot of the solutions are out there, we're just not sharing them.
IT's like cancer—there's cancer research going on all over the place. You'd almost wish they'd all get together in one room, and maybe they'd find a cure." Giuliani said he believes that industry will have to lead an answer to cybersecurity rather than government. "That's where we have the great creativity and we have the huge amount of money, and that's where we have these great companies, the greatest in the world," Giuliani said this morning. "So the idea here is to bring together corporate leaders and their technological people.

The president will meet with them on an ongoing basis, as well as anyone else in the administration… I'll coordinate the whole thing." The goal appears to be a one-way flow of information from industry to the government. "Number one, it'll give the government all the information available in the private sector," Giuliani explained. "Number two, it'll form a little more connection between these people who are doing cybersecurity so they can work with each other.
Some of these people, you put one and two together, you're going to come up with six." Much of the private sector already shares information with each other, so it's not really clear what benefit other than presidential face time corporate executives and "technological people" will get out of this proposed arrangement.

The financial industry, for example, has the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center; the auto, aviation, telecommunications, health, retail, and transportation industries, among others, all have their own organizations as well. Previously, there have been efforts, including the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015, to encourage an exchange of information between government and industry.

And the Obama administration made attempts to foster other industries to form information sharing and analysis organizations (ISAOs) through the Department of Homeland Security's National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center.

That administration also encouraged information sharing standards. It's not clear what roles any ISAOs will have in this new cybersecurity body, or even who the "thought leaders" Giuliani wants to participate will be.

But Giuliani apparently wants to include foreign cybersecurity firms, including some from Israel. "They have tremendous cyberdefense research," he said this morning. "We don't get access to that over here."
