Rodney Joffe Named a 2020 Cybersecurity Professional of the Year by the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards
We’re excited to announce that Rodney Joffe, Neustar Security CTO, SVP and Fellow and Chairman of the Neustar International Security Council, was named Cybersecurity Professional of the Year at the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards! Hosted by Cybersecurity Insiders, the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards honors individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security.
Rodney was recognized for his work as a cybersecurity pioneer, his technical expertise, and his dedication to driving the field of cybersecurity forward. This award marks the third year in a row that Rodney has been recognized for his contributions to information security, after SC Media UK presented him with the ‘Outstanding Contribution to Cyber Security’ award in 2019 and winning the ‘Personal Contribution to IT Security’ category at the 2018 Computing Security Awards.
Anyone who has worked with Rodney here at Neustar will tell you how well-deserved this honor is. After all, Rodney was the architect for the development of Neustar Security’s DNS Shield and has been instrumental in building our security capabilities. Along with his work for Neustar, he has served as a cybersecurity advisor to the White House, sat on the U.S. government’s cybersecurity intelligence panel and has led a number of cyber working groups and investigations into national and international cyber-attacks and viruses. He is one of the first civilians to receive the FBI Director’s Award for outstanding cyber investigating, due to his role in uncovering and taking down the Butterfly Botnet. He is regularly called upon to assist federal authorities with investigating and protecting against cybercrime and cyberterrorist activities, and recently received the Mary Litynski Lifetime Achievement Award from M3AAWG, the global Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group, for his work in fighting text spam, malware and DDoS attacks.
Please join us in celebrating Rodney’s most recent accolade and the recognition Neustar continues to receive for our hard work in protecting clients with innovative and resilient security solutions.
