LONDON, September 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Mathieu Gorge, CEO and Founder of IT security firm VigiTrust has been named a double winner in this year's Business Worldwide Magazine (BWM) CEO awards.
Gorge was praised for both his personal and corporate achievements when he was named winner of the international business publication's IT/Technology CEO of the Year (Ireland), as well as the country's Most Innovative CEO of the Year.
The Dublin-based GRC (Governance, Risk, and Compliance) SaaS service provider helps companies ensure they are within the law when it comes to key legal aspects of corporate security such as Vendor Risk Management and Third Party Assurance. At the same time, they also offer dedicated e-learning programmes.
Such is their influence and success that the company, formed in 2003, now also boasts offices in New York and France. Today they provide SaaS GRC platforms, eLearning and strategic services to a host of different sectors in up to 100 countries around the world. These include healthcare, financial services and government.
Congratulating Gorge on his accomplishments over the past 14 years, a spokesman for BWM said: "VigiTrust's rise to success has been really quite phenomenal. We were all impressed with Mathieu's commitment and enthusiasm for what must be one of the most important industries for business around the globe."
Another offshoot for the French-born bilingual entrepreneur is his journalism and lecturing. His columns appear in IT security journals and magazines while he has lectured at international security conferences around the world.
Thanking BWM for his award, Gorge said: "I'm grateful for the panel for choosing me for the award and, of course, also to all those colleagues and clients who took time out of their own busy work schedules to vote for me.
"It is absolutely essential for every line of business to be up to date with both cyber security initiatives and the legal implications surrounding the industry. Data breaches are not only increasing in number, but also becoming far more sophisticated - just look at recent hacking attacks with the NHS system, as well as the politicians' emails at the Houses of Parliament.
"Understandably, many companies are so busy getting on with the day to day running of their business that they just don't have the time to keep checking that their IT systems are secure and complaint with new government initiatives. That's where we can help."
