The Cyber Security Cooperative Research Centre (CSCRC), has today announced a major research project between homegrown cyber security company Penten and CSIRO’s Data61, the data and digital specialist arm of Australia’s national science agency, to extend the country’s sovereign advantage in autonomous and active defence.

At the inaugural Australian Defence Industry Awards last night, Penten was awarded Cyber Business of the Year. In addition to winning the overall cyber category, three Penten staff made the finalist list: Matthew Wilson, Executive of the Year; Ben Whitham, Innovator of the Year and Cameron Humphries, Engineer of the Year.

Matthew Wilson, CEO of Penten, was awarded EY Entrepreneur of the Year, in the Emerging Male category at an exclusive awards ceremony in Sydney on 13 August 2019.

EY Entrepreneur of The Year is a unique global program that recognises entrepreneurial achievement among individuals that demonstrate vision, leadership and success — and work to improve the quality of life in their communities, countries and around the world.

Last night in Sydney, Penten was named Australia and New Zealand’s Most Innovative Company for 2019 and also took out Best Innovation Program, 2019 in the Government category at the prestigious Australian Financial Review and Boss Magazine Awards.

Penten ranked first for both awards from over 800 organisations across Australia and New Zealand. This award is based on rigorous assessment processes managed by Australian consultancy Inventium in conjunction with a panel of industry experts judges.
