The CISO Alliance, renowned for its commitment to fostering the development of CISO skills through various initiatives, including working groups, community roundtables, and webinars, organized this year’s CISO of the Year competition. The ceremony honored an esteemed jury, including Ron Kneffel, Sven Mendler, and Ralf Kleinfeld, for contributing to IT security and data privacy across leading organizations.

Alina’s achievement is a testament to her exceptional skills and dedication and a tribute to the collaborative spirit and innovative culture of the Aroundtown group. “I am grateful to be part of such a fantastic team. This achievement reflects our collective passion and commitment to setting new standards for innovation in information security,” Alina remarked.

As the CISO of the Year 2024, Alina is poised to continue leading the way in the ever-evolving information security landscape. Her collaboration with Rescana exemplifies the impact of innovative thinking and collaboration in addressing the complex challenges of today’s digital world.
