Living Security Wins Three 2021 Stevie® Awards for Women in Business

Women Around the World to Be Recognized During Virtual Event


AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Living Security has been named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Startup of the Year-Business Service Industries category in the 18th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business. Living Security CEO and co-founder Ashley Rose also was honored with Silver Awards in two categories: Woman of the Year-Technology and Female Executive of the Year-Business Services for companies with 11-2,500 employees.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

Winners will be celebrated during a virtual awards ceremony on Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022. Registration for the ceremony is now on sale.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.  

“We’re honored to receive this recognition from the Stevie Awards for the work Living Security is doing to help enterprises address cybersecurity human risk, as well as making progress to increase the number of female voices in what has been a traditionally male-dominated industry,” Rose said. “It’s especially gratifying to be recognized alongside all of these other strong women business leaders.”

Details about the Stevie Awards for Women in Business and the list of Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in all categories are available at

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 160 business professionals around the world, working on eight juries.

Maggie Gallagher Miller, president of the Stevie Awards, said, “We thought the remarkable stories of achievement we saw in last year’s awards couldn’t be topped, but we were wrong. Women-owned and -run organizations have contributed significantly to the increase in innovation and entrepreneurial activity we’ve seen globally since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The nominations submitted to the 18th Stevie Awards for Women in Business that attest to this are inspiring, humbling, and motivating. We congratulate all of our Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie winners. We look forward to celebrating them during our January 13 virtual ceremony, and to hearing from some of them during our Women|Future Conference.”

The Stevie Awards will stage its fourth annual Women|Future Conference virtually on November 1-5. Registration is just $115, or $49 for current students with an active student ID. Details and registration are available at
