A message from our 2022 sponsor Qualys

Posted on Updated on

We are delighted that Qualys are sponsoring our 2022 White Hat Ball in aid of Childline. With their support we hope to raise over £200,000 for this vital children’s service at next year’s Ball.

We spoke to Paul Baird of Qualys about why they have offered their generous support.

“Qualys was founded in 1999 as one of the first SaaS security companies, leading the way with Vulnerability Management, we have expanded our portfolio to over 22 applications within a single platform. Qualys supports and, in some cases, were founding members of many associations around the global (CSA US &Italy, CESIN France, CIIsec in the UK). 

The association with the White Hat Ball is different , it is an opportunity for Qualys to give something back to children that desperately need help and give them somewhere to turn too, and it is our honour to be part of this amazing event bringing the industry together once again.

It has been another challenging year for everybody but even more so for children across the UK, with the support given from Qualys ChildLine in the last 5 years has been able to answer over 10,000 calls, making a potentially life-changing impact. Childline has been running a 24 hour service for 35 years providing support and guidance to children, with events like the White Hat Ball it will be able to keep helping children until every child feels safe.”
