Women Leaders winner Elizabeth Sheldon was celebrated for her impressive achievements in the male-dominated field of science and technology, reports the MKFM website.
Judges described the chief executive of Evidence Talks as a "stand-out candidate" with a "fascinating career route” when presenting her with the award at Hilton London Bankside.
They added: "She works tirelessly to help keep us safe, perhaps in a way we don't always see in terms of cyber and security."
Elizabeth said: "I am honoured and humbled to have won this prestigious award. There was an amazing selection of women for this category. It is quite unusual to find a woman in the world of cyber security in the United Kingdom.
"I sit on the board of the Aerospace Defence Security and Space board and there are 50 directors with just three women. This is something we need to work on.
"The number of women running businesses in the security sector are still in the minority and we are working hard encourage and nurture more women in this area to ensure this number continues to grow."
Evidence Talks, based in Fox Milne, is committed to assisting Law Enforcement Officers and corporate security staff around the world fight cyber-crime.
