FULTON, MD – The NYX Awards winners for the Season 1 cycle has been revealed to the public by the International Awards Associate (IAA) for public viewing! The NYX Awards have received well over 1,200 entries from across the globe and is the leading award program to honor and celebrate creative individuals and communication design experts.
This year, RackTop Systems secured the Silveraward in the NYX Marcom awards program for its video series, It’s Your Data. Featuring Seth Adam Kallick of Baltimore, the campaign humanizes the concept of “Data” to illustrate complex modern cyber problems in amusing and relatable ways. The current volume addresses some of the biggest data security and cyber risk issues in the modern threat landscape. For example, Medical Records speaks to patient data being the target of ransomware and the challenges admins face when attempting to negotiate recovery of data after it’s been stolen. Intervention makes light of lax data security measures. Crazy Wall illuminates the fact that cyber attacks are often connected in unexpected ways. And finally, Snapshots exposes the fact that the most common ransomware recovery strategy is flawed.
“The recognition of a Silver NYX Award for Marketing Effectiveness as a Video Campaign demonstrates our team’s success in simplifying complex cyber problems in memorable ways,” says Laura Bednash, VP of Marketing at RackTop. “It’s a huge honor for RackTop as well as our production company, Shine Creative.”
