On Saturday, April 28th, President of Axiom Cyber Solutions, Shannon Wilkinson (far left), was selected as the 2018 Las Vegas Women in Technology – Cybersecurity award winner.
“I am incredibly honored to receive the inaugural Las Vegas Women in Technology for Cybersecurity award. Three years ago, I started Axiom Cyber Solutions with the best business partner I could ask for, my husband, Troy. I also want to thank my parents for always supporting me and not batting an eye when I told them that I wanted to run off to join a United Nations peacekeeping mission after I graduated from UNLV. Lastly, I’d like to dedicate the award to the future of technology – our three young daughters who have already started showing an extreme interest in technology and thank the community for their support of education for girls in technology,” said Shannon Wilkinson.
