UK OSPAs finalists

Here are the finalists for the 2021 UK’s Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs), after the first phase of the judging. Winners will be named at the free to attend virtual award show, sponsored by TEAM Software, on Thursday, February 25, at 3:30pm.

The 16 awards cover companies, individuals, teams, products and initiatives. The founder of the OSPAs, Prof Martin Gill of consultancy Perpetuity, pictured, says: “The OSPAs are growing year on year and really have become the ultimate accolade for everyone working in security, whether a buyer or supplier. I would like to thank everyone who entered for making this a bumper year. With such stiff competition, I can honestly say that every finalist is a winner.”
