Winners of the 2021 OSPAs Announced
The first-ever virtual UK Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) event took place on 25th February 2021.
Hundreds of security professionals tuned in to the live-streamed virtual award ceremony to celebrate the best of the best from across the sector. This year, once again, companies, initiatives, technologies, individuals and teams were honoured in sixteen categories for their outstanding contribution to the security industry and in keeping us all safe.
OSPAs founder Professor Martin Gill said: “The Security sector can feel very proud; it has not only stepped up to the mark during these unusual times but has gone above and beyond – which is evidenced by all of the finalists and especially the winners.”
The Logosoft team send congratulations to all winners, but we are particularly thrilled to see some of our customers presented with awards. We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to everyone that contributes to keeping us safe.
