Full List of OSPAs 2022 Finalists Announced!

Ospas_logoThe panel of 28 independent experts from across the security industry has concluded its judging – which means it’s time to reveal the finalists of the 2022 UK Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs).

The 2022 OSPAs has attracted more submissions and greater diversity than ever before.  The judging panel faced a challenging task narrowing down the entries, to no more than 10 finalists for each category, with many very impressive nominations narrowly missing out.

“This year’s finalists exemplify the values of the OSPAs. Each one of them has demonstrated outstanding performance in an area of security, be it a company, individual, team, initiative, product or service,” said Professor Martin Gill, Founder of the OSPAs. “All those that were nominated should feel very proud that they were put forward for an OSPA; regardless of whether they have reached finalist status. The competition was very tough this year” Gill further added.
