A global panel of Cyber Security professionals have reviewed a record number of Cyber OSPA nominations from around the world, and the list of finalists have been announced.

The Cyber OSPAs were launched in 2021 to recognise and reward companies, teams, individuals, products and initiatives across the cyber security sector globally. The Cyber OSPAs are designed to be both independent and inclusive, providing an opportunity for outstanding performers, whether buyers or suppliers, to be recognised and their success to be celebrated.
