About the US Outstanding Security Performance Awards
Now in its fifth year, the US OSPAs serve to acknowledge the creditable and infinite contributions that companies, initiatives, teams, and individuals make to the security industry and the broader community. The awards recognize exceptional performance in different categories. OSPA winners were selected by a panel of industry judges who are security experts with experience and knowledge of working within the security sector.
About the International Business Awards
The International Business Awards (IBA) are the world’s premier business awards program. The 2020 IBAs received more than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes in virtually every industry and across 63 nations and territories. This year’s competition featured several categories to recognize organizations’ responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Judges for the International Business Awards recognized “two generous projects by Spirion to help protect personal data on work-from-home employees’ computers and to provide meals to restaurant staff during the COVID-19 lockdown.” The judges stated, “the reason for the high score is the creative application of the brand to providing value to sectors that are very much in need. The safety and security issue was perfectly highlighted with solutions provided at no cost for a period of time that companies and employees could actually implement. The selection of the restaurant sector to creatively support was very well done. Excellent campaign.”
