SEC Named Finalist in Outstanding Security Performance Awards

August 10, 2021 – The Security Executive Council (SEC) has been selected as a finalist in the 2021 U.S. Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs). The SEC was nominated in the Outstanding Security Consultant category.

Now in their sixth year, the OSPAs recognize and reward companies and individuals across the security sector. The criteria for these awards are based on extensive research on key factors that contribute to and characterize outstanding performance.

“Many thanks to the OSPA judges for this recognition,” said Bob Hayes, Managing Director of the SEC. “The credit really goes to our subject matter experts and staff. These folks – most of whom are former CSOs themselves - are helping security leaders and programs become more successful every day using our research findings. And many thanks as well to our forward-thinking security leader clients, who trust us to collaborate with them to move toward their goals.”

OSPA winners will be revealed on September 23 at a virtual interactive awards gallery.
