Following the success of last year, Acquisition International are proud to once again host the 2020 Cyber Security Awards. With more than half of UK businesses being reported for cyber-attacks in 2019, we believe now more than ever it is essential for the very best of the industry to be able to showcase their last 12 months of work and any future plans they may have.
As the industry continues to grow and expand, the 2020 Cyber Security Awards will aim to recognise the upcoming innovations of the world’s most dedicated and talented experts. Our awards are strictly merit-driven, with the process aiming to reward the parties based on their excellence demonstrated in the industry rather than just focusing on the number of votes a company has received.
Here at Acquisition International, we welcome nominations from all businesses regardless of their size. This in turn, allows us to gain a wider range of candidates who have much to offer to the industry. Once a firm goes on to accept the nomination, they are carefully assessed by our in-house research team here at Acquisition International.
Winning an award provides you with the evidence you need to prove that beyond doubt, you stand out from the crowd. Enhancing your victory with visual reminders, allows for the promotion of your brand to extend even further, which in turn can attract new employees and new clients looking to work with the best in the industry. Receiving third-party recognition helps to boost the reputation of your brand and the trust in the products and services you offer.
Of course, you are welcome to make sure of the Acquisition International brand and reach out to an entirely new market place!
Below is the previous year’s annual celebratory magazine, this will allow you to see our in-house branding style and a full list of the previous year’s winners.
