Winners announced for Security Excellence Awards 2023

The Security Excellence Awards honour the companies, teams and individuals leading the way in cybersecurity.

More than any other event, winners at the Security Excellence Awards leave knowing they are keeping the rest of the industry moving.

But it wasn't until the night itself that we found out who the winners were.

Arriving at the fabulous 1 Moorgate Place, guests were greeted with a drinks reception - meeting and greeting old friends and new - before taking their seats for a lavish meal.
