Leaders in Security + Technology award

The Award

Security is often thankless work. Stratoscope’s L.I.S.T. Award is here to change that. This award acknowledges the “Leaders In Security + Technology” who apply their training to make sure every person and event is safe and secure. While we would be lost without our incredible CSOs and Directors, the world often forgets the industry’s frontline staff. These champions are our boots on the ground, ensuring everyone is safe from real-life harm and threats. It’s time we call them out and celebrate them for their hard work and dedication.
