The iNetwork Innovation Awards 2020 were postponed until early this year and they were worth waiting for!  We were finalists in not one, not two but three categories; Effective Information Sharing and Security, iStandUK and COVID-19 Response Recognition.  We are ecstatic to be recognised in all of these categories and even more so to be judged winners for the second year in a row of the Effective Information Sharing and Security Award 2020.  All award nominees, finalists and winners have done some amazing work throughout 2020 and we couldn’t be more proud to be in there company.  You can view the awards ceremony here.
