Article of the Year Award
With so many excellent security-related articles published in City Security magazine and on our website, we feel that the authors should be recognised for their outstanding contribution to making us and the corporate world more security aware. Therefore, we are delighted to announce the City Security Article of the Year Award 2020 supported by the City of London Crime Prevention Association and the University of St Andrews.
Selecting the finalists
The finalists for the City Security magazine Article of the Year Award 2020 were selected from articles published in the last twelve months’ editions (Autumn & Winter 2019 and Spring & Summer 2020) and then subsequently published online on the citysecuritymagazine.com website.
For each edition, the top three articles were selected as finalists, based on the number of views for each article, since publication online, until 14th November 2020 By selecting three articles per edition, it means the articles from earlier editions do not have an unfair advantage of being online longer.
