Cambridge, UK. 30 November 2016 – Featurespace, a global leader in machine learning fraud prevention using Adaptive Behavioural Analytics, is pleased to announce that CEO Martina King won the Technology & Engineering category, on behalf of Featurespace, at the Variety Catherine Awards.

The inaugural Catherine Awards, held on 29 November 2016, recognise contributions from women in business, their professional achievements and social contributions.
