Entry process now open for UK Outstanding Security Performance Awards 2021
01 July 2020
THE QUEST has begun to find the very best practitioners, initiatives, projects and solutions within the security business sector as, once again, the Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) present an opportunity to acknowledge role models and thought leaders who’ve contributed significantly when it comes to making a difference to the future of security.
The OSPAs is an independent global awards scheme currently running in no less than 13 countries. The scheme is designed to be inclusive, providing an opportunity for outstanding performers to be recognised and their success to be celebrated.
Professor Martin Gill CSyP FSyI (pictured, right), founder of the OSPAs and director of Perpetuity Research, explained: “I encourage everyone working in the sector to submit at least one nomination. All-too-often, security operates under the radar. The OSPAs provide the opportunity to highlight and promote the pioneering work that’s being carried out.”

*Outstanding In-House Security Manager/Director
