The quest has begun to find the very best from within the security sector – from ground-breaking technology to companies, individuals and entrepreneurs.

The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) present an opportunity to acknowledge role models and thought leaders who have made a significant contribution in making a difference to the future of security.

Professor Martin Gill, founder of the awards said “I encourage everyone working in the sector to submit at least one nomination; security too often operates under the radar and the OSPAs provide the opportunity to highlight and promote the pioneering work that is being carried out.
