Oct 18, 2018News

For the fourth year running, the Australian OSPAs partnered with ASIAL’s Security Awards for Excellence to recognise and reward companies, teams and individuals who have performed at an exceptional level within the security sector. The competition this year was tough, winners and runners up were selected by a judging panel of esteemed security professionals.

Winners were unveiled at a prestigious Awards Ceremony and Dinner on 18th October at Sydney’s Doltone House Hyde Park, where security professionals gathered to celebrate outstanding performance.

Professor Martin Gill, founder of the Outstanding Security Performance Awards, comments: “It has been a great night celebrating the achievements of the many worthy winners. The judges were impressed by the quality of entries and the winners should feel very proud.  Well done to the Australian security sector and especially to the OSPA winners.”
