Call for Nominations – Southeast Asia Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs)

Jun 1, 2023News

Entry to the inaugural Southeast Asia OSPAs is open!

The OSPAs is an independent global awards scheme, currently running in 29-countries and is supported by leading security associations from across the region.

The OSPAs provide the opportunity to acknowledge and reward companies, individuals, teams and initiatives that make a significant contribution in safeguarding people and infrastructure around the world.

The OSPAs are different to many award schemes, there is a lot of emphasis on being ethical, transparent, and independent. The organisers do not appoint the judges they are nominated by security associations and special interest groups to represent them. The OSPAs seek to create the most level playing field possible in terms of fairness and impartiality, and for this reason are seen by many as one of the most prestigious accolades to be awarded in the security sector around the world. Hear what the OSPAs founder Professor Martin Gill has to say about the awards.

Entry to the Southeast Asia* OSPAs is open through to 29 August 2023; nominations are free to submit in the following categories:

• Outstanding In-house Security Manager / Director
• Outstanding Contract Security Manager / Director
• Outstanding Security Team
• Outstanding Contract Security Company (Guarding) – sponsored by Guardhouse
• Outstanding New Security Product
• Outstanding Security Officer
• Outstanding Female Security Professional
• Outstanding Young Security Professional
• Lifetime Achievement

*Those countries identified by Wikipedia as Southeast Asia are eligible to enter.

The presentation of the first-ever Southeast Asia OSPAs, sponsored by BluOcean Security, will take place on Friday 10th November 2023 and will form part of the ASIS AP Conference in Bangkok. More details will be made available here shortly.
