The finalists of the 2018 US Outstanding Security Performance Awards have been announced.
Now in their third year, the US OSPAs are part of a global awards scheme to recognise and reward companies, teams and individuals who have performed at an exceptional level within the security sector.
“These awards are a fantastic way to showcase and recognise the truly exceptional contribution that is made by the security sector in safeguarding people, property and assets”, commented Professor Martin Gill, founder of the OSPAs. “Our robust judging process ensures that those selected are truly outstanding and should be rightly proud of their achievement.”
Winners will be announced at a networking lunch to be held on Monday, 24th September at GSX 2018 (Global Security Exchange) in Las Vegas where 2,500+ security professionals are expected to attend.
