The world’s global awards for security

The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) recognise and reward companies and individuals across the security sector.

The OSPAs are designed to be both independent and inclusive, providing an opportunity for outstanding performers, whether buyers or suppliers, to be recognised and their success to be celebrated.

The awards scheme began in 2015 with three highly successful events in Norway, Australia and Germany. In 2019 we will hold an OSPAs event in 8 countries; we have added events in the USA, Nigeria, Ghana, UK and Romania.


What makes the OSPAs Unique?

The OSPA are transforming the security world; they are the first and only ‘global’ awards scheme in the Security industry for recognising outstanding performance.

The principles of the OSPAs are that they are independent, credible, respectable and transparent.

The OSPAs bring together all the leading security associations and groups in countries to celebrate the success of security people, teams and companies.

One of the standout features of the OSPAs is that the categories and criteria for the awards have been created following an extensive research project; every country is judged using the same criteria.

Associate yourself with outstanding performance

The 2019 German Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) will take place on the 9th October at Business Risks Summit in Cologne.
