"Our finalists and winners are true representatives of outstanding practice in the security industry,” said Professor Martin Gill, founder of the OSPAs. “The security industry needs to celebrate these achievements and show the world the valuable work that is done, and the OSPAs — building on success in other countries — is emerging as a high profile part of that process,” he said.
