Launch of the Canada Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs)

Mar 24, 2022News

The Outstanding Security Performance Awards are expanding around the world and today the Canada OSPAs have been launched.

The OSPAs are designed to be both independent and inclusive; providing an important opportunity to recognise and celebrate the work of those dedicated companies, individuals and teams who deliver outstanding security products and services.

The judges are nominated by leading security associations and special interest groups to represent them – they all sign up to an ethics policy and agree to mark independently against set criteria and declare any conflict of interest on every mark sheet.

We are delighted to bring the OSPAs to Canada. We have been working closely with the security sector across the region for some time and I am grateful for all the encouragement.  The OSPAs are growing around the world and are seen by many as a most prestigious accolade a security company or professional can be awarded. We look forward to helping to put the spotlight on the outstanding performers in the Canadian security sector.Professor Martin Gill, founder of the OSPAs
