Winners of the 2020 UK OSPAs announced

The OSPAS Stand: 3a/H70
450 attendees celebrated success across the sector

The fourth UK Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) event, sponsored by Innovise, took place at the Royal Lancaster in central London on 26 February. 

Around 450 security professionals gathered to celebrate the very best from across the sector. The OSPAs were presented in 15 categories and hosted by stand-up comedian and renowned Quiz Master Paul Sinha – also known as ‘The Sinnerman’ on ITV1’s The Chase.

OSPAs founder Professor Martin Gill commented ‘The standard of nominations received this year was again extremely high, making the job of selecting the winners particularly challenging for the judging panel. All winners and finalists should feel very proud.’ 

Gill continued: ‘It is important we recognise these achievements. This and showing the world the valuable work that is undertaken by the security sector are central principles of the OSPAs. They are the cornerstone of the growth of the awards across the world.’
