2024 Ireland OSPAs Winners Announced

May 17, 2024News

The third Ireland Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) event, sponsored by CIS Security took place at Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Dublin on 17 May 2024.

Security professionals gathered to celebrate the very best from across the sector with a thought leadership summit and presentation event hosted by the OSPAs founder, Professor Martin Gill.

Commenting on the event Professor Gill said ‘We’re delighted about the level of interest we’ve received in our third year. The OSPAs are dedicated to recognising the entire industry, operating independently, and following strict ethical principles to create a level playing field for everyone involved.’

‘The OSPAs event is a true celebration to acknowledge and recognise the fantastic work that is taking place across the security sector and all those that were nominated should feel very proud” he further said.

An exciting new development for this year is that Ireland winners from all categories (except Lifetime Achievement) will be featured in the first Global OSPAs set to take place in 2025! Winners will automatically qualify for the global competition.

The winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award will be inducted into the newly launched Security Hall of Fame. Learn more about this here.
