The OSPAs partner with Securex South Africa

1 June 2020 News

The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) has partnered with Securex South Africa and will be launching the 2021 awards during a security thought leadership webinar on 16 July 2020 at 14:30 (South African Standard Time,i.e.,GMT+2).

Currently running in thirteen countries, the OSPAs provide the opportunity to acknowledge and reward companies, individuals, teams and initiatives that make an outstanding contribution in safeguarding people and infrastructure around the world.

The OSPAs are totally independent and have a strict ethics policy for entering, judging and sponsoring. Many of the leading security organisations from South Africa are supporting the awards and have nominated a senior person to represent them on the judging panel.

The launch event is free to attend and will include a panel discussion on ‘COVID-19: where to now for private security in South Africa?’ Panellists will address:

• What are the main challenges facing the security sector as it emerges from lockdown?

• To what extent will changes in public and business expectations influence the types of security that will need to be provided?

• What factors will govern whether security post COVID-19 is a success?

Speakers currently confirmed for the webinar are:

• Andrew Kelly, senior security manager: Global Operations at Coca Cola.

• Lizette Lancaster, project manager: Crime and Justice Information and Analysis Hub at Institute for Security Studies.

• Leonie Mangold, vice chair of ESDA, Special Project Sales Consultant at Powelltronics.

• Jean-Pierre (JP) Smith, councillor, City of Cape Town.

Entry to the 2021 South Africa OSPAs will open later this year and winners will be announced at Securex SA in June 2021. If you would like to learn more about the inaugural 2021 awards, be sure to join the virtual discussion on 16 July.
