The winners of the 2021 India Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) were announced on Tuesday 21st December.
During a virtual awards ceremony global representatives from across the security sector tuned in live to celebrate the outstanding achievements of this year’s finalists and winners of the India OSPAs.
For the second year, the OSPAs partnered with BW Businessworld to deliver a Security Summit which preceded the awards ceremony and tackled a diverse range of issues impacting on the delivery of security in India. The summit programme included keynote speeches and panel discussions.
The winners were selected by an independent judging panel who were nominated by the leading security associations in India – all of whom marked to a published ethics policy, declaring any conflict of interest on every mark sheet.
The judges participated in the event and assisted in announcing the eleven category winners to a deserving array of organisations and individuals.
