Awards at GSX

Honoring the Best in Security

Each year, ASIS International provides individuals and groups the chance to be recognized for their achievements or gain access to opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have. Supported through our councils, chapters, and partnerships, these awards are part of how we distinguish those that give back to the security profession and celebrate their accomplishments.

Outstanding Security Performance Awards

The OSPAs recognize and reward companies and individuals across the security sector. They are designed to be both independent and inclusive, providing an opportunity for outstanding performers, whether buyers or suppliers, to be recognized and their success to be celebrated.

Women in Security Global Council Karen Marquez Honors Award

This award honors a female security professional who has consistently worked for the betterment of the security industry over an extended period. Nominees should be able to demonstrate how they have supported, promoted, and inspired other women in our industry to be exceptional leaders.

Nominees must possess a minimum of 15 years’ experience in the security industry or 10 years’ experience or equivalent with an ASIS Certification.
