Throughout the 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. Whether these are supported through the ASIS Foundation, our councils and chapters, or partnerships, these awards are all a part of how we give back to the security professional.

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.

Call for Nominations: The U.S. OSPAs are part of a global awards organization currently running in eight countries and designed to recognize and reward outstanding performance within the security sector. Entry to the U.S. OSPAs is open to companies, teams, and individuals who have performed at an exceptional level and you can enter as many categories that are applicable.
