Companies and individuals involved in the Australian security industry will be recognised for their hard work, excellence and innovation on a national and international stage, at the 2017 Security Awards.

The coveted Australian Security Industry Awards for Excellence is an initiative formed 22 years ago by the Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL). In 2015,  ASIAL partnered with World Excellence Awards to bring the global Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) program to Australia for the first time.

Nominations for this year’s awards are now open until 1 September 2017. Recipients of awards will be presented at a prestigious awards ceremony and dinner to be held on 19 October 2017 at Crown Melbourne. Nominate your yourself, your business or your colleagues today!
