The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs)

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


An event which under normal circumstances would take place alongside our exhibition Securexpo East Africa, the Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) 2021 went  digital!


The criteria for these awards are based on extensive research on key factors that contribute to and characterise outstanding performance. This research can be found here: Aspiring to Excellence,a Security Research Initiative report conducted by Perpetuity Research. The OSPAs are being set-up in collaboration with security associations and groups across many countries.


The presentation of the second annual Kenya Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) took place virtually on Thursday 26th August 2021 as part of an internationally attended online Thought Leadership Webinar – “Thinking about outstanding security in Kenya: what are the barriers to making further improvements?” organised in collaboration with Securexpo East Africa.


OSPA winners were selected by an esteemed panel of industry figures who judged entries using the same criteria which is applied to OSPAs around the world.  Each winner demonstrated that they have performed at an exceptional level and has shown their commitment and outstanding performance within the security sector.

Congratulations to all the finalists and especially the winners on their achievements. Winners summaries can be found here
