Each winner demonstrated that they have performed at an exceptional level and has shown their commitment and outstanding performance within the security sector.”
In a triple win which marked a major milestone in the security industry awards, two of Halogen Group’s operating companies, Avert Halogen, its technology solutions company and Academy Halogen, its degree awarding security risk management training institute, were also voted as the outstanding security technology installer/integrator and the outstanding security training initiative, emerging the singular OSPAs’ winners in their areas of specialisation respectively. This year also marks the third in a row that Academy Halogen would cart home the top security training honors.
