26th February 2020, saw Mitie Security nominated at the Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs), hosted at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London. This prestigious event celebrates the fantastic work in the security industry, celebrating individual and team successes across a range of categories.

Going into the event, Mitie Security overall had an amazing 17 nominations across 9 unique categories. The OSPAs are renowned for having an extremely high calibre of entries, so it is always a competitive set of awards and to achieve such a high number of nominations is a statement in itself. 

By the end of the evening, we had come away with a fantastic 5 award wins, including the big one of the night, Outstanding Contract Security Company. 

One victory in particular was particularly special for our Intelligence team, with our fantastic and unique M&S Security Operations Centre (SOC) team winning the ‘Outstanding Security Team’ award. The M&S SOC was a truly transformational security solution, bringing together a previously siloed approach and delivering actionable intelligence to deliver the most efficient use of resources. With wide ranging backgrounds, the team bring together their expertise to deliver an industry leading solution to M&S.

Martin Gill, OSPAs founder, stated that the standard of entries this year was extremely high, so to win five awards is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole Mitie Security team, and should be considered a fantastic achievement.

Jason Towse, Managing Director, Business Services, was delighted with the success on the night: 

“I’m incredibly proud and want to congratulate all our deserving Mitie OSPA winners and nominees. Just to be nominated highlights security excellence, but to win five awards is true testament to the expertise and dedication of our amazing people at Mitie. I’ve long believed that we have the best intelligence and technology in the sector and seeing this recognised is a real accomplishment.”
