Security World Is Not Good Enough In Identifying How Good It Is: Professor Martin Gill
As a matter of fact, in the security segment, it is very critical to get recognized and some of the premium qualities that a security professional individual or entity must adhere to are transparency, credibility and openness in their process or methods of operations: Martin Gill
At the outset, I thank Dr. Batra of BW Businessworld for taking up this initiative to create this virtual platform for OSPAs and I am thrilled and excited to communicate with a whole panel of exciting industry experts who will be joining us today. Many years ago, when we first thought about implementing security, we went through a whole range of ideas on how things can be implemented in a sustainable manner, mostly research projects where identified which enabled us to categorize who is the best service provider in the segment. As a matter of fact, in the security segment, it is very critical to get recognised and some of the premium qualities that a security professional individual or entity must adhere to are transparency, credibility and openness in their process or methods of operations. OSPA’s started in Norway and then continued to expand its work in America, Germany and other places and today it works across the world and here we are today organising the first Indian OSPAs. When any entries that we judged had cognitive interest, we focussed in being as fairer as possible and ethical too. In the Indian OSPAs it is not only about being the finalists but the jury needs to justify why a particular stakeholder is being chosen as a finalists and I take immense pride in saying that peers across the world are waiting eagerly to witness who is the Indian winner of OSPAs and is a much valuable accolade.
The security world is not very good at how good it is. It does an astounding job in protecting the city, public, government or enterprise business as a part of its responsibility or job. Today in the Indian OSPAs organised by BW Businessworld, we are going to witness some of the best thought-leaderships delivering in the platform, followed by an awards program to recognize the incredible efforts the industry shows in manning our lives for security and surveillance.
