Women in Security Awards 2019 – The Security Industry Celebrates Outstanding Achievements

Organised by Professional Security Magazine and Patron, Una Riley, almost 250 security professionals gathered aboard the Dixie Queen riverboat on the River Thames to celebrate and honour the 15 finalists. Una, the first woman to own an NSI approved electronic security company, founded the Awards to raise the profile of women working in what is, a traditionally male dominated sector. This prestigious black tie evening is now firmly established in the industry calendar, attracting sponsorship from thirteen industry organisations.

NSI would like to congratulate all of the winners and finalists selected from over 200 nominations by the pre-eminent judging panel. This year representatives from NSI approved/assessed companies featured as finalists in three of the five award categories:

Security Manager:

Janet Owens, Intu Uxbridge


Sara Stephenson, Sodexo – Winner: Frontline Award

Wendy Tomlinson – CIS Security

Samantha Askew – Sodexo


Carly Taylor – Sodexo

Contribution to Industry:

Amanda McCloskey, CIS Security – Winner: Contribution to Industry Award

Richard Jenkins NSI Chief Executive commented: “We were delighted to once again sponsor the Women in Security Awards, an event we have been closely involved with for a number of years. It was great to see so many members of the security industry gather to celebrate and honour the success of the Award winners and finalists who play such a vital role within our sector and communities.

“This year NSI was pleased to support the event with a complement of attendees from our own team of women in security, including auditors from within guarding services and security systems. Our warmest congratulations to all of this year’s winners and finalists – we wish them continued success in their careers.”
