The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has announced that broadcaster and journalist Jane Moore will be the lead speaker and presenter at the annual British Security Awards, which take place in London on Wednesday 10 July at the Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square.
Moore has been a journalist for 38 years and is the longest-running opinion columnist for The Sun, as well as having served as the newspaper’s first-ever female editor of its flagship music column, Bizarre. Moore is a regular on ITV’s Loose Women, and also contributes regularly to BBC1’s Question Time, This Week with Andrew Neill, ITV’s The Agenda and Andrew Marr’s Sunday AM.

Industry exemplars will be recognised in the following categories: Security Personnel, Innovative Security Project, Business of the Year, National and International Partnership, Contribution to the Industry, Apprentice of the Year and Bravery.
There will also be a special Chairman’s Award presented by current incumbent Simon Banks.
The Bravery Awards will be presented by Assistant Chief Constable Sarah Boycott of the West Midlands Police.

We’re delighted that Jane will be speaking at our prestigious awards and look forward to her playing an integral role in this celebration of our industry’s successes and achievements. Our members’ contributions remain at the heart of the Association’s ongoing commitment to be the voice of the professional security industry.
