Aotea Security, Winner Of The 2023 New Zealand OSPA Outstanding Security Partnership Award

The Outstanding Security Performance Awards are held worldwide to recognise and reward companies, people and innovation across the security sector.

Aotea Security joined more than one hundred security professionals for a night to remember at the second New Zealand Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPA's) held at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron on Friday, the 14th of April.

Aotea Security was proud to be awarded alongside IAG Insurance and Repairhub an Outstanding Security Partnership award. The summary of this award is as follows:

The partnership formed between IAG Insurance, Repairhub and Aotea Security is a clear demonstration of how three separate entities can work collaboratively and cohesively with each other; drawing on their own specialist skillset to achieve one common purpose, to sustainably keep people information and assets safe and protected. From the early stages of the partnership there was a clear strategy to co-design and delivery a range of benefits to achieve consistency and replication across all Repairhub sites in reaching a standardised operating model. Judges felt that the nomination reflected a strong commitment from multiple parties collaborating for mutually beneficial outcomes. - OSPA

Repairhub is a rapidly expanding paint/panel repair shop focused on providing quality outcomes for its customers. With a growing presence across both the North and South island, it became apparent the requirement for a robust security model/overlay across their network. To deliver this, a partnership between IAG InsuranceRepairhub and Aotea Security was formed to deliver a co-designed overlay that could be replicated across all new Repairhub sites.

This system created as a result of this partnership provides a safe work environment for all Repairhub employees as well as the ability to seamlessly transition between sites across the country with an understanding of all security operating models.

We are proud of the Aotea Security teams regionally that make things happen, and Aotea Security is honoured to have received this award and looks forward to what it may bring in the future.
