David Clark CPP PCI PSP, the former Chair of the Security Commonwealth (and of the ASIS International UK Chapter) died suddenly and unexpectedly in 2019 at the age of 49.
Dave was a huge figure in the sector both professionally and personally. A friend and mentor to many and a champion of diversity, and inclusion, he left a void that will not be filled easily.
To honour his impact on the profession, the Security Commonwealth launched the Dave Clark Award for Exceptional Contribution to the UK Security Industry. The inaugural presentation took place at CONSEC in October.
The Winner was the Inclusive Security Special Interest Group (ISSIG) from the Security Institute, with the OSPAs being Highly Commended. Les Allan of AUCSO and ProtectED, were both commended.
