Award Categories:
Shield Awards are the first awards in the Indian security & safety industry and have recognized the contribution of many “Superstars” in this sector – these are the women and men, who work day and night to provide products, services and even ideas that make us and our communities truly safer.
Like every year, Shield Awards 2019 are focused on recognizing the contribution of individuals, organisations and teams, in inculcating innovation and excellence in their offerings. As a country, India is exposed to multitudinous threats, which require customized and home-made solutions to mitigate them. There is a need to encourage local research and innovation in technology, which is one of the key objectives of Secutech India, SECONA and the Shield Awards. Efforts to design, make or at least, adapt technologies in India often find resonance in the final selection of Shield Awards.
