Baroness Henig

SecuriGroup Director Baroness Ruth Henig CBE recently received another impressive accolade in an increasing list of awards, Vigilance can report.

This year the award panel decided that two candidates should jointly receive the award for their exceptional contributions to the security industry with Baroness Ruth Henig sharing the award with Don Randall MBE, head of security to the Bank of England.  It was judged that Baroness Henig’s significant contribution to the industry as Chair of the Security Industry Authority in overseeing the Government’s move towards a new fit-for-purpose regulatory regime made her an outstanding candidate.

Nominated by three of the leading professional bodies, Baroness Henig described the award as “a great honour”.  She was particularly pleased to have won the support of The Security Institute, the British Security Industry Association and the International Professional Security Association.

As the SIA Chair between 2007 and 2013, Baroness Henig worked tirelessly to ensure that the SIA both operated as an efficient and effective regulator and that it had the full support, as far as possible, of the industry.  Baroness Henig continues to work to drive up standards across the industry by helping to build a strong and unified voice to lobby government, and also as a non-executive director with award-winning security firm SecuriGroup.

The Association of Security Consultant’s Award, part of the Imbert Prize named after the former Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and the Lord Lieutenant of Greater London, Peter Imbert is presented annually to the person making the most notable contribution in the security industry in the preceding year. Nominations are made by four of the leading professional bodies of the security industry and judged by the ASC award panel.
