The Imbert Prize

The ASC is committed to encouraging the development of ideas and best practice in the advancement of risk and security management throughout the UK and each year award an annual prize to worthy recipients in industry, academia and business.  The Prize is named after one of our Patrons, Lord Imbert of New Romney CVO QPM JP, former Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and Lord Lieutenant of Greater London who sadly passed away in 2017.

The Imbert 'Dissertation' Prize.  An award of a year's free membership to the ASC is given to the author of a selected dissertation as submitted by an academic institution providing security courses in higher education.  Nominated dissertations are submitted by faculty staff and must cover a topic that is relevant to consultancy in security. Current academic institutions invited to participate in the award scheme include Cranfield University, Loughborough University, Portsmouth and Buckinghamshire New University.

Each dissertation is reviewed by an independent award panel comprising of members and industry practitioners as appointed by the ASC Board.  In 2019, the judging panel decided to award 3 shortlisted candidates; Alice Coyte, Kurt Steiner (Winner) and Jamie Shaw

All finalists were invited along with one other of their proposers to the annual Imbert Prize dinner at the house of Lords where the awards were presented.  All nominees received a plaque acknowledging their dissertations
