The Security Institute

The Security Institute is the largest membership organisation for security professionals in the UK, with over 2,300 individual members in 51 countries.  

Membership gives credibility, enhances career prospects, provides a network of excellent contacts, offers mentoring, continual professional development and a wide range of networking opportunities. Members are actively encouraged to become involved in speaking and/or organising regional meetings, alongside the educational and social programme based in London. Our Annual Conference on 3rd October 2017 is our premier event, where 200 members join us at the Honourable Artillery Company for a programme of top-level speaker content and great networking.

Companies are also welcome to show support for our aims, alongside development of their staff, by joining our Corporate Partner scheme launched at IFSEC 2016.

We offer internationally recognised accredited security qualifications via our training partner at levels 3, 5 and 7 by distance learning – no examinations or classroom sessions away from your desk.

Our most recent award was in 2015 when we won a Security Excellence Award for the Best Contribution to Standards in the Security Sector. This was for our work on developing our Manifesto for Professional Security. Collect your copy from us at Stand C1330.

We manage the Register of Chartered Security Professionals (CSyPs) established under Royal Charter and launched in 2011. CSyPs have to prove that they are making a strategic impact, and that they have competencies at the required standard in security knowledge, practical application, leadership, communication skills and that they have a continuing personal commitment.

The Security Institute is committed to raising standards within the security profession, and encourages everyone working in security to actively seek to develop their knowledge, competence and expertise.
