The Register of Chartered Security Professionals (RCSP) is to hold a dinner event at the House of Commons this March to celebrate the works of the RSCP and the standards the organisation promotes.
The dinner, supported by international risk and security specialist Pilgrims Group Limited, highlights the RCSP’s role as the recognised standard for security professionals, alongside other chartered professions, and will be hosted by Lord Carlile, CBE QC, Chairman of the Chartered Security Professionals Registration Authority.
The RCSP was set up in 2011 by The Security Institute and the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals to recognise and maintain the highest standards and proficiency for security practitioners. Professionals on the Register are entitled to use the post nominal CSyP after their names.
Pilgrims Director of Business Development, Peter Kaye, Chartered Security Professional (CSyP) and Fellow of the Security Institute (FSyI), was one of 12 senior security professionals asked to become assessors for the RCSP registration programme in 2011. Since then, over 50 professionals have been assessed and awarded CSyP status. “The work of the RCSP and the Security Institute is vital in achieving security industry standards equal to those of other chartered professions, such as accountancy or architecture,” says Kaye. “Although this is still a young body, the enthusiasm with which my fellow security professionals have embraced the CSyP status, with many more applicants in the pipeline, shows that the desire for exemplary standards in the security industry among its practitioners is strong.”
Pilgrims Managing Director, Bill Freear, adds: “It is a great privilege to be supporting the RCSP dinner at the House of Commons. The organisation reflects Pilgrims own aims to promote ‘gold level standards’ and I hope it will highlight to our legislators and officials the dedication this industry has to the highest levels of professionalism.”
