As part of our commitment to supporting professionalism in the industry, Pilgrims sponsored the Chartered Security Professionals’ annual black tie dinner and award ceremony, held in London earlier this month.


The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals and the Security Institute have developed a register for security professionals as a means of recognising and maintaining high standards and ongoing proficiency for individuals. Called the Register of Chartered Security Professionals, a member (the Registrant) is known as a Chartered Security Professional (CsyP). Registrants are required to comply with a Code of Conduct, a professional disciplinary code, and must also complete continuous professional development each year.

The event marked the continuing progress of the Register of Chartered Security Professionals in the superb surroundings of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, based in London’s legal quarter. The evening included guest speaker Barra McGrory QC, the Director of Public Prosecutions for Northern Ireland, and presentations were made to the latest Chartered Security Professionals.

Lord Carlile of Berriew CBE QC, Patron of The Security Institute and Chairman of the Chartered Security Professional Registration Authority, was host for the evening.

Peter Kaye, Pilgrims Group Director of Business Development, Chartered Security Professional (CSyP) and a Main Board Director of The Security Institute said: “ Pilgrims is again proud to sponsor the Register of Chartered Security Professionals Dinner. We support this celebration of the ‘gold standard’ Register in the security industry, so ably managed by The Security Institute on behalf of the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals, which, in our experience, is growing in recognition and popularity both at home and abroad in the wider international community. Pilgrims takes great pleasure in congratulating the recipients of their entry into the Register.”
