The Register of Chartered Security Professionals is a professional register launched in 2011, mandated in the Royal Charter granted to the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals in 2010. The Register is administered by the Security Institute on behalf of the WCoSP.
The mission of the Register is to maintain internationally recognised standards of competence and commitment in protective security for the public benefit and to certify qualified practitioners in the field as Chartered Security Professionals.
Chartered Security Professionals are required to demonstrate five core competency skill sets – security knowledge, practical application, communication, leading and professional commitment. CSyPs also need to be individually making a strategic impact to the development of security practice and to always act with integrity.
The guest speaker for the evening was Vincent Devine who was appointed Government Chief Security Officer and Head of the Government Security Function in December 2021 and highlighted his strategic business priorities in terms of cyber security, supply chain security and personnel security.
Since its launch in 2011 there have been 423 applications with 260 being successfully admitted. Whilst the majority are based in the UK, there are now also CSyPs in Albania, Australia, Canada, Czechia, China, Dominican Republic, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Ivory Coast, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Panama, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands, the UAE and the USA.
