Earlier this month, Dr Peter Speight CSyP became the first person to gain admittance to the Register of Chartered Security Professionals via the ASIS UK route.
ASIS International’s UK Chapter held its Summer Meeting in central London on 12 June, the event being attended by 147 members and guests.
At that gathering, Dr Peter Speight CSyP – director of security risk management at Securitas Security Services UK – became the first person to gain admittance to the Register of Chartered Security Professionals via the ASIS UK route.
Peter received his CSyP tie and lapel pin from Sharon Williams CSyP, who is the ASIS UK Chapter’s representative on the Chartered Security Professionals Registration Authority.
This development is very significant because, although there are already 15 ASIS members who have achieved CSyP status (about a third of the total cohort to date), Peter is the first to achieve this via ASIS UK (who became the second licensee of the register earlier this year alongside The Security Institute).
Most of the ASIS CSyPs also hold the CPP certification, which further demonstrates the value of CPP.
If you’re interested in becoming a CSyP, please contact the ASIS UK office via e-mail at: email@example.com
