Certificant Spotlight

Jose Barone, PSP

Jose Barone was running errands at his father’s security company when he envisioned a future for himself as a security practitioner. Not wanting to be viewed solely as the “boss’s son,” he decided to develop his skills. He joined ASIS and consulted with peers to determine that the Physical Security Professional (PSP®) certification was right for him.

He now runs his own international consulting bureau.

“My PSP certification helped me to better understand how to assess risks, conduct security assessments, and provide clients with informed recommendations on how to lower their exposure to risks and be better protected.”
