Introducing the Associate Protection Professional (APP)

The Associate Protection Professional (APP) designation is intended for those with 1-4 years of security management experience. The exam will measure the professional’s knowledge of security management fundamentals, business operations, risk management, and response management. 

ASIS will beta test the new exam between 11 December and 15 January (prior to its official launch in 2019) to ensure the exam is performing properly and to set a passing score. If you are interested in applying to take the beta exam, there will be a two- to three-month delay in receiving the results. Because of this, we are offering a discount for those who apply to take the beta exam – only $100 for both members and nonmembers.

Certificant Spotlight

Jeff Sieben, CPP

Sieben cites earning his certification as a pivotal moment in his career. Before earning his certification, he felt he had knowledge to share—but he had a hard time getting his voice heard.

“I had experience and a résumé to prove it, but my experience needed validation. After I earned my CPP, the CEO trusted me, and the trust continued from there.”

In This Issue: Smarter Structures, Safer Spaces

​Internet giant Google is known to build impressive campuses and office spaces for its workers. No exception is its Wharf 7 office in New South Wales, Australia, where it moved a number of employees when the company experienced a boom in growth in 2012.

The building was constructed to "encourage the interaction and collaboration that is key to the innovation Google promotes," IDEA Awards, an interior design awards program, states on its website. A gaming room, café, bridges, and walkways all contribute to the collaborative look and feel of the building.
