Certified Protection Professional (CPPⓇ)
The Certified Protection Professional (CPP) is considered the "gold standard" for security management professionals. This certification validates your knowledge in all areas of security management. Eligibility requirements include 5-7 years of security experience and 3 years in responsible charge of a security function.
Associate Protection Professional (APP)
The Associate Protection Professional (APP) designation provides the first "rung" on the security manager's career ladder. It is for those with 1-3 years of security management experience and measures the professional’s knowledge of security management fundamentals, business operations, risk management, and response management.
*The APP Certification was supported in part by a grant from the ASIS Foundation.
Professional Certified Investigator (PCIⓇ)
The Professional Certified Investigator (PCI) certification provides demonstrable proof of an individual's knowledge and experience in case management, evidence collection, and preparation of reports and testimony to substantiate findings. Requirements include 3-5 years of investigations experience, with at least two years in case management.
Physical Security Professional (PSPⓇ)
The Physical Security Professional (PSP) demonstrates your knowledge in physical security assessments, application, design, and integration of physical security systems, and implementation of security measures. Eligibility requirements include 3-5 years of experience in the physical security field.
Kevin Smith transitioned into a security management career after seven years in law enforcement. Now an enterprise security specialist for a utilities provider in Colorado, he finds himself drawn to the security function’s ability to create positive outcomes for an organization—from top to bottom.
“Part of the value of becoming certified is the invaluable knowledge you gain from your study and preparations. My organization supported me in pursuing my certifications because they understand the value this knowledge brings to the organization.”

Insider Threat: The Shift from Report to Support
By Megan Gates
Insider threat incidents are more common than one might think. A recent assessment by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) found that more than 2 million people report some type of workplace violence each year, with approximately 25 percent of workplace violence going unreported.
And the reasons why an insider might be compelled to lash out at work have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
