ASIS International, the preeminent organization for security management professionals worldwide, is pleased to announce the 2009 Professional Certification Board (PCB). This group is dedicated to the oversight of ASIS’ three internationally accredited professional designations: the Certified Protection Professional (CPP), the Professional Certified Investigator (PCI) and the Physical Security Professional (PSP).
“During challenging economic times, ASIS offers value to individuals and their organizations through its certification programs,” says Darryl Branham, CPP, president of the ASIS International Professional Certification Board. “ASIS-certified security practitioners differentiate themselves from others in the industry, while employers can ensure their security professionals are competent on an initial and ongoing basis.”
