ASIS International Announces 2010 Professional Certification Board

Alexandria, Va 2010-01-04

ASIS International, the largest organization for security management professionals worldwide, is pleased to announce the 2010 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).

“As threats against people, property and information emerge and evolve, global organizations in private and public sectors seek to employ credible, highly skilled security practitioners to preserve and protect their assets,” says Patrick C. Bishop, CPP, the new PCB president. “ASIS board certification is an effective means by which an employer or client can identify a qualified practitioner. The PCB will continue its role in establishing ASIS certifications as professional competency standards.”

Bishop is the general manager of Profile Group of Companies, a leading Canadian-based, risk-management solutions provider that serves industries in the public and private sector.  He has more than 40 years experience in various professional disciplines, including military police security, investigation and intelligence, corporate security management, security consulting, executive protection and specification design and development.
