At the organisation’s Annual Conference 2017, held on Tuesday 3 October in central London, The Security Institute announced that it has now entered into a Group Membership arrangement with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the UK’s specialist aviation regulator.
The scheme will enable security specialists within the CAA’s Aviation Security Directorate to become members of the Institute and obtain professional membership status. The new arrangement will enable around 50 members of the CAA’s security team to join the Institute.
Peter Drissell, the CAA’s director of aviation security, stated: “The CAA is delighted to enter into this partnership with The Security Institute which will ensure that our team of security professionals remains up-to-date with the latest industry advancements and has the opportunity for ongoing development.”
Andrew Nicholls, deputy chairman of The Security Institute, added: “We’re delighted to be able to make this announcement at our Annual Conference as it brings together several weeks of discussion. We are very much looking forward to working with the CAA in the future.”
The Security Institute is the UK’s largest professional membership body for security professionals with over 2,500 members. Since 2000, the Institute has been working to promote the highest possible standards of integrity and professional competence in the business of security.
Membership of The Security Institute affords credibility, enhances career prospects, provides a network of excellent contacts and offers Continuing Professional Development opportunities as well as a wide range of networking events throughout the calendar year.
