The Security Institute has welcomed Zaun, the perimeter fencing and security specialist, as a corporate partner of the organisation. Institute chairman Garry Evanson CSyP has officially presented Zaun with its certificate of membership to signify the commitment Zaun has to the Institute and, indeed, the security industry as a whole.

Evanson commented: “Corporate partnership is a growing initiative for security businesses who wish to join our determined drive to promote the highest possible standards of integrity and professional competence in the industry. We’re delighted to welcome Zaun as a corporate partner.”

Zaun’s sales and marketing director Chris Plimley responded: “Zaun supports The Security Institute’s mission to deliver quality to the sector, value to organisations and confidence to society. Becoming a corporate partner is a public declaration of our support and gives us a seat at the Institute’s highest table to work together on supporting that core mission.”

The Security Institute is a not-for-profit organisation that was established in 1999 for the benefit of individuals working in the security sector. It’s the UK’s largest professional membership body for security professionals.

The Institute actively and continually promotes the art and science of security management and works to drive standards, educate and spread Best Practice across the security sector – a sector responsible for the safety of much of the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure.

Importantly, the Institute is responsible for managing and operating the Register of Chartered Security Professionals on behalf of The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals.
