Register of Chartered Security Professionals

Our mission is to maintain internationally recognised standards of competence and commitment in protective security for the public benefit and to certify qualified practitioners in the field as Chartered Security Professionals (CSyP).


The Register of Chartered Security Professionals was established under a Royal Charter issued to the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals in the UK and launched in 2011.

Registrants use CSyP as a post nominal and are called Chartered Security Professionals.

Chartered Security Professionals comply with a Code of Professional Conduct, and complete Continuous Professional Development each year. As strategic thought-leaders in the security sector, they share their knowledge and influence for the benefit of business and public alike.

CSyP Competencies

Every Chartered Security Professional has competence in these five areas:

  • Security Knowledge
  • Practical Application
  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Personal Commitment

They have proven they meet the required standards in all five of these disciplines.

In addition and most vitally each CSyP is also making a strategic impact in their chosen field, and it is the combination of all of the above together with their drive and commitment that sets them apart.

Security Knowledge
Use a combination of specialist and generalist security knowledge and understanding to optimise the employment of existing and emerging methods and technologies
Practical Application
Apply appropriate techniques, methodologies and processes to resolve security and risk related issues. For non-practitioners, this will be directly linked to their role / responsibilities.
Demonstrate effective interpersonal skills
Provide technical and commercial leadership
Personal Commitment
Demonstrate a personal commitment to professional standards, recognising obligations to society, the profession and the environment
