Annual General Meeting 2021


SYI
We hold a meeting each year which every member is welcome to attend. The meeting is about The Security Institute - what we've achieved in 2020, how your subscription fees have been spent and what our plans are for 2021. Although its a formal meeting, the presentations are interesting and informative and its your opportunity to ask questions and gain a better understanding of all things "Institute". This year for the first time our AGM will be held virtually and we have invested in a new “networking” platform called REMO Conference. The live virtual event and networking platform offers up to 500 of our members at one time to access the virtual event space and “pull up a chair” in a round table, networking format. Our AGM presentations will also be taking place within the REMO conference space, meaning that with ease for our members in mind, you can join in the presentations, with the option to network before and after – all in one place! This year’s voting and director elections will also be happening virtually using a dedicated and trusted AGM online voting system. we will be giving all professional grade members (ASyI, MSyI, FSyI) the chance to cast their vote via Proxy, Online attendance to the AGM, and postal vote.

AGM Calling Notice 2021

Dear Colleagues, It is my pleasure to invite you to join the Chair, Board of Directors and the HQ team at this year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM). This year we return with our first ever digital AGM on 21st April  at 12:30, ensuring that all can safely attend the event during the on-going period of social restrictions. Our AGM is being held for the following purposes:
  • To receive a Financial Report and adopt the Security Institute statement of Accounts and Auditors’ Report for the year ended December 31st 2020.
  • To reappoint Armstrongs as Accountants of the Company and approve their renumeration.
  • To receive a report from the Chair of the Institute.
  • To elect Directors to the main Board.
  • To transact any other competent ordinary business.
This year’s election for Directors to join the Board is one of the most important in recent years as there are in effect eight places, up for election at this AGM. This is due to a number of factors:
  • Our previous Chair Professor Alison Wakefield CSyP FSyI and Angela Vernon Lawson FSyI are retiring from the board after 11 years and six years service respectively creating two vacancies,
  • Stuart Hughes FSyI resigned from the Board during the year and Sarah Austerberry CSyP FSyI was co-opted and now seeks your support for her election
  • Alex Yates FSyI also resigned from the Board during the year, creating a yet unfilled place.
  • Tony Aston FSyI Rtd, Carl Dakin CSyP FSyI, Mahbubal Islam CSyP FSyI and Richard Woolford CSyP FSyI having completed three years on the Board offer themselves for re-election for a further three years.
There is a lot to cram into this AGM. You will hear from our new Chair, Peter Lavery FSyI, on the strategic developments of the Institute as well as the ongoing focus on enhancing our governance and corporate social responsibility (CSR). The directors have been outstanding in delivering their portfolios and the impact has been felt far beyond the membership. It is being noticed across Government and the wider industry as well as other countries, with 41 Corporate Partners now aligned with us and 35 Government Departments offering membership to now over 800 civil servants. At HQ, we have had a busy year. Not only have we expanded by another member of staff, we have also been developing ourselves to be better at our individual roles. On the information assurance/cyber security front, we passed external audits on GDPR compliance and Cyber Essentials Plus. We continue to streamline our operations and align our business processes, risk and resilience with the standards of ISO 9001, for which we were accredited again this past month by our auditors the BSI. As we plan for another busy year, it is good to stop and reflect on our progress to date. We want to recognise the hard work of our volunteers and give you, the engaged membership, a reminder of why you chose to belong to the Security Institute. We welcome and encourage your participation and appreciate the opportunity to respond to your questions. On behalf of the Board and our staff, we look forward to meeting you for an informative AGM hosted on an exciting new social networking platform.   Warmest Regards, Rick Mounfield CSyP FSyI Chief Executive

05.05.21 - Webinar - NBCS – Collaborating to Cut Business Crime


CPD
Date: Wednesday 5th May 2021 Time: 10:00am Details: This webinar is for Security Institute Members and guests About this event...  NBCS – Collaborating to cut Business Crime In this week's webinar we are delighted to be joined by Peter Fisher, the General Manager of the National Business Crime Solution. The National Business Crime Solution is an independent non-profit organisation owned by business for business supporting over 40,000 retail stores across the UK. With the roadmap firmly in place to reopen our economy do we need to think differently about how we protect business against organised crime and travelling offenders? The key to meaningful outcomes when it comes to intelligence sharing is collaboration. Working in isolation with an incident report in so many cases only captures a fraction of crime.  Sharing intelligence and collaborating with other businesses across a variety of sectors, leading to data rich series link investigations increases the likelihood of deeper police investigation and therefore stronger outcomes. Capturing data and information, analysing it and developing informative intelligence products can identify both current and emerging, providing knowledge to support important key tactical and strategic decisions, which can drive cost efficiencies. A great deal of discussion has taken place regarding society’s ‘pent up demand’ for a return to some type of normality to enable them to do the things they did prior to the pandemic. Whilst this is good news for businesses, unfortunately, there will be those in society who will also be welcoming the opportunity to target businesses for criminal purposes. Security professionals recognise the important role intelligence plays in deploying the right assets, in the right place, at the right time. Are we making the best use of intelligence to achieve this in the coming weeks and months?
