Chartered Security Professional

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.

Being admitted to the Register and becoming a CSyP is a means of being recognised and continuing to represent the highest standards and ongoing proficiency. It is the gold standard of competence in security.

CSyPs have to comply with a Code of Conduct, a Professional Disciplinary Code, and also complete Continuous Professional Development each year.

Applications to the Register are managed by the Security Institute on behalf of the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals. Licenced organisations are the Security Institute and ASIS UK Chapter 208 who can both mentor and support CSyP applicants.

The Register of Chartered Security Professionals is recognised across the UK, including the Association of Security Consultants (ASC), International Professional Security Association (IPSA) and the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI).

Register for CSyP


All applications are handled electronically – either submit your application by email or save your files to an iCloud storage and notify the RCSP Manager.

Before you submit your application, please make sure you that you have read and are able to comply with the Code of Conduct.

You should think about including examples of your work, letters of support, awards, training courses, published articles or presentations – anything which you believe will help the assessors understand the unique skill set you bring to the Register, and the strategic level at which you work.

Our panel of mentors would be happy to advise and help you prepare for application – contact us if you would like to speak to some.

Bill Stables CSyP, FCO

The independent accreditation implied by attaining Chartered status in any profession is fundamental; when you add potential risk to life activity it becomes a vital.  I was keen to have this level of qualification so it provided an externally audited record of my experience.  In addition it encourages CPD and prevents me becoming static.


Bob Boote CSyP, Independent Consultant

I found the application process to be very positive and very beneficial to my personal development.

Be 100% honest on your application as the process is thorough and the award of CSyP a prestigious accolade.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to belong to the Institute to apply?

No, the Register of Chartered Security Professionals is open to everyone. No further membership is needed, although belonging to the Institute or other reputable security organisation will support an application.


I’m not sure if my qualifications count – how can I check?

Please call us to discuss, or submit your application as an Expression of Interest. This will allow us to give you some useful written feedback and start the assessment process.


Most of my evidence is client specific and I can’t share it. What can I do?

All the assessors who see your application are themselves CSyPs and therefore bound by the Professional Code of Ethics. Anything you submit will not be discussed outside of processing your application, and will be destroyed once your application process has completed. Please don’t jeopardise your clients or your integrity, but if you can share examples of the type of work you do and the level at which you work that is really useful. You will have an opportunity to discuss this further at your professional interview.


How long does an application take?

It varies depending on the calibre of the application you submit (the more thorough it is, the easier it is for us to process) also on whether you make a Standard (ie. With a degree) or Individual application. Finally, we need to make sure we have the right assessors available for you when it is time for your professional interview particularly if you have a specialist security role, so that we can be fair and understand the points you are making. The quickest turnaround time has been 4 weeks, the longest over a year.


What’s the difference between being a Fellow of the Institute and a CSyP?

Both are prestigious titles and recognised in security circles as being a benchmark of professionalism.

Fellowship of the Institute gives you access to all the benefits that membership of an organisation brings, such as a range of CPD opportunities, professional development support, networking, news etc. CSyP is an independent verification of your competency skill set and confirms that you are making a strategic impact in your role. It is more like a qualification. Most CSyPs choose to also have Fellowship.
