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)

Chartered Security Professionals who have retired from their security role may transfer their certification to CSyP (Ret’d) for an annual fee of £40 per year. Their experience and knowledge is very welcome, and they are encouraged to remain as mentors and assessors. CSyP Ret’d are no longer required to complete annual CPD on a compulsory basis, but many voluntarily choose to do so.
