The Institute’s validation process has been developed by industry professionals from a range of security backgrounds to independently recognise and benchmark your security experience, qualifications, training and professional commitment.
It is an evolving process which is constantly reviewed and updated to ensure it reflects today’s security profession.
The validation process is completed anonymously – therefore even if an applicant is known to members of the Validation Board, it is only possible to award membership grades based on the information and supporting evidence submitted.
The guardians of the validation process are the Validation Board. This is a voluntary team of some 36 security professionals representing a wide range of sectors in the profession and all grades of membership within the Institute. From this team approximately 10 – 14 members attend each monthly meeting of the VB to review all applications and recommend suitable grades for approval by the Board of Directors.
VB members are appointed by invitation of the VB Chairman. There is no maximum number however it is important that sufficient members are available from across a range of disciplines at each VB meeting.
The list of current VB members is provided below. If you would be interested in finding out more about being a VB member, please contact our Membership Manager, Paula Stanbridge via: firstname.lastname@example.org or on (01803) 663275.
