SecuriGroup Chair Appointed to Prestigious Security Role

Baroness Ruth Henig CBE CSyI, Chair of SecuriGroup, has now been appointed the Chair of the Chartered Security Professionals Registration Authority (CSPR).

At the Annual Chartered Security Professional (CSyP) Presentation Dinner, held in the Central Criminal Court (Old Bailey) in the City of London, the outgoing Chairman, Alex Carlile CBE QC, welcomed Baroness Henig to her new position.

Don Randall MBE CSyP, member of the CSPRA committee, said of this appointment;

"It is with enormous pleasure that we give Baroness Ruth Henig a hearty welcome as the new Chair of the CSyP governance body, CSPRA. Likewise, we give Lord Alex an equally hearty vote of thanks for his chairmanship, wisdom and astute guidance to the CSPRA board over the past eight years."

Baroness Henig said "It is a great honour to follow Lord Carlile.

"I very much look forward to working with senior security professionals on the Registration Authority.

"We all share a strong commitment to raise professional standards across the private security sector, and to encourage those working in the industry to gain chartered status."

CSPRA is the committee which was established to oversee the management and maintenance of standards for the Register of Chartered Security Professionals (RCSP). Presentations were made to Lord Alex after the dinner, and many tributes paid to him for his support and wise guidance during his tenure.

To date, the Register of Chartered Security Professionals holds 138 names – each of whom have passed a rigorous application process including a professional interview and have been practising in their areas of expertise at a strategic level.

Competency skills required focus on security knowledge and application, but applicants must also demonstration good leadership and communication skills and a commitment to ongoing personal development in their professional security career.

The Register includes academics, corporate heads of security, security providers, cyber specialists and consultants.
