The Security Institute provides security training during Covid-19
The Security Institute, the UK’s largest membership organisation for security professionals, has worked with its partners to launch a series of webinars and a variety of different resources to assist security professionals during the lockdown period.
The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in unprecedented social change and uncertainty; the security industry has been presented with unique challenges that make it particularly hard for security professionals to undertake networking, career and professional development at this time.
To help members and the wider community adapt and ensure they are prepared for success during and after the crisis, the Institute has introduced a range of different resources available via their website and digital events.
At the beginning of March, a series of weekly webinars was launched. Leveraging the vast knowledge of the corporate partners and members, a diverse range of topics will be presented in half-day CPD workshops and shorter webinar presentations. These events can be booked via the Security Institute website and the smartphone App, with new webinars being announced continually. All webinars will be presented live with interactive features that allow attendees to ask questions, ensuring that everyone can gain an in-depth understanding of the topic.
Each event will also be recorded so that members can download and watch all webinars at their convenience in the Members’ Area of the Security Institute website: https://security-institute.org/members-area/
Highlights of the line-up so far have included collaborations with the SIA, Nedap, TrakTick, Aviligion, Business Insight 3 and G4S.
In addition to these weekly informative webinars, the Security Institute has now launched SyI Morning Features every Friday morning. These are informal Member meet-ups that you can attend from the comfort and safety of your own home. This is a unique opportunity to meet other security professionals from across the UK and beyond, helping you remain well-connected with the security community during this prolonged period of lockdown.
It is hoped that these short free-to-attend SyI Morning Feature sessions will provide some much needed social interaction, as we all collectively adjust to day-to-day life under lockdown.
Previous instalments have centred around member book reviews, exploring different SyI member benefits as well as discussing some of the latest industry developments.
These can again be booked via the Security Institute website.
For the immediate future, Chartered Security Professional (CSyP) Application Workshops will be delivered live to small groups via webinar. These workshops can be booked on a first come first-served basis. As with the physical workshops, the group will be kept to a small cohort to allow individual development.
Due to exceptional demand, the CSyP Application Workshop Webinars will be delivered every week during May and June.
