CAPSI, ISIO and SASA work together

Issue 6 2021 News

India’s CAPSI (The Central Association of Private Security Industry), ISIO (International Security Industry Organisation) and SASA (Security Association of South Africa) have formed an alliance to curb the collateral damage of the active mutating biological threat and tailing threats.

The health community has set the protocols for infection testing (chemically and electronically), the social movement of people and hygiene protocols. However, the private security industry is a critical player in this stressful time because there is crime related to the pandemic and the resulting economic meltdown, adding more havoc to the mix.

The private security industry, being on the front lines, experiences aggressive and violent incidents that lead to life-impacting and deadly outcomes. The medical fraternity do nurse infected people and therefore use appropriate protocols, but the security practitioners on the ground have no idea who is infectious and consequently a risk to the public at large.

The alliance is working together on a goal directed plan of action that is designed, by building capacity with specific stakeholders, to drive its methodology worldwide. In the understanding that the entire world needs to be inoculated at the same time, with the same potency of vaccine, dictates that the entire security force, that numbers in the millions, must work together at the same time, using the same security protocols for biological threat security.

Based on intensive research and application, the respective security industries will be promoting security protocols for biological threat security. These protocols are geared towards procedures using technology, besides layering the workforce on the ground according to skill sets.

The chairman of CAPSI, Kunwar Vikram Singh states, “This collaboration between CAPSI, ISIO and SASA, to protect humanity from biological weapons in the form of deadly viruses will prove a most serious life-saving initiative which governments and corporates must endorse and apply immediately. CAPSI has already discussed this dangerous aspect with the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs and also signed a MoU with Rashtriya Raksha University (National Security University), to commence bio-security education. The trustworthy HIM tool with security protocols for biological threat security is required to secure and limit the level of collateral damage.”

The chairman of SASA, Franz Verhufen, states that it is of critical importance that the private security industry ‘leads from the front’, protecting the national economy and the populations of their respective countries, which can only succeed if they, as a whole, work together in the campaign to reinforce their national governments, to curb and eliminate this deadly threat.

SASA and its members, who collectively employ in excess of 100 000 registered security officers, believe that with effective technology and using security protocols for biological threat security, they can definitely make a significant contribution in this battle against the pandemic.

Juan Kirsten, director general of ISIO firmly states, “The private security industry is larger than any navy, military, or policing agencies, collectively using the same protocols and therefore must be utilised to its full potential by being goal directed and working in concert, because it is already doing the job on the ground.”

The philosophy and methodology is outlined in the tools that can be found on which is endorsed by CAPSI, ISIO and SASA.
