Virtual workshops for security management

May 2019 Training & Education, Security Services & Risk Management

The International Security Industry Organisation (ISIO) and the International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO) has announced a series of virtual courses aimed at criminologists, security, investigation, protection and risk management practitioners. These 1-hour virtual workshops are endorsed by ISIO and the IFPO

Practitioners will not gain a generic overview of security, investigation and risk management, but the courses (also available as in-class programmes) are flavoured differently to address different verticals. For example, the courses cover the following areas:

Organised crime, gang crime and the ever-changing conventional crime

• Correctional services and detention centres

• International security management

• Polarised neighbourhood policing

• Border control and immigration

• Corporate and industry security

• Critical Infrastructure Security

• Security investigations

• Hotel security

The courses are held at various times throughout the year. Coming up next will be Security and Criminology Investigation Management. This workshop is delivered to a maximum of 10 people and covers:

The difference between security and criminology investigators

• Organised crime, gang crime and the ever-changing conventional crime

• Critical thinking the narrative

• Reading the situation and the people involved or a person-of-interest

• Why some people are not 'cut-out' to be investigators

• Selecting the experts

• Evidence handling and securing the custody of evidence

Other upcoming options include:

Critical thinking the X factor in criminology, security and risk

• Lie, deception detection and critical situational interviewing

• Witness and protection profiling
