Welcome to the iSMTA/ASTA and our Modern Physical Security Training Professional course at Level 5, which is certified by ASTA and conforms to the qualification regulators in the UK.
Physical Security has been a necessary part of organisations and business since they began. The need to protect the organisation or business, its brand reputation, its assets, its workforce, its profits and its trade secrets has been daily activity, the value of which is often only recognised when something goes wrong. Every organisation, business or even home, will be protected by the use of physical security measures, with most security protective measures being so normal that they are a simple part of our everyday lives. Our front doors, the locks to our car, the fence around our garden, are just such examples of physical security.
Physical Security Training being modern
Another feature of Physical Security is that it needs to be ever changing, to adapt to changing threats, to changing business needs and to our ever-changing world. Physical Security therefore must continue to modernise to maintain its value and effectiveness. Those employed to advise on Physical Security Training needs to keep up-to-date too. Qualifying through this physical security training course is an excellent way to be a modern Physical Security Professional and provides a perfect pathway to further Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
