Whether you are in Europe or Asian, North or South America, Africa, the Middle East, or Australasia, you are never far from an IPSA member. As not only the oldest corporate and personal membership body for the security industry, IPSA also has the greatest global coverage.
IPSA is the membership body for individuals and companies in the security sector and has been formed for over six decades. It is a diverse international association which is a champion of integrity and professionalism giving a voice for the security industry. Our aim is to enhance professionalism in the security industry
As the security industry has changed, IPSA has ensured that its members, be they corporate or individual, have remained in the forefront of those developments by supporting national regulators and working alongside other associations worldwide.
The security industry has seen vast changes during 60 years with rises in cyber-attacks and several large scale terrorist incidents which look set to change the security industry forever. This has seen new approaches to everyday security in all environments and at IPSA we will continue to focus on developing our training, standards, and specific areas of expertise. Although headquartered in the UK, IPSA is able to bring together thought-leaders and subject-matter experts from around the globe to help and advise our members.
Our board represents experts in manned guarding, maritime security, facilities management, risk management, policing, training and international relationships. These experts are available to advise individual members and companies in their specialist fields. Our membership extends to frontline officers who have the opportunity to develop by engaging in our continuous professional development programme which can be found on the website
