IPSA has a number of Sections, each dedicated to a particular aspect of the security industry.
These sections act as knowledge-hubs where thought-leaders and subject matter experts come together with security providers to discuss issues which faces the industry, future developments and how to share best practice.
These are nothing less than global forums where we meet and discuss what is important to us, and share our knowledge around the globe with each other.
The Sections which are currently active are:
Facilities Management Section
Dealing with the challenges of integrating services across a wide range of FM functions without diminishing the quality of security provision.

Please Note: Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all Section Meetings are now being conducted using video conferencing.
IPSA foresees how using this technology will improve communications for our global membership. We are investigating how to make this the “new normal” way of running Section Meetings, and how best to take into account time differences.
Due to the global nature of IPSA, the working language for all meetings is English.
