Certificate In Corporate Security Management Studies
Develop Security Management Framework Using Strategic Security Structures, Concepts, Principles And Models
SYNOPSIS OF THE PROGRAM
The Certificate in Corporate Security Management Studies (CCSMS) lays out the foundation for developing a security management framework using strategic security structures, concepts, principles and models. It addresses the evolution of security technology and examines global risk and physical security trends to co-relate to both short-term and long-term prevailing security threats and challenges. Participants are also introduced to the foundations for planning and managing a security budget and presenting the budget to the c-suite leadership. In addition, this module provides an entry-level understanding of corporate, industrial and economic espionage and an introduction to emergency planning and crisis management.
CCSMS looks at the importance of strategic positioning of the Corporate Security function as an integral part of the Organization in order to nurture a collaborative partnerships with the other Business Units within the organization. This module equips participants to progressively develop the Corporate Security function to make a positive imprint and impact on the organization through active utilization of Corporate Competitive Intelligence, counter Corporate and Industrial Espionage frameworks and applying the concept of risk management to demonstrate the return on investment towards effective security budget planning and execution. Participants will learn how to apply fundamental security management principles and their inter-related applications and functions without impeding or going against the Organization’s corporate culture.
CCSMS aims to teach participants the impact of Risk and Threat to day-to-day business operations, learn about the two main types of Risk Classifications – Pure Risk and Business Risk and the various risk response options such as Risk Transfer, Risk Acceptance, Risk Avoidance and Risk Mitigation. Participants will also learn the definition and implication of various Risk terminologies such as Risk averse, Risk prone, Risk tolerance and Risk threshold. The final part of this module introduces participants to the concept of Business Continuity Management (BCM) and the role BCM plays in Emergency Planning, Response and Safeguarding the Resiliency and Survival of an Organization’s business. It serves as a prelude to the Business Continuity Management (BCM) Module in the Corporate Security Management Studies Diploma Course.
The key objective of the CCSMS is to provide participants with the building-blocks to develop a comprehensive
security management framework through utilization of analytical data and predictive trends related to global risk and physical security technology, planning a Security Budget that demonstrates both qualifying and quantifying security returns on investment and applying the fundamental concepts of Business Continuity Management through emergency planning and crisis management.
