June 2013 Intake Celebrate Award of CSMP Level 6 Accredited Diploma

The June 2013 intake are celebrating passing the CSMP Diploma.   Feedback on the programme has been very positive with many students citing real-life examples of how the knowledge gained on CSMP will be put to use to optimise the security at their sites, or to add value to the services that they provide as contractors.  Amongst the students graduating are professionals from the Post Office, a UK-based global risk consultancy, an overseas diplomatic service (embassy security manager), a global strategic consulting service in critical infrastructure protection and homeland security, Kings Security – an award-winning UK physical security installation and monitoring service provider, PepsiCo Inc, Siemens, Kenya Defence Forces and BMW.  To sign up for the CSMP Diploma contact enquiries@ismi.org.uk


Just Google ISMI

Many students find ISMI through Google, so it is fitting that CSMP-certified professionals are employed to protect Google data centres in Europe.  Recently, David Cresswell, Programme Director, was invited to Google Regional HQ in London to present Diplomas to successful students.
