Over the next decade, there will be a significant need to develop the next generation of security management leaders. A study by the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) indicates that 60 percent of the professionals currently in security management roles have worked in the industry for over 20 years. The current pipeline of knowledgeable and skilled security managers available to replace the soon retiring professionals is limited. The ASIS study further emphasized that only five percent of today’s security professionals have been in the industry for less than 10 years; therefore, it is crucial for the industry to close the gap in this discrepancy.
This program has been designed to give you an applied understanding of physical, personal and information security, contemporary investigation methods, practical knowledge of the security industry, and business communication and management skills. You will gain the knowledge required to skillfully manage a security operation that includes communicating security plans to corporate executives. A certificate in corporate security management will provide you with the necessary skills to manage the extensive security aspect of an organization. It is the objective of this program to intertwine security knowledge and managerial skills so that you are able to lead a security operation in a corporate setting.
The Certificate in Corporate Security Management consists of seven required courses totaling 68 hours of lecture and discussion. 6.8 Continuing Education Units will be awarded to the certificate graduate.
