Romania 277 Asis Chapter – Security Management
In May, the ASIS International Romania Chapter organized a private security management course at the Ramada Bucharest Hotel. The course consisted of eleven modules which were presented by seven trainers.
The different modules focused on professional development in private security management, selecting and recruiting security personnel, procedural regulation of security officers’ activity, risk management, designing and implementation of electronic security solutions, and the impact of technology on the private security industry.
The key takeaways of this comprehensive two-day training program are:
- New technologies have already had a tremendous impact on security operations throughout the last two decades and this trend will continue even more aggressively.
- A reliable security solution keeps the right balance between people, technology, and procedures, resulting from a thorough risk assessment.
- Continuous learning is the key for professional development. The learning process should be available at all levels of management, hence should be available also for middle management, security supervisors, and even shift leaders.
At the end of the course, a visit to the national dispatch center of the biggest Romanian bank was organized. Twelve security professionals attended the course. Their feedback was very good according to an attendee survey and informal discussions after the course.
