New security academy to open in London

The Global Institute of Cyber, Intelligence and Security (GICIS) and the International Professional Security Association (IPSA) have announced a ground-breaking partnership which will see the birth of a security training academy in London.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed at GICIS’ central London office by Academic Director Dr Martin Wright, Head of Marketing and Business Development Flavio Cabral and IPSA CEO Justin Bentley.

The MoU sealed a partnership that will see GICIS providing the academic infrastructure and support to facilitate IPSA creating an education and training academy for its current and future members.

Reflecting on the MoU, Dr Martin Wright said, “We are delighted to finalise this alliance. We believe it will help deliver great value for all parties, who will benefit from the well-established presence in the security industry of both GICIS and IPSA.

“We believe this exciting partnership will certainly benefit the security industry and we eagerly look forward to putting this partnership into action.”

GICIS will initially create a range of business best practice courses, followed by the development of co-branded, marketed, and accredited security management and industrial security programmes.

Justin Bentley, CEO of IPSA, said: “We are delighted to enter this joint venture with GICIS as it will allow us to share IPSA’s expertise with a worldwide market, encouraging individuals working in security to increase their knowledge and professionalism.”

IPSA is one of the oldest membership bodies for the international security industry, having been formed over 50 years ago. It has a market reach of around 30,000 individuals and companies.

“IPSA has been built on a foundation of providing quality training and this partnership with GICIS will allow us to offer this to a wider audience,” added Mr Bentley.
