Today's security environment has become increasingly complex and fault intolerant. Companies rely upon those providing technical support and guidance to provide timely, relevant and appropriate guidance. With legal liability and accountability becoming more prevalent in today's business environment, ensuring that education and training is credible, relevant and well-founded is becoming a key concern. IAMSP has established an approach to assisting those preparing for certifications such as the ASIS International Certified Protection Professional (CPP) and Physical Security Professional (PSP) as well as the (ISC)2 Computer and Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) that takes into account the need for individually-tailored learning that leverages network-enabled technology. These coaching sessions, which can be arranged for small groups or on a one-on-one basis take into account individual learning biases, provide significant resources and do so at highly competitive rates.

The need to secure maritime communications has been recognized by naval and law enforcement forces for decades. The ISPS Code (Part B Section 8.3.5) made this one of the key requirements in Ship Security Assessments and required those conducting these assessments to possess knowledge in the protection of radio and telecommunications systems, including computer systems and networks. The on-scene survey covered in Part B Section 8.14 required the examination of operations and controls to ensure that ship security communications, information and equipment remain available. IAMSP is contributing to the advancement of this work through its participation on international working groups, assisting its members with achieving industry-recognized certification, and providing awareness materials and references on this issue.
IAMSP is proud to announce the release of its first online professional development course, available as part of the Full and Associate membership within the Association. This course, the first of four, concentrates on the Duty of Care and is part of a series that is intended to set the baseline for professional conduct in the domain.
This training is intended to meet two critical needs within the industry.
First, IAMSP's offering allows its Full and Associate members the opportunity, without incurring additional costs, to demonstrate to the industry that they are willing to expand their knowledge and understanding with respect to professional conduct. This serves to meet the industry's need for a clear, verifiable means of determining the security practitioner's understanding of key concepts that can be traced back through common and accepted audit processes.
Second, this offering demonstrates IAMSP's commitment in support of its membership and the shipping industry, providing realistic, cost-effective alternatives to meet the shipping industry's evolving requirements. As a further expression of good will, IAMSP's Executive has also taken the decision to allow, assessed on a case-by-case basis, the release of the material to recognized and accredited maritime institutions as a tangible demonstration of our Association's commitment to building long term solutions to these challenges in return for proper attribution of the work.
IAMSP's commitment in this regard is to provide the industry, academic institutions, and practitioners with a cost-effective platform by which their members can broaden their knowledge and understanding of the maritime security domain. At the same time, these short courses will also be used as part of the Continuing Education and Upkeep requirements associated with the Certified Maritime Security Professional.
