(VAT exclusive price)

Course duration: 2 Days     Course dates: 11 - 12 February  2018     Course location: Gatwick, UK

This course provides the fundamentals of how to develop and maintain an effective Security Management System concept developed by The CAA.


A Security Management Systems states:


  • security risks should be managed at the right level, overseen by company boards;
  • activities should be measured to provide management information on security performance;
  • there should be people in the organisation who are accountable for maintaining rigorous security standards, using the management information; and
  • there should be a culture that promotes high security standards throughout the company.


A SeMS achieves this by providing an organised, systematic approach to managing security which embeds security management into the day-to-day activities of the organisation and its people.
