The security and risk management consultancy Finbarr Solutions is offering free face-to-face video consultations with a member of the Register of Chartered Security Professionals. The consultancy says the service is for any organisation that would benefit from independent advice, about their security requirements and systems, manning levels and/or security postures.
The Register of Chartered Security Professionals was set up under a Royal Charter issued to the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals in the UK and was launched in 2011 as a standard of competence in the security industry. Ciaran Barry CSyP is the Managing Director of Finbarr and joined the Register in 2019. Ciaran, pictured, says: “January is often an ideal time to assess security provision for the year ahead, whether it is reviewing the performance and ongoing suitability of existing systems, preparing tenders for new services and solutions, or assessing skills and training requirements.”
The 30-minute consultation can also be guided by a specific issue or topic, such as handling sensitive workplace investigations, legal requirements for employees working from home, or dealing with cyber-crime. Ciaran cites specific guidance that every organisation can benefit from, in terms of preparedness and agility, to face the uncertainty of the year ahead. He says: “Last year many business continuity and crisis management plans were conceived and initiated on the fly. It is important to frequently take stock of what is working, what needs to improve and how to go about making the right decisions. Many smaller organisations struggle as they don’t have easy, or affordable access to expertise. It is for this reason Finbarr Solutions is launching free consultations.”
Besides that CSyP postnominal, Ciaran has a Diploma in Security Management (with Distinction), a BA Hons Degree in Business Studies and holds the security management association ASIS’ Certified Protection Professional (CPP) qualification. Ciaran served ten years in the British Army and eight years at Hertfordshire Constabulary as a detective.
