Who should attend

The Effective Management for Security Professionals program is aimed at security managers that wish to develop their business acumen. Participants hail from all over the world and boast a diverse range of ages, nationalities and industry experience. A collaborative experience, the program allows participants to develop strong and personal working relationships that benefit future business endeavours.

About the course

Designed in conjunction with ASIS international, our Effective Management for Security Professionals program helps security professionals refine their business acumen. Over five days, participants develop key interdisciplinary competencies to supplement their technical expertise. Experienced security executives guide participants through the security challenges that permeate the modern market and equip them with the necessary tools to overcome them.

The program’s hands-on methodology ensures that participants leave the program as enablers of their businesses’ success. Once they have developed their own business plan, participants share ideas through group discussion, allowing for personal development in a collaborative environment.

Benefits of the program

  • Diversity and richness of the program framework and participant base
  • Intimate learning environment
  • Led by security professionals with over 30 years’ experience


  • Adopt a ‘strategic mindset’
  • Become a refined decision-maker
  • Develop cross-functional knowledge
  • Be aware of the factors that are driving market transformation


Prior to starting the program, participants will have access to the IE virtual campus in order to prepare readings and classwork. Once the program begins, this theory is developed with a practical approach, through lectures, case studies, group discussions and role-play. Participants also have the opportunity to apply what they have learnt to real-world case studies, developing strategic business plans that can be applied to their own companies.

Introduction: setting the context

Examine today’s transforming socio-economic landscape and its impact on your organization and the security management role at large to glean insights into tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities.

Leading in uncertainty

Understand the impact of constant changes in the environment on the individual and the organization and explore key parameters and tools to assess and manage change. Determine change mindsets, identify resistance barriers, and tackle them on a one-to-one approach and in the organizational setting.

** Creating a strategic mindset **

Develop an understanding of the strategic core concepts and analytical tools needed to cultivate a “strategic mindset” that will allow you to create value and competitive advantage within your role as security manager.


Core elements of negotiation: the common structure of negotiations, negotiation do’s and dont’s, handling conflicting interests and unequal negotiating powers of parties involved, and effective techniques and best practices.

The application of financial information

Grasp the latest concepts in financial management and how these tools may help any manager, not just financial specialists, make sounder business decisions, with a special emphasis on budgeting, valuation and value creation.

Bringing it all together

Integrate and apply the acquired knowledge and skills to a specific business problem within your own organization. Participants will work on their own Security plan and will present it to their peers.
