The BSIA’s Specialist Services Section is the Association’s newest section of membership, officially launched in November 2013. The section consists of members that offer specialist services including Close Protection, Technical Surveillance Counter Measures, Surveillance, IT Forensics, Cyber Security and Security Consulting including Critical National Infrastructure.
The section was created in light of the growing international reputation of the UK security sector and its products and services, particularly within the area of specialist security. As well as operating as an overall section, the new section also hosts a number of specialist working groups, allowing smaller, but still important, niche areas of the UK security sector to thrive within the Association. These working groups will ensure that issues affecting particular areas of the section are dealt with in a timely manner, along with enhancing cross sector and cross section communication.
Members of the section can assist security buyers with specialist and challenging requirements both in the UK and internationally, such as maritime security, penetration testing and critical national infrastructure protection.
