    Default Physical Security Certifications

    I've been recently tasked with physical security responsibilities at my organization, and was wondering what coursework / certifications exist in this particular space. I know ASIS has the PSP, but I haven't been able to find much else.

    Up to this point, I've been using knowledge gained from real-world experience, as well as some guidance from the CISSP study coursework, but I'm interested in taking my knowledge a step or two deeper. Any feedback on the ASIS PSP or any other courses out there?

    Lots of security certifications, yet the more I learn, the further I have to go...

    ASIS is the primary physical security org. Thought about taking some myself, but there's so much technical in infosec land I haven't run out of things to learn here yet!

    Not gonna lie, I attended ASIS a few years ago I got excited with all the physical sec stuff. One of the coolest thing I saw was the Cisco NERV. i definitely want one.

    In a related note, SANS is hosting a physical security training event as part of their yearly "Pentest Hackfest" event this November in DC. Not sure how relevant that is to you, but I thought you may be interested.

    I worked in electronic/physical security for 7 years and have tons of experience so I keep my eye on PSP to validate this skillset, maybe in a year or two from now but eventually I plan to get it.

    The PSP id a good cert to have. I recently passed it and it was a doozy. I also do PS for the DoD and have their cert(PSC) as well. Great thing about the PSP is if you work for the DON or USMC you can automatically qualify as a Physical Security Inspector.

    Too funny on the CISCO Nerv I never saw one before. However I used to have students in the capstone design something similar from a stock RV. The students in the capstone were from multiple disciplines and we had a few CAD students who did the internal layouts the electronic guys came up with the components needed to hydraulic lifts, sensors and so on including the sat systems. The IT guys put the system designs together and so on. Then they presented to the city of Mobile AL. Some of their ideas were so good the city was considering looking into getting something put together similar to what they designed. That was years ago though. Awesome stuff

    PSP is generally associated with EP types or Executive Protection but really an under represented discipline of security in general. Hack a HID, gain access and tick your client off in five minutes or less.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. There's probably a lot of knowledge to be had in going through the study material for the PSP, even though I don't meet the experience requirement. The Physical Security Specialist offering at the SANS event looks really interesting - unfortunately I won't be able to attend, and it looks like the organization who is presenting it doesn't offer that specific class outside of the SANS event.
