Must Read

In this interview with Charles Randolph, Founding Member and President of the International Protective Security Board, we delve into the IPSB’s mission and goals, and talk about the highly anticipated CPC 2023.

With over two decades of experience in the protective security industry and an extensive military background, Chuck shares his unique journey, the IPSB’s mission, and what attendees can expect from the upcoming Close Protection Conference 2023.

Could you provide our readers with an overview of the IPSB and its mission? What led to its founding in 2016, and how has it evolved since then?

First and foremost, we serve as a dedicated forum to enhance, educate, and elevate awareness within the Close Protection Industry.

Complementing this core objective, we are committed to providing opportunities for professional development and continuous education in the Close Protection field. We recognize the dynamic nature of this industry and the importance of staying up to date with evolving trends and technologies. By facilitating these learning experiences, we empower Close Protection professionals to improve and excel continually.

As an agnostic organization, the IPSB believes collecting best practices and acquiring insights from them should be a shared industry-wide objective. The board is dedicated to creating an environment that encourages the cultivation and widespread distribution of professional standards and optimal practices within this sector.

In tandem with our educational efforts, we actively promote the Close Protection Industry in established and emerging markets. Our strategic promotional initiatives aim to underscore the industry’s significance and its contribution to safeguarding individuals and assets. Additionally, we engage in research and educational endeavors to advance the understanding of Close Protection practices, ensuring that the industry remains at the forefront of security solutions and adapts to meet the evolving needs of the global community.

The IPSB has outlined several goals, including the development of professional standards and best practices in the industry. Can you elaborate on the significance of these goals and how they benefit both professionals and the industry as a whole?

Best practices are the essential foundation of any industry, ensuring the quality and safety of services. In the Protective Security industry, even more so. The IPSB is committed to promoting best practices across all aspects of this field, actively contributing to organizations developing standards.

The importance of best practices transcends individual practitioners; they have the power to raise the industry’s bar. When universally understood, they create a benchmark of excellence that can inspire greater trust and instill confidence in the industry.

In line with the IPSB’s motto – by, with, and for the industry, we’re eager to learn more about this year’s conference. It’s considered to be the largest and most influential event in the industry, what can attendees expect at the CPC 2023?

The CPC 2023 stands as the crowning jewel in the IPSB’s event calendar, positioned to draw practitioners from diverse corners of the globe. This flagship conference celebrates industry excellence, offering a forum where professionals share knowledge, foster connections, and stay informed about the latest Protective Security trends.

We are thrilled to have Rex Tillerson, the former U.S. Secretary of State and former Chairman of ExxonMobil, deliver the keynote address at CPC 2023. Mr. Tillerson’s extensive experience and insights will undoubtedly provide a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities within the Protective Security industry. As a professional who has been privy to security measures from both private and public spheres of his career and as a leader who has expertly navigated risk management for one of the world’s most significant multinational corporations, his keynote promises to be a conference highlight. His tenure as the Secretary of the United States Department of State further enriches his perspective. Attendees can look forward to a fantastic opportunity to gain fresh insights and inspiration from this globally recognized leader.

At the core of the CPC 2023 lies a comprehensive program designed to enrich and educate. Attendees can anticipate diverse educational sessions, workshops, and ample networking opportunities. The conference represents a unique space where ideas, experiences, and insights converge, fostering collaboration and innovation among industry peers. In essence, the CPC 2023 is a must-attend event for anyone with a vested interest in remaining ahead of the curve and embracing the future of Protective Security.
