Our Services


We advise our clients on matters pertaining to the physical protection of people and property e.g. executive protection and other forms of security.

We provide information about technical security systems and assist our clients with the daily management of both large and small scale security projects. As an example event organizers can rely on our massive experience in the fields of event security management. 


IAPPA offers a variety of training programs to members of the security and law enforcement community. We provide clients from all over the world with security training that is in accordance with the highest international IAPPA standards.

We host and organize courses at the IAPPA Academy, our international partners and certified instructors - for first-class results and the necessary knowledge advantage.


The IAPPA Certification program is closing this gap for people who really know their jobs, have hands-on experience and want that to be valued as such.

Our certifications are not gifts that you buy online. Our examination board evaluates every application received and only certifies those that meet the high standard. An internationally recognized certificate from IAPPA distinguishes the holder as a true professional.
"Success is the result of hard work, perseverance and the tireless willingness to get back up when you fall."
