As with many other areas of business the Security function can be broad ranging and complex.
It is essential that individuals develop core competency skills to deal with the breadth of challenges and that specialist knowledge is imparted in an effective manner.

A well developed Learning and Training Programme can also have an advantageous effect on staff retention, helping to protect the investment made when an individual is employed.
