Synopsis: In the practical real world a CPP may be a security manager, an external consultant, or a law enforcement agent. For purpose of the exam, however, you want to position yourself as a hired consultant – one who acts as an advisor to the company management. The company is your client, and you are helping it out. You advise, you guide, and you recommend. You need to understand your client. If your client is absolutely new to security, full scale interviews and statistical analysis on crimes may be necessary. However, if your client has a working security mechanism in place, then you should conduct assessment basing primarily on inputs from management. In other words, management determines the depth and scope of the security project. Management makes the decisions. You suggest ways to improve, then carry out the decisions made by management. You don’t normally make decisions for your client. It is safe to say that you assume the role of project manager for your client’s security project. The security project would start by discussing the scope of work with your client. The most important meeting between you and the client would be the initial goal setting and policy review meeting. Senior management is going to get involved, and you are going to act as the facilitator. From this meeting you become aware of the level of risk your client is willing to assume and accept. Your work would then start from there. When working on a project it is important to understand the background and operation of the client. You also want to know what you are up against. Protection against vandalism is totally different from protection against terrorist attack. A CPP is more on the planning and management side of security. A security guard professional, on the other hand, is to provide client with professional protective services. It is believed that the CPP certification is more general in nature, while the PSP certification is way more specific and in-depth in physical security. To summarize, the major knowledge areas include: Security Principles and Theories Business Principles Personnel Security Physical Security Information Security Crisis Management Investigations Legal Matters We give you knowledge information relevant to the exam specification. To be able to succeed in the real exam, you’ll need to apply your earned knowledge to the question scenarios. Many of the exam questions are written to be less straight forward. They tend to be framed within the context of short scenarios. An advice: Do NOT rely on a single source for exam preparation. To secure exam success, always use multiple sources and read as much as possible!

About the Author: According to ASIS, Certified Protection Professional (CPP) is a designation awarded to candidates whose primary responsibilities are in security management and who have demonstrated advanced knowledge in security solutions and best business practices. To take the CPP exam one must have earned a bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited institution of higher education, plus 7 years of security experience, including at least 3 years in responsible charge of a security function. For those without a degree, 9 years of security experience would be required. The CPP exam requires that you complete 200 multiple-choice questions covering tasks, knowledge, and skills on the following 8 topics: Security Principles Business Practices Personnel Security Physical Security Information Security Crisis Management Investigations Legal Matters Coverage is extensive - so extensive that I wouldn't recommend taking the test until you are fully drilled on these various topics. We come up with this CPP Essential Topics Guide which covers most of the more difficult topics that may give you a hard time in the exam. We at ExamREVIEW develop study material entirely on our own.
