Learn about our strategic forum

Our strategic forum is made up of people who can represent the interests of the private security industry.

It is chaired by Elizabeth France, Chair of the SIA. It also includes our Chief Executive Ian Todd and Authority Member Kate Bright.

We choose members of the forum for their expertise and knowledge of the private security industry. They help us to:

  • understand how well we are doing as a regulator
  • stay informed of important changes within the private security industry
  • discuss ways in which the regulation of private security could be improved

You can contact any member of the forum to request that they ask a question or raise a topic on your behalf.
