The Security Benchmark

Member Register

The “Security Benchmark Register” has been designed to promote security providers who have purchased a Benchmark report and wish to be visible to interested stakeholders. The performance data is of significant value to external parties and procurement agencies as it could potentially highlight suitable security partners and/or suppliers to meet their business needs and expectations.

All Companies who subscribe to the Security Benchmark Scheme remain confidential. However, once a security provider has registered with the Security Benchmark and purchased at least one of the reports available (Security Benchmark Report and/or Security Benchmark ACS report) they will be issued Benchmark Member status and will be eligible to be placed on the Benchmark Register.

In order to achieve Bronze, Silver or Gold status a company must purchase and complete the Security Benchmark Report option. A company will need to achieve a defined standard against the 15 mandatory questions (Core Criteria*).

The Register will be displayed on the website and will reflect;

The name and contact details of the security provider
A link to its website
A written introduction to the Company
  • Benchmark status;
  • Benchmark Member
  • Benchmark Bronze Member
  • Benchmark Silver Member
  • Benchmark Gold Member

The scheme facilitates buyers of security to approach security providers directly. Buyers may also approach the Security Benchmark for the names of approved companies that meet their set procurement criteria.

* The 15 core criteria require evidence to be uploaded to the system, in order to verify the performance levels selected.
