Welcome to the International Association of Personal Protection Agents

IAPPA is a professional organisation for personal protection agents and security professionals with different backgrounds. Formed in 1989, IAPPA is regarded as the only truly international association with members in over thirty countries, including corporate security teams from international corporations, government agencies, military, police and private executive protection personnel. 


In 2018, I was appointed as the new President of the organization. Together with my team we have restructured the whole organization to implement and uphold the highest internationally recognized standards for the global security industry. In addition to the core competence of international personal protection, IAPPA will become an important partner in corporate security in the future. New training programs and information sharing will continue to ensure high quality standards for IAPPA members who become part of a strong and competent community.  

I look forward to receiving your application.
