The Global Secure assessment process has been created to deliver a thorough security assessment without interfering with the day-to-day running of the hotel.
Each participating hotel is assigned a dedicated GSA trained and qualified assessor, drawn from our global network of experienced former law enforcement or military professionals. All our assessors are independently accredited by SFJ Awards. The GSA intelligence analysts will complete a risk assessment that is unique to the specific hotel. This takes into consideration the likelihood and impact of national, regional and local security risks.
Depending on the level of accreditation the client adopts, the assessor will either manage the assessment through an evidence based online process, undertaken remotely through our bespoke web-based software platform, or the assessor will undertake the assessment on behalf of the hotel, including a full on-site inspection.
When the assessment is completed the hotel is either recommended to SFJ Awards for accreditation, or a plan for remedial action is agreed with the hotel to meet the required standard.
Successful hotels receive a Global Secure Certificate of Accreditation, a detailed Accreditation Report and digital assets, including the Global Secure mark, for guest and industry communications.
We take data security seriously. Our web-based software platform and the secure server it is hosted on have been independently penetration tested for integrity. Our members and their properties are anonymised on the platform using unique reference numbers.
