There are two levels of membership. Global Secure is a subscription-based membership which is renewed annually.
All levels of membership incorporate an independent accreditation by SFJ Awards including a Certificate of Accreditation, Accreditation Report and Action Plan for any remediation.
Global Secure Prestige Membership provides a bespoke assessment of the client hotel undertaken by a nominated GSA assessor, including an onsite inspection, which relieves the hotel of the need to complete the on-line process and allows for a more comprehensive report and recommendations. The enhanced accreditation report is a powerful marketing tool to present to present to prospective corporate clients and clients who seek assurance about security and safety. Upon successful accreditation the client hotel receives a certificate of accreditation and GSA branding materials.
Global Secure Prestige members are also provided with access to the Global Secure Community, a secure ‘online’ space where they can access a bespoke ‘real time’ service platform for hotel specific security alerts, information, intelligence, advice and a member’s forum where innovations and good practice can be shared. The community also provides ‘one-stop’ access to a range of hotel security related services, including training packages and approved specialist contractors.
Global Secure Membership provides an ‘on-line’ self-assessment for clients to seek accreditation of their hotel against the GSA baseline standards. The self-assessment process involves addressing a series of security questions across six categories and requires supporting evidence, such as policies or photographs, to be uploaded by the client hotel where required. The on-line accreditation process is facilitated and reviewed by a GSA assessor, who will provide advice and guidance to the applicant hotel. Upon successful accreditation the client hotel will receive a certificate of accreditation, an accreditation report and GSA branding materials. Global Secure members will also receive quarterly hotel security intelligence bulletin. GSA promotes accredited hotels to booking agents and corporate clients to assist them in discharging their duty of care for their clients and staff.
Membership of Global Secure provides access to a community of fellow hotel professionals and security specialists dedicated to improving hotel security.
The Community platform disseminates real time information and intelligence about relevant threats and effective counter measures, as well as range of other support services.
The Community is your ‘one-stop’ shop for everything relating to security and your hotel.”
