What is the Diploma of Security Risk Management About?

The role of a Risk Manager sits at a Diploma level, as a general rule. Risk Managers are responsible for communicating risk policies and the overall policies and procedures for an organisation that minimise and manage risks.

This includes development of risk models, monitoring and improving controls to ensure there is effective risk management at an operational and strategic level. To achieve these outcomes, a Risk Manager is going to need to ensure extensive and appropriate research and quantitative and qualitative analysis has occurred.

Risk Managers must have the business skills to communicate effectively through a range of reports, negotiations and educational presentations, balanced with savvy business and operational knowledge.

To complete the Diploma of Security Risk Management through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), you need to demonstrate at least two years experience in:

  • Establishing and maintaining an occupational health and safety system
  • Coordinating security operations
  • Assessing security risk management options
  • Ensuring team effectiveness in a security/risk management environment

The Diploma of Security Risk Management has 10 units of competency, five of which are core (or mandatory) units, and five elective units of competency. The core units address skills and knowledge in these areas:

  • Establish and maintain an occupational health and safety system

As with the Certificate IV, elective units can be chosen according to the direction you want to take your SRM career – be that risk management, biometrics, financial security, network security or business, marketing and HR management.

Security Risk Management Industry

The Security Risk Management (SRM) sector is expanding rapidly as demand from both government and private enterprise grows. So too is the range of roles available within this industry.

At one end of the spectrum there will always be straight forward security guard and personal protection roles, however increasingly security and risk careers have evolved into the realm of data protection and corporate IP security, with opportunities both domestically and internationally.

Security Risk Management careers represent a prime civilian industry for ex-military and ex-police personnel. However it is also an industry that values a wide range of life and work experience, particularly business skills.

You will find a lot more information in our SRM Industry Report.
