Welcome to the Risk & Security Management Forum website



The RSMF has about 60 plus members. It draws on their expertise to enhance risk management in government, law enforcement, the protective security services, corporate security and commercially provided intelligence services.

We provide a trusted network for sharing experience, opinions, information and influence across all sectors in order to bridge the various domains.




We promote:

  • Connectivity between the public and private sectors and academia.
  • Identification, assessment and mitigation of current and future security risks.
  • The benefits of security risk management to senior leaders and executives.

To encourage free and frank discussion, and ensure appropriate and responsible control of shared information, we operate under the Chatham House Rule.

We are not a Forum for the promotion of individual or company commercial benefit or interests.


About the RSMF

We use our broad-based membership to address strategic and more operational aspects of security risk.
For example:

  • At a recent seminar on illicit trade and counterfeiting we considered challenges in the field of aviation, pharmaceuticals and tobacco and heard from Europol and SOCA about their intervention strategies.

We plan four seminars each year. Two are one day events in London. The others are overnight at venues convenient to London. The themes for the seminars reflect matters of moment and suggestions from our members. We also organise ad-hoc meetings as the need arises.

The primary consideration for membership is the potential for the applicant to contribute to the forum by holding senior management position and / or possessing subject matter expertise in security or risk management.

  • The expertise or influence that the candidate would bring.
  • Whether this is already represented in the Forum.
  • Accelerate qualifications in an area of direct relevance to the Forum.
  • For academic members, clear evidence of research and publication judged to be of ‘international’ standard.
  • Balanced representation across the sectors.
