What is a Sponsor?
A sponsor is a current member of ACSG who would be happy to recommend you for membership. We recommend notifying your sponsor, prior to adding their name to your application.
Why do I need to use my corporate email in my profile?
It is one of our membership conditions that members use a corporate email. The reason we ask for corporate emails is our commitment to integrity and safeguarding confidentiality of data. The network is for in-house corporate security professionals and a corporate email is one of the most effective ways to monitor/confirm this.
Do I need to update my profile if I move company or Job role?
Yes, all ACSG members must work in a corporate security role to maintain their membership. If you move role you will need to update your corporate email and new job role to confirm continued eligibility as well as to ensure you receive ACSG communications.
What happens if I leave my current job?
If you are moving to a new corporate security role, you simply need to update your ACSG profile online. If you are between roles, you can retain your ACSG member up to a 3-month period, provided you notify us of the change and provide a personal email address to contact you. Your membership will lapse at the end of the 3-month period, if we do not receive a new corporate email address and updated employment information.
