ASIS International Partners with Brownyard Educational Center to Advance Education of Security Professionals

Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) September 15, 2011

The Brownyard Educational Center (http://www.BrownyardU.com) and ASIS International (http://www.ASISOnline.org) today announced an educational partnership that will strengthen the Center’s role as the world’s first web-based center of excellence for security professionals. The educational partnership will make the Center’s continuing education and degree programs available to the 37,000 active ASIS members.

“It is fitting that we announce this important partnership with ASIS just days after the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, because well-educated and well-trained security professionals are the first line of defense, whether it’s against natural disasters, crime or acts of terrorism,” said Tory Brownyard, president of Brownyard Group.

The Brownyard Educational Center was founded by Brownyard Group, a leader in insurance for the security industry, and Cardinal Point Strategies, a risk management consulting firm working in national security, government affairs and professional development. The Center features three prominent educational partners: CiNet’s Professional Security Training Network (PSTN), Kaplan EduNeering and Kaplan University.

“Quality education is at the cornerstone of the ASIS mission,” stated Raymond T. O’Hara, CPP, president, ASIS International. “Partnerships with industry organizations such as the Brownyard Educational Center enable ASIS to broaden the scope of learning opportunities for our members around the world.”

“The partnership with ASIS International will help the Brownyard Educational Center reach more security professionals, a mission that is more important than ever,” said Paul Goldenberg, CEO of Cardinal Point Strategies. “With municipal and county police agencies facing unprecedented budget cuts and staff reductions, professionally trained private and contracted security officers will be needed to fill these gaps.”

Extensive Educational Offerings

The Brownyard Platinum Performance Training Program includes three tiers of courses from PSTN and Kaplan EduNeering:

    Tier I: Basic Security Officer Training Series (BSOTS)
    Tier II: Liability in Security Operations and Risk
    Tier III: Professional Development and Management – Supervisor Excellence Series

A partnership with Kaplan University makes available Kaplan University’s associate and bachelor’s degrees in Criminal Justice, as well as a master’s degree in Homeland Security & Emergency Management. Brownyard Educational Center students receive a 10 percent tuition reduction on Kaplan University courses.

Affordable, Online Learning System

The Brownyard Educational Center was designed to be both affordable and easy to use, with courses priced well below the security industry average and insurance incentives for participating security firms that are insured by Brownyard Group. In addition, security professionals have access to real-time information for the private security industry.

All courses are offered conveniently online, either through a state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS), or through Kaplan University:

    For the Brownyard Platinum Performance Training Program, the Center utilizes a robust, flexible and customizable interactive web-based LMS. Security professionals can take individualized courses and tests anytime, anywhere.
    Kaplan University serves more than 59,000 online and campus-based students with more than 100 academic programs, including master’s bachelor’s and associate’s degrees. The University is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

Security professionals seeking to enroll in the program or with questions should contact the Brownyard Educational Center at 877-272-4501 or at info(at)brownyardu(dot)com.

Church of Scientology International Sponsors Workshop on Human Rights in Bulgaria

Church of Scientology International Sponsors Workshop on Human Rights in Bulgaria

Brussels (PRWEB) June 7, 2006

With Bulgaria’s January 2007 entry into the European Union approaching, a “Government & Religion” workshop was hosted by the Brussels-based Church of Scientology International European Public Affairs and Human Rights Office, concentrated on what is needed for Bulgaria to comply with European human rights standards.

In joining the EU, Bulgaria is expected to raise social standards to the level of other member nations. Prime among the concerns about Bulgaria have been the independence of its justice system and organized crime and corruption in the country. However, there are also human rights issues which must be addressed, such as freedom of expression, religious freedom, discrimination against national and ethnic minorities, and conditions in prisons and other institutions. These issues were the focus of this conference.

Mr. Krassimir Kanev, Chairman of the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee, opened the workshop with a presentation titled Human Rights in Bulgaria in the eve of the EU Accession. Mr. Kanev, who is also a member of the Executive Committee of the International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights, gave examples of human rights violations in Bulgaria. He stated that the process of accession to the European Union has contributed to some improvements, but stressed that the condition of patients in Bulgarian mental health institution remains an urgent problem to address, with reports of harsh conditions and arbitrary enforced commitment.

Mr. Petar Gramatikov, Member of the Board of the Help the Needy Foundation and Archdeacon of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church, presented a paper titled What difference does the United Nations and the European Union make in my Country and Region? which addressed human rights and religious freedom in the country. As part of this, he urged the Bulgarian Orthodox Church to revitalize inter-church relations and renew its membership in the World Council of Churches.

Co-organized by the Church of Scientology International and the European Foundation for Human Rights and Tolerance, this was the second in a series of workshops on the relationship between government and religion in Europe, and was attended by representatives of European institutions and Brussels-based diplomats from European and non-European countries concerned about safeguarding human rights and religious liberty in the European Union.

A Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) isued to block implementation of the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA) — European Connections & Tours, Inc. vs. Gonzalez, et al., No. 1:06-cv-00426-CC, U.S.D.C., N.D. Ga. (Temporary Restraining Order, March 07, 2006, Cooper, D.J.)

Crestview, FL (PRWEB) March 10, 2006

Citizens Against Dating Discrimination (CADD), U.S. international online dating Webmasters.

United States District Judge Clarence Cooper out of the Northern District of Georgia Atlanta Division issued the TRO on March 7, 2006, barring the government from enforcing the International Marriage Broker Act of 2005 against European Connections & Tours Inc. A Preliminary Injunction Hearing in this matter is now scheduled for March 20, 2006. (European Connections & Tours, Inc. vs. Gonzalez, et al., No. 1:06-cv-00426-CC, U.S.D.C., N.D. Ga.)

CADD’s stance is that IMBRA fails to protect immigrant women from abuse and also violates American men’s privacy rights in the process.

As one CADD member said:

“This law requires international dating webmasters to be policemen and collect background information on male members. The law requires this background information to be forwarded to any lady a male wants to meet at the introduction stage without regard to his privacy. Without the gentleman getting to know the lady,this information could be used as leverage by an unethical lady for financial gain and U.S. law has no jurisdiction in her country to stop her from spreading his personal information throughout the internet.”

CADD maintains that it is not fair for giant sites like Match.com to be exempt from doing background checks. Members of CADD are appalled at the law’s hypocrisy for protecting immigrant women from abuse by exempting larger corporate sites like Match.com and other similar corporate dating sites from having to abide by the law’s guidelines.

One CADD member said that we have asked the following question of feminist, politicians, and other supporters of IMBRA and yet to get an adequate answer:

“If the intent of IMBRA is to protect immigrant women from abuse, why exempt larger corporate sites with their huge male membership base of U.S. men interested in meeting immigrant women?”

Further elaboration by the same CADD member said:

“Immigrant women are just as likely to meet an abusive male on one of these larger exempted sites and maybe even more so since they have a larger male membership base than many of the smaller international sites combined”

In CADD’s research they found that Federal judges don’t often issue a TRO barring the enforcement of a federal law. CADD believes the court has shown a substantial likelihood of prevailing in this case on the merits of IMBRA being unconstitutional, unfair business practice, an invasion of male’s privacy and does not offer substantial proof that the law’s intent to protect immigrant women from abuse has merit without prejudice and equality under the law.

As one CADD member said:

“We have been working night and day to save our mom and pop websites. But, more importantly, to preserve our freedoms, liberties and the right to date whom we want without concerns that our personal information will be used as public record by citizens from other countries. It’s a tough law to fight because of popular buzz words like human trafficking, but we ask the politicians and lawmakers to look beyond the buzz words. Instead, look at the law’s prejudice and unjust implications to U.S. male citizens while at the same time it imposes stiff requirements on smaller international sites and exempts larger corporate sites with their huge male membership base.”

CADD’s other Public Release addressed many of our concerns about this law and even addressed a common sense solution at: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2006/3/prweb354100.htm CADD believes that once lawmakers read the law (it was passed on a simple undemocratic “voice vote” in the House and a “unanimous consent” vote by the Senate) it will be repealed and replaced with common sense legislation.

CADD believes that IMBRA cannot survive serious legal challenges or media scrutiny. As stated on page 9 of the certified statement by European Connections:

“The number of foreign women profiled who are listed on websites exempted by law such as Match.com, Yahoosingle.com and Friendfinder.com dwarf the total number of profiles listed by International Marriage Brokers worldwide. For example, I have performed a search at Friendfinder.com. I found 354,166 foreign and 553,976 women listed on their site. None of these women, whether foreign or national, are protected by the act.”

CADD believes the government should repeal IMBRA now, work on common sense laws to protect U.S. male’s privacy and provide practical solutions to protecting immigrant women from abuse without causing undo hardship to smaller international dating sites in favor of exempting larger sites from the same requirements. Until such time, CADD and its members will work hard to raise awareness about these issues.
