The Association of University Chief Security Officers, AUCSO, is the primary association for Security Professionals working in Universities, Colleges and Institutions of Higher and Further Education in the UK and Europe. Membership is available by institution, with each afforded the opportunity to nominate three representatives to the Association.
The Association provides a forum for its members to exchange knowledge, information and best practice relating to security management within the sector. Each year the Association holds a conference, exhibition and AGM for its members. Conferences are held at a different member University each year.
Members are linked through nine geographic regions, each of which hold their own local meetings and appoint a representative who sits on the Association Executive Committee.
