The Certified Protection Professional (CPP) designation is acknowledged as the security profession's highest recognition of practitioners.  The "Board Certification in Security Management" is awarded to security professionals who have met prescribed standards of performance, knowledge, and conduct with stringent eligibility requirements consisting of education and work experience qualifications including employment in a security profession in a responsible-charge position.  Ongoing professional development is required to maintain this certification.  One of approximately 4,500 active CPP's, Mr. Canaan was awarded this prestigious credential in June 1997.  The CPP is administered by the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS), the preeminent international organization for security professionals, with 32,000 members worldwide.

The Certified Forensic Litigation Consultant (CFLC) was established by the Forensic Expert Witness Association (FEWA) in 2014 for FEWA professional members who have met the eligibility criteria established requiring significant participation in FEWA activities and completion of educational courses in the subjects of forensic analysis, litigation consulting, and expert witnessing. 

The ASIS certification program is the first and only program of its kind to be awarded a coveted designation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology (SAFETY) Act of 2002. The ASIS certification program has also been awarded accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the U.S. member of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). This prestigious endorsement confirms that ASIS global certification programs adhere to the highest professional standards. The purpose of the SAFETY Act is to ensure that the threat of liability does not deter manufacturers of anti-terrorism technologies from developing and commercializing new products or services that could significantly reduce the risks or effects of terrorist events.
