About us

What you should know about us!

For 50 years we have been a partner in both private company and public authority security matters.

Occupational safety is a high-quality asset, a fact which is often unfortunately realized only when undiscovered or underestimated risks have led to business disruptions which damage both the company’s turnover and image.

As early as 1968, this realization led initiators like Dr. Hanns-Martin Schleyer of today's Daimler AG, as well as companies such as Robert Bosch GmbH, IBM Germany, IHK Stuttgart, to found the "Landesstelle für Betriebsschutz (LfB)" (Society for Industrial Security), which was the first association of its kind in Germany. In 1987, the "LfB" was renamed "Verband für Sicherheit in der Wirtschaft Baden-Wuerttemberg e. V. (VSW-BW)" (Baden-Wuerttemberg Association for Security in Industry and Commerce). This was in order to align with other national associations that had been founded which, together with the umbrella associations DIHK, BDI and BDA, formed the ASW – “Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Sicherheit der Wirtschaft (Working Group for Economic Security)”, which was merged and renamed in Berlin in 2015. In addition to the collection of information, the main task of ASW was and is to represent the security interests of the German economy at both Federal and EU level relative to political and central security authorities, as well as the media. In October 2016, VSW-BW „Verband für Sicherheit in der Wirtschaft Baden Wuerttemberg e. V.“ became ASW-BW „Allianz für Sicherheit in der Wirtschaft Baden Wuerttemberg e. V.“ (Baden-Wuerttemberg Association for Security in Industry and Commerce).

The topics and tasks of ASW-BW are almost always explosive and controversial, but we experience daily how necessary it is - also for you - to deal with safety-relevant questions and problems.

ASW-BW meets its mission: "... to advise and assist companies and corporations in all issues of security relevant to the economy ..." through:

1. Education and Training, Seminars

When the "LfB"was founded, cost as well as quality advantages were seen in the implementation of joint training and education. Through inter-company training and further education, it was not only possible to achieve cost savings, but also to define uniform quality standards for training courses and to be able to attract the best technical and pedagogical speakers from member companies and security authorities."

Training is still one of the core areas of ASW-BW. The association also carries out in-house training sessions on request, in which the topics are adapted to the specific needs of the customer and thus, for example, also saving on travel and accommodation costs for participants or employees might otherwise be incurred.

For this reason, ASW-BW is one of the few training institutes to have introduced a QM system that has been in line with DIN EN ISO 9001 for many years and offers AZAV specialist measures certification that reflects our high-quality standards.

The realization that outside of normal working hours, large production and/or administration buildings housing immense assets are left solely to the factory security staff, led to the qualification "Certified Plant Specialist (IHK)" was introduced in 1982 and then replaced in 2006 by the "Gepruefte Schutz- und Sicherheitskraft (IHK) – (Certified Safety and Security Specialist)". Since 1994, the ASW-BW has also offered the demanding "Werkschutzmeister” (Master of Company Security) advanced training and, since 2003, the "Certified Master for Protection and Safety (IHK)". Within a period of two years, the prospective masters will gain comprehensive work-based knowledge of factory security practices, safety technology, law, controlling, psychology, occupational safety and environmental protection over approximately 1000 lessons.

2. Consultation and analysis

Upon request, both members and non-members can receive assistance with security related issues. The consultations are carried out either by employees of the association's local office or by experts from ASW-BW member companies. The range of advice in the form of safety and vulnerability analyses covers all "security" and "safety" areas.

3. Security Information

The ASW-BW continuously receives and procures permanent up-to-date safety information, which is evaluated and selected according to urgency as well the recipient group. If necessary, information from member companies, the ASW or police, the “Landeskriminalamt (LKA)” (State Office for Criminal Investigation) and the “Landesamt für Verfassungsschutz (LfV)” (State Office for the Protection of the Constitution) will be sent immediately by e-mail to those of the approximately 240 member companies affected by such information and also published either in the open or members-only area of the ASW-BW homepage or database.

The regular, free information service for members consists of the nationally published association magazines "PROTECTOR & WIK - Zeitschrift für Wirtschaft, Kriminalität und Sicherheit" (Journal of Economics, Crime and Security) and "KES - Zeitschrift für Kommunikations- und EDV-Sicherheit" (Journal for Communication and IT Security). Safety information and seminar offers are also available at any time at www.asw-bw.com.

Regional and national "ERFA circles" convene several times a year to discuss subject-related issues and exchange operational experiences.
