About Certis

Evolution of Certis

Certis started in 1958 as the Guard and Escort Unit under the Police Force, and became a statutory board known as “The Commercial & Industrial Security Corporation” (CISCO) thereafter.

Incorporated on 1 June 2005 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Temasek Holdings, Certis has always been recognised as CISCO, the leading physical security provider in Singapore that secures key installations and the key player in Singapore’s cash ecosystem. As a member of the global security community, Certis has been admitted into the International Security Ligue since 2008.

Backed by 60 years of experience in rich physical security heritage, deep market insights and patented technology innovations, Certis is a trusted advanced integrated security services provider for businesses around the globe.
