ASIS launch its Security Risk Assessment Standard

ASIS International announced the launch of an American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-approved standard that is dedicated to security risk assessments.

The ASIS Security Risk Assessment (SRA) Standard has been revised and designed to change how organisations evaluate and manage security risks.

Developed by a team of experienced security professionals, the ASIS SRA Standard provides an updated and forward-looking comprehensive and systematic approach to identifying, analysing, and assessing security risks.

Jennifer Holcomb, PE, PMP, PSP, CPP, CPD, ASIS International’s SRA Technical Committee Co-Chair, said: “The ASIS Security Risk Assessment Standard is the result of extensive collaboration and expertise from a diverse group of leading security professionals with expertise in conducting security risk assessments. This standard outlines a systematic approach to security risk assessment, empowering organizations to proactively identify and address vulnerabilities, which strengthens their security posture. I am privileged to have contributed to this important initiative.”

With its emphasis on best practices, transparency, and continual improvement, the ASIS SRA Standard is poised to become the go-to resource for security professionals worldwide.

Sue Carioti, CAE, CStd, Vice President, Certification, Standards, ASIS International, said: “We are excited to introduce the ASIS Security Risk Assessment Standard, which is a culmination of years of expertise and industry collaboration. With security risks evolving at an unprecedented pace, it is vital for organizations to have a robust framework in place to assess and mitigate these risks effectively. The ASIS SRA Standard provides a comprehensive roadmap for navigating the complexities of modern security challenges.”
