ASIS releases physical asset protection standard08-Jun-2012
organisation ASIS International has released a new set of standard
for protection of an organisation's physical assets, including
"people, property and information".
Developed by a technical committee comprised of more than 80 members from 17 countries, the standard provides a comprehensive management approach to identify, apply, and manage physical security measures in order to safeguard both tangible and intangible assets such as brand, reputation and information, according to ANSI.
"The Physical Asset Protection Standard offers a framework for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving physical protection systems," it said.
ANSI will run a workshop entitled Implementing the New Physical Asset Protection Standard on September 11, 2012, to coincide with its annual seminar and exhibition in Philadelphia, US.
The standard (free for ASIS members) is available for download through the organisation's website.
