The ASIS Commission on Standards and Guidelines has released a draft of the Facilities Physical Security Measures Guideline. The purpose of this new guideline is to describe the main types of physical security measures that can be applied to minimize the security risks at a facility. ASIS International is the preeminent organization for security management professionals worldwide. The guideline is available for a 45-day public review and comment period.
The Facilities Physical Security Measures Guideline assists in the identification of physical security measures that can be applied at facilities to safeguard or protect an organization’s assets—people, property and information. It is not aimed at a specific occupancy, but facilities and buildings in general.
ASIS uses a voluntary, non-proprietary and consensus-based process to write its guidelines, and relies not only upon the knowledge, experience and expertise of ASIS members, but also upon those nonmembers who volunteer their time to the guideline creation process.
