ASIS International has announced the availability of its latest standard. The new Physical Asset Protection Standard replaces and consolidates the Security Management System: Physical Asset Protection and the Facilities Physical Security Measures Guideline.
The Physical Asset Protection Standard costs $70.00 for non-members of ASIS and $35.00 for members.
ASIS says that this Standard uses ‘a management systems approach to provide guidance for assisting organizations in the design, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and maintenance of a physical asset protection (PAP) program. It also provides guidance on the identification, application, and management of physical protection systems (PPS) to safeguard an organization's assets (e.g., people, property, and information)’.
ASIS has also announced that its updated Business Continuity Management Guideline will be released later in Spring 2021.
