ALEXANDRIA, VA – ASIS International has shared the release of its new American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-approved standard dedicated to security risk assessments.

The ASIS Security Risk Assessment (SRA) Standard has been revised and designed to change how organizations assess and manage security risks. Noting it was developed by a team of seasoned security professionals, ASIS said their SRA Standard offers an up-to-date and forward-looking comprehensive and systematic approach to identifying, analyzing, and evaluating security risks, ultimately empowering organizations to safeguard their assets, mitigate threats, and enhance resilience.

“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,” stated ASIS International’s SRA Technical Committee Co-Chair, Jennifer Holcomb, PE, PMP, PSP, CPP, CPD. “By outlining a systematic approach to security risk assessment, this standard empowers organizations to proactively identify and address vulnerabilities, ultimately strengthening their security posture. I am honored to have contributed to this important initiative."

Key features of the ASIS SRA Standard include a comprehensive scope that ensures that all aspects of the assessment process are thoroughly covered. It also establishes the SRA context, prepares SRA activities, guides conducting SRA activities and post-SRA activities, and provides a template for reporting findings and recommendations.

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

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

The ASIS Security Risk Assessment Standard is now available as an eBook and in print.
