ASIS International has announced the release of the new Physical Asset Protection Standard.
Kenneth Herrle, a senior engineer and security expert at Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA), served as a member of the Technical Committee that developed the updated Standard, published Feb. 25.
“This Standard will serve as a valuable resource to physical security designers and practitioners at all levels,” Herrle said.
This revised Standard also includes the Facilities Physical Security Measures Guideline, providing everything needed to secure an organization’s physical assets in one, easy-to-use resource.
The 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, according to ASIS. It also provides guidance on the identification, application, and management of physical protection systems (PPS) to safeguard an organization’s assets, such as people, property, and information.
