New Standards for managing risks in organizations and their supply chains are changing the business landscape for security managers and practitioners. ASIS/ANSI standards for organizational resilience, physical asset protection, supply chain risk management, workplace violence, auditing, risk assessments and investigation provide new tools to manage risks. The private security operations series of standards, first published by ANSI and soon to be published in ISO, have already been adopted by the US and UK governments for contracting and several governments have stated they likewise require the standards for contract when published by ISO. What do you need to know to keep your business competitive?
