ASIS Launches New Organizational Resilience Software Suite

Alexandria, Va 2010-09-24

ASIS International is pleased to launch the Organizational Resilience Management Software (ORMS) suite, a unique series of online tools to help organizations address the risks of disruptive events. Developed in partnership with Easy2solve, the five products range from basic support to highly sophisticated resilience functionality.

"In today's globally connected, 24/7 business environment, organizations face intense pressure to quickly, efficiently, and effectively recover from adversity," said Michael Stack, Chief Executive Officer, ASIS International. "These tools can help an organization enhance its resilience through security, preparedness and continuity strategies in line with the ANSI/ASIS Organizational Resilience Standard, providing a cost-effective, business-friendly approach to risk and resilience management."

The software helps private and public sector entities implement the ANSI/ASIS Organizational Resilience Standard, generate necessary documentation, and identify opportunities for improvement in security, preparedness and continuity programs. This will be a valuable tool for any organization interested in participating in the Department of Homeland Security's Private Sector Preparedness Program (PS-Prep).

The five products include:

ORMS Toolkit - Delivers the full content from the ASIS OR Standard, including a self-assessment conformance questionnaire and an implementation maturity model.

ORMS Entry Level - Includes the Toolkit version plus risk analysis, business impact analysis, and risk treatments, together with resilience and response planning. Suitable for small and medium-sized organizations.

ORMS Intermediate - Includes the Entry Level version plus deployment of manpower resources and alternate asset planning. Suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises and larger organizations with some resilience/continuity experience.

ORMS Professional - Includes the Intermediate version plus financial resources, resilience improvement measures, and a comprehensive incident manager. Suitable for larger organizations that have dedicated expertise in-house.

ORMS Consultant - Includes the Professional version plus the ability to handle multiple data sets for multiple clients. Suitable for consultants responsible for the resilience needs of multiple clients or organizations with multiple businesses within one group.

With more than 12,000 customers in over 130 countries, Easy2solve has considerable experience in developing practical and affordable business management tools for the U.S. and international markets. "ASIS International's reputation and its leadership in security standards and guidelines development made it the perfect fit for this initiative. We are extremely honored to work together on this project." notes Easy2solve Managing Director Terry Hewett.
