Principal Authors:

Robert Carotenuto, CPP, PCI, PSP, New York Botanical Garden

Scholars believe that the site of Colonia Clunia Suplicia (Clunia) is the most representative of all the archaeological ruins that have been found from the Roman period in the Northern Iberian Peninsula. The objective of this assessment was to identify those conditions that could create security vulnerabilities for the site and its resources, including people, assets, and activities.

This report provides a case study, including a physical security assessment of Clunia and its surrounding environs, along with a review of other historic sites in the region.

Funded by a grant from the ASIS Foundation and presented by the ASIS Cultural Properties Council.

Metrics Report

The research report Persuading Senior Management with Effective, Evaluated, Security Metrics was sponsored by the ASIS Foundation, in collaboration​ with the ASIS Defense and Intelligence Council, to add to the body of knowledge about security metrics and to empower security professionals to better assess and present metrics.  This report provides the project's findings, including its three practical, actionable products:

  1. The Security Metrics Evaluation Tool (Security M​ET), which security professionals can self-administer to develop, evaluate, and improve security metrics
  2. A library of metric descriptions, each evaluated according to the Security MET criteria
  3. Guidelines for effective use of security metrics to inform and persuade senior management, with an emphasis on organizational risk and return on investment
