CRISP Reports

Featured Report

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.

About CRISP reports

Connecting Research in Security to Practice (CRISP) reports provide practical, researched-based solu​tions to help security professionals effectively tackle a wide-range of security issues. Readers can integrate recommended actions with their own existing or planned security programs. ​

CRISP reports are sister publications to those produced by Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) of the U.S. Department of Justice. COPS reports, which can be accessed at, focus on policing; CRISP reports focus on security.
