- Education – Scholarship and grant opportunities for those pursuing security careers
- Research – We conduct timely, security-related research on contemporary threats, best practices, and regulations providing valuable and actionable knowledge for the profession.
Produced in partnership with BOMA International (BOMA) and the Security Industry Association (SIA), Intelligent Building Management Systems: Guidance for Protecting Organizations provides a framework for decision-makers to assign a risk-based criticality or impact to their building and asks relevant security questions to develop appropriate mitigation strategies.
The guidance is based on original research that provides an exhaustive overview of identified intelligent building critical vulnerabilities and mitigation strategies.
Scouting the Future
This innovative research initiative identifies seven key change drivers impacting the security profession. Understanding the implications of these changes will allow leaders to better navigate the evolving environment and develop effective strategies for a new, emerging future.
The insights generated will inform the Foundation's research agenda and the ASIS content strategy to meet future member needs. Each change driver represents an area where change is occurring most rapidly and could have the largest impact. To learn more about each topic, please click on the links below.
CPP Accelerator Program

Archaeological Site of COLONIA CLUNIA SULPICA Penalba de Castro, Burgos, Spain

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.

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