The State of Security Convergence in the United States, Europe, and India

The Executive Summary from the ASIS Foundation study sponsored by Alert Enterprises describes the relationship between cybersecurity, physical security, and business continuity functions in organizations and the extent to which the three functions work independently, two of the three are converged, or all three are completely converged. The research also explores necessary success factors in creating a high-functioning integrated enterprise risk model, from both organizational and strategic perspectives.

Using survey responses from more than 1,000 security leaders in the U.S., Europe, and India, plus more than 20 follow-up interviews, the study provides a ‘current state’ of the relationship among physical security, cybersecurity, and business continuity.
