About the Standard

pubcover-2447-sa.jpg Every organization needs to protect its assets, including people, property, and information. A physical asset protection (PAP) program can provide that protection. It encompasses a systematic approach to identify threats and vulnerabilities an organization faces so that they can be addressed.

The PAP should consider the needs and expectations of the organization and its stakeholders and it should be a dynamic program that can be modified as the operating environment, staff, and organizational objectives change. In addition, the program requires continual monitoring and evaluation so it can improve. Top management buy-in is crucial to success.
