ASIS International has published a new standard, which it has developed in conjunction with RIMS.
Entitled Risk Assessment ANSI/ASIS/RIMS RA.1-2015, the standard “provides guidance on developing and sustaining a coherent and effective risk assessment program including principles, managing an overall risk assessment program, and performing individual risk assessments, along with confirming the competencies of risk assessors and understanding biases.”
Risk Assessment provides guidance for:

- Conducting risk assessments for risk and resilience based management system standards for the disciplines of risk, resilience, security, crisis, business continuity, and recovery management.
