ASIS, (ISC)² and ISACA to collaborate on new standard
- Published: Wednesday, 09 March 2016 09:48
ASIS International, (ISC)² and ISACA have signed an MOU to develop a Security Awareness American National Standard. This guidance standard will address the intersections of physical, cyber and information security management to help organizations of all sizes maximize protection of people, property, and assets.
Given the convergence of risks and fading boundaries between physical, cyber, and information security, it is essential that organizations of all types and sizes have the best tools at their disposal to promote security awareness from a holistic perspective.
The Standard will focus on cross-disciplinary management measures, as well as awareness and training programs to help organizations and their supply chains prepare for and minimize the likelihood of an undesirable event, as well as respond to and recover from a security incident.
ASIS, (ISC)² and ISACA will form a joint technical committee and working group to develop the standard, soliciting input from security experts around the globe. The committee will operate under ASIS’s ANSI-accredited process to develop an American National Standard that can be applied anywhere in the world.
Technical committee formation is expected to begin in April.For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
