ESRM Board Initiative

ASIS International has launched an Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM) Board Initiative. The ESRM Board is tasked with infusing the ESRM methodology into the DNA of ASIS, its membership, and ultimately the security industry.

The ESRM Initiative has been working on creating an ESRM Maturity Assessment tool and v1 has been released!  The development team will be looking to make improvements and is looking for your feedback.  Please click the link below and check it out.

If you are building an ESRM based security organization, this will help you measure its progress and identify areas for improvement.

New to the idea of ESRM?  Click the link below and rate your organization against ESRM criteria.  It may give you ideas for your programs or create questions.

All feedback, feature requests, and questions about ESRM and the tool can be sent to [email protected]
