ASIS Announces Supply Chain Risk Management Standard

ASIS International has released a new standard to help organizations address operational risks in their supply chains, including risks to tangible and intangible assets.

Developed by a global, cross-disciplinary technical team and in partnership with the Supply Chain Security Council, theSupply Chain Risk Management: A Compilation of Best Practices Standard (SCRM) will serve as a practitioner’s guide to SCRM and associated processes for the management of risks within the organization and its end-to-end supply chain. This guidance Standard is a compilation of current best practices. It presents a generic approach to risk and resilience management that is applicable to all types of risk and all types of organizations. View the Executive Summary(PDF). ASIS members get one free download.

Supply chain risk management is vital for organizations that rely on extended operations, both internal and external, for their success. It involves the assessment and control of risk events at all points in an end-to-end supply chain, from sources of raw materials to end use by customers and consumers.

“In today’s global economy, all organizations have critical dependencies and interdependencies. Therefore, to build a resilient organization it is essential to understand the organization’s supply chain and how risks within the organization and its supply chain impact the achievement of objectives,” says Dr. Marc H. Siegel, commissioner of the ASIS Global Standards Initiative. “This is the first standard to provide practical guidance, based on the experiences of both large and small organizations, about managing risks in their supply chain to increase their resilience capacity and create value.”

The SCRM Standard will help practitioners anticipate, prevent, protect, mitigate, manage, respond, and recover from potentially undesirable and disruptive events, as well as identify opportunities. However, the best strategy for addressing risk events will be determined by the organization’s context of operations, its risk appetite, and results of risk assessments. Adoption of this standard should build on rather than supplant existing specialized risk programs.

Virtualization and Data Center Security: What You Need to Know for 2014

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
