The industry-wide research initiative aims to develop best practice in managing security. It was launched today (Friday 30 May) and will provide a security blueprint for industry.
The Security Research Initiative is being managed by Professor Martin Gill of Perpetuity, a spin-out company from the University of Leicester. The first year (of three) will focus on the development of a security strategy, identifying good practices and will result in the production of a model document.
Professor Martin Gill commented: ‘From previous work we have conducted we know that all too often security is not guided by a strategy and this is one reason why some security professionals felt it had failed to achieve proper recognition within organisations, indeed some felt it was a marginalised function. By conducting studies and generating new insights we aim to help fill a major knowledge gap that will help improve understanding and perceptions of security.’
The SRI has come together with the support of the ASIS International, British Security Industry Association and The Security Institute. David Dickinson Chief Executive of the BSIA has noted: ‘This is a very important initiative that aims to add new insights and it has the support of some leading companies. The results have the potential to be very influential in guiding good practice.’
