BS 16000 Security management – Strategic and operational guidelines
“While there are many standards that cover specific security topics, such as alarms, CCTV and screening, BS 16000 provides a much needed generic, security management framework.
BS 16000 provides the vocabulary and basic principles of security management, and demonstrates how security can be embedded in an organization, and discusses security solutions – including physical, technical, information, procedural and personnel solutions.
The new standard includes guidance on:
- Developing a security framework
- Risk assessment
- Understanding your organization’s context
- Implementing and monitoring the security programme
Even if you have already implemented security solutions in your organization, BS 16000 can help you monitor and review your security management and identify ways to improve it. BS 16000 complements existing management standards including ISO 27001, ISO 14001, ISO 22301, ISO 22313, ISO 31000 and ISO 9001. As a generic, high-level guidance standard, it will be invaluable to anyone responsible for aspects of security in any organization – large or small, public or private. BS 16000 will help to support your organization’s viability, productivity, reputation, resilience and sustainability.”
