Things to look forward to:

ASIS just released a new set of guidelines: the Facilities Physical Security Measures Guideline! Am I excited? Yeah, I'm excited! Why? Because I'm a physical security nerd, that's why. Some of us have to exist, after all. I'm still cooler than Marc Weber Tobias.

According to the press release:

The guideline assists in the identification of physical security measures that can be applied at facilities to safeguard or protect an organization’s assets—people, property and information. It outlines eight main categories of physical security measures used to protect facilities: physical barriers; physical entry and access control; security lighting; intrusion detection systems; video surveillance; security personnel; security policies and procedures; and crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED). The emerging field of security convergence is also addressed.

Makes you all tingly, don't it?

I ordered a hard copy, because trying to open a .pdf has been making my computer choke, sputter, and die lately. Hard copies are back-ordered, of course. Shipping is, like, seven bucks. Seriously? I order entire books from Amazon that ship for less than $7. With hard covers, even.

Looking forward to seeing it.

Ari, I'm having trouble locating this document on their site. Can you provide a more specific link? (I can open the PDF. Will print and send you a copy if you'd like. :-)
