The Full Story

SRMBOK results from a strategic partnership between RMIA, JBS, and the Australian Government. SRMBOK has been created to provide a body of knowledge for security risk management professionalism and enhance community and organizational resilience.


And the book

SRMBOK has been developed by industry and subject matter experts to integrate security practice areas and methodologies in a single source toolkit and reference guide for consultants, managers and practitioners. SRMBOK was developed through strategically focused R&D to integrate existing better practice from a range of management disciplines and provide new insights into a framework containing:

  • Standard descriptions for security risk management processes

  • A framework of relationships among the standard processes

  • Standard metrics to measure process performance

  • Management practices that produce best-in-class performance

  • Standard alignment to features and functionality

SRMBOK achieves the convergence, synergy, synthesis, and integration of generally accepted better practice from a range of management disciplines, including ISO31000:2018 Risk Management Standard and unclassified elements of Australian, United Kingdom, and United States Government SRM Frameworks.


The SRMBOK integration framework and security risk assessment methodology integrate a range of models, including the Carver Methodology for Target Analysis and Vulnerability Assessment, FEMA426 (Mitigation of Potential Terrorist Attacks Against Buildings), HB167 Security Risk Management Handbook, Capability Maturity Model, ISO28000 Supply Chain Security, Supply- Chain Reference model (SCOR), Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), Six Sigma, ISO9001, PRINCE2, Balanced Scorecard, Procurement Frameworks, and the ISO27000 series.

It takes a team to write a body of knowledge

SRMBOK was developed by practitioners who donated their time and knowledge for the profession's advancement rather than their own personal gain. A special thanks must go to the Risk Management Institution of Australasia (RMIA) and Jakeman Business Solutions (JBS), which provided the lead authors and project managers to compile the numerous articles and comments received and financially underwrote SRMBOK.

A few people also rendered assistance far beyond the call of duty, and we owe a special debt to Bob Ross, Jason Brown, Konrad Buczynski, Spanky Kirsch, Lee Hutchison, and Don Williams for their countless comments, suggestions, and honest feedback.
