The Full Story

SRMBOK results from a strategic partnership between RMIA, JBS, and the government. SRMBOK has been designed to significantly improve professionalism and enhance community and organizational resilience. The partners have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars, intellectual property, and passion without expectation of commercial return to make this contribution to

our community.


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.
