Foundation Research

​​The ASIS Foundation supports the development of research-based resources that increase effectiveness and efficiency in security management. We work with industry, academic, and government thought leaders to investigate and research specific security challenges, identify gaps in knowledge, and develop practical, solutions-based reports.

Our research program is intended to deepen security-related studies of contemporary threats, best practices, and regulations.  The Foundation funds original  research that produces actionable findings our members can put into practice to do their jobs more effectively. 

We are actively seeking proposals for our next round of research grant funding.  Learn more about our funding and application process.
