​Expanding the Security Body of Knowledge

The ASIS Foundation Research Council seeks proposals related to security studies topics for both CRISP reports and original research.  We are looking for research that can strengthen the body of knowledge and enhance professional security global practices. For 2016-2017, the ASIS Foundation Research Council's particular interests in security studies include topics such as (but not limited to) the below list:

  • loss prevention
  • cyber crime
  • security intelligence analysis
  • crisis management
  • investigations
  • security leadership & management
  • global economic crime
  • critical national infrastructure
  • homeland security
  • law enforcement and private security relationships
  • women in security
  • human trafficking (child exploitation)

Other topics of research on security studies are also valuable, so please feel free to send comments and suggestions. The ASIS Foundation Research Council is interested in building sound, evidence based knowledge of interventions or programs that work in a variety of organizations under varied circumstances. ​​​​​______________________________________________________
