Building Security: New Federal Standards Hold Promise, But Could Be Strengthened to Better Protect Leased Space
DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 32 pages
The fed. government's reliance on leased space underscores the need to physically secure this space and help safeguard employees, visitors, and gov┐t. assets. In April 2010 the Interagency Security Comm., comprised of 47 fed. agencies and departments, issued Physical Security Criteria for Fed. Facilities (the 2010 standards) which supersede previous ISC standards. This report: (1) identifies challenges that exist in protecting leased space; and (2) examines how the 2010 standards address these challenges. To conduct this work, the auditor interviewed fed. officials, four fed. departments selected as case studies based on their large square footage of leased space, and the Fed. Protective Service. Illustrations. This is a print on demand report.
