Article Out Loud - Security Standards to Help Keep Federal Facilities Safe

An Article Out Loud Flashback from the Domestic Preparedness Journal, August 04, 2010.

In 2010, the Department of Homeland Security released two new publications to help federal officials throughout the country tighten the physical security of the office buildings, warehouses, and hundreds of thousands of other taxpayer-funded federal facilities entrusted to their care. This 2010 article describes those standards, one of which was incorporated into and one that was superseded by the 2021 edition of The Risk Management Process for Federal Facilities: An Interagency Security Committee Standard (RMP).
