The development of an organised, systematic approach to managing security is an essential task for both States and organisations to meet their quality assurance and risk management obligations.

Developing an approach that embeds security management into the day-to-day activities of an organisation and encourages a positive security culture is at the heart of the Security Management System (SeMS) approach.
A Security Management System (SeMS) is there to proactively develop and maintain an effective oversight and quality assurance process within your organisation. It is about taking a systemic approach to managing security risks in ways that serve to instil security in the routine daily activities of an organisation and indeed, its very culture.
To help States and organisations proactively develop and maintain effective oversight and quality assurance processes, we can assist with the design, development and implementation of the entire Security Management System.
