About GSRMA

Who We Are

We are an all-volunteer, member-driven organization of practitioners who are passionate about advancing risk management-based principles across Cyber, IT, and Physical security disciplines.

Our founders have had first-hand experience adopting risk-management principles during their careers. With that came a realization there is a pressing need for:

  • New thought leadership
  • More fearless approaches to address vital enterprise security risk topics

So with a vision of a future where risk principles are embraced across security disciplines, the Global Security Risk Management Alliance was born.

We drive awareness, adoption and development of E/SRM methods — across all industries where reducing risk to people and things, intellectual property and data, or operations and supply chains is a strategic priority to enable the business.

GSRMA Story

Our Mission

The Alliance strives to provide an emerging and collective global view of the management of all security risk. By recognizing the nuances and degree of risk that various threats pose to different organizations, the Alliance will analyze distinct threat landscapes, share perspective, and enhance the effectiveness of managing security at the appropriate level for the enterprise.

Our Vision

To create a forum for the advancement of security risk management through the organic and deliberate sharing and collaboration of thought leadership in security and business practices across the enterprise including cybersecurity, information security, and physical security.

Business Meeting

Why We Care

There’s a paradigm shift afoot in the security profession. We’ve seen it coming. And we’re witnessing it happening across cyber and physical security. Why?

  • The global landscape is changing
  • Risks are evolving
  • Technology enables even more rapid transformation
  • Boards are taking interest

Progressive companies rely more on security leaders as key advisers on risk management in the enterprise. Across cyber and physical security disciplines.

So they’re demanding leaders who thoroughly know the business and industry in which they operate. This requires a new breed of security leader, with broader risk frameworks.

Created in 2015 by real-life security pioneers, we’ve been helping today’s practitioners embrace tomorrow’s E/SRM concepts.
