This research report presents the findings of a broad survey of corporate security programs conducted by the Security Executive Council’s Security Leadership Research Institute (SLRI). The researchers' objective was to benchmark the state of the security industry in terms of organizational structure, budget, staff resources, board-level risk concerns, program drivers, and services provided. The level of responsibility each respondent reported for a list of 30 security programs or services is also compared across several organizational categories. This report can be used by security professionals for introspective analysis of the security team within their organizations, external review of the ways in which other organizations approach risk management, internal justification of security budgets and initiatives, and for performance metrics. Corporate Security Organizational Structure, Cost of Services and Staffing Benchmark is a part of Elsevier’s Security Executive Council Risk Management Portfolio, a collection of real world solutions and "how-to" guidelines that equip executives, practitioners, and educators with proven information for successful security and risk management programs.
