tranzform-security is hosted by the ATRiM Group.

It is the ‘commons’¬† for like-minded security professionals and practitioners to discuss and implement security transformation to learning cultures.

What the ATRiM Group does

The ATRiM Group is as a terror and other crime threat risk assessment service for critical infrastructure that is based in science. We think about security problems in terms of exogenous [outside the system] threats such as acts of terror and endogenous [inside the system] threats such as occupational fraud, theft, corruption, workplace sabotage and workplace violence. We recognize these challenged cannot neatly be placed in silos and that dealigh with security, because it is about people using technology, is not linear and can be “messy”.

Our “primacy of the whole” tools include 3rd Generation Crime Prevention through Environmental Design and applying prevention science strategies drawn from psychology, neuroscience, social physics, human evolutionary biology, behavioral economics and other inter-related scientific insights.

As prevention science practitioners, we strive to keep current with science and to introduce this science  to critical infrastructure risk management, audit, investigations and security in practical, meaningful ways.
