What is SABRE?

SABRE is a security risk management standard for new and existing buildings, infrastructure assets, and managed space. The scheme provides the industry with a framework that can be used during the design, construction, and operation of assets to achieve better security outcomes and return on investment.

SABRE allows organisations to evidence their commitment to security and communicate their ability to manage security risks. This provides valuable assurance to tenants, insurers, investors, regulators, planning authorities, and other interested parties.

The SABRE scheme is jointly operated by The Security Institute and BRE Group.
