Introduction to Securityby Robert Fischer, Edward Halibozek, David Walters
Introduction to Security, Seventh Edition is a complete revision of the classic text. This edition addresses the latest trends, concerns, and issues in the security industry today. From equipment and new technologies to security design theories and security management practices, all the key fundamentals are covered. This comprehensive text begins with a new chapter on the chief issue of interest to security professionals today, the establishment and development of Homeland Security in the United States. Terrorism, now an area of principal concern for the security industry, is addressed in its own chapter that outlines the history and changes in global terrorism. Terrorism is also addressed throughout the book relative to its impact on cargo and travel security, potential areas of attack and target hardening techniques, and the use of current technologies to combat new threats. Traditional physical and guard security is covered in addition to new advances in the electronic and computer security areas including biometric security, access control, CCTV surveillance as well as growing computer security threats of identity theft and computer-facilitated fraud. With new and expanded chapters, Introduction to Security continues to provide the most comprehensive coverage of security issues for the student, while providing current information and detail for the experienced security professional.
