Overview

Since the first edition of Security and Loss Prevention was published in 1983, much has changed in security and loss prevention considerations. In the past five years alone, security awareness and the need for added business continuity and preparedness considerations has been uniquely highlighted given events such as Katrina, 9/11, the formation of the Department of Homeland Security, and the increase in world terrorist events.
This edition of Security and Loss Prevention is fully updated and encompasses the breadth and depth of considerations involved in implementing general loss prevention concepts and security programs within an organization. The book provides proven strategies to prevent and reduce incidents of loss due to legal issues, theft and other crimes, fire, accidental or intentional harm from employees, as well as the many ramifications of corporate mismanagement. The new edition contains a brand new terrorism chapter, along with coverage on background investigations, protection of sensitive information, internal threats, and considerations at select facilities (nuclear, DoD, government and federal).

Author Philip Purpura once again demonstrates why students and professionals alike rely on this best-selling text as a timely, reliable resource.

- Covers the latest professional security issues surrounding Homeland Security and risks presented by threats of terrorism
- Recommended reading for ASIS International's prestigious CPP Certification
- Cases provide real-world applications
