Overview

Security Management: An Introduction offers a fresh look into the world of security management. It addresses the nature, scope and history of security services, the essential elements of security, types of security organizations, regulation and professionalism, the impact of economic and social globalization, and the future of security management. The text: identifies criminal as well as non-criminal threats to individuals and organizations; confronts the legal issues associated with security management; outlines the process of risk management as well as security planning and program administration; and examines the security management triad of physical, personnel and information security. Investigations, criminal and business intelligence operations, reporting, and over 20 identifiable security environments, applications, and services in specific settings are discussed.

The text utilizes a unique approach as it presents management strategies for loss prevention as well as an overview of the security field. It incorporates the findings of the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS)/Webster University Education Symposium as well as the proceedings of the 1998 and 1999 ASIS Academic/Practitioner Symposiums. Although the ASIS symposium products are still works in progress, Security Management: An Introduction addresses and makes reference to the topics outlined in the 1998 ASIS recommendations for introduction to security courses for business students. This book may be used as a text in security management, criminal justice, or business courses or as a reference for security managers. Practitioners within specific security venues can use the book tofamiliarize themselves with other applications in the security industry.
