Description

Security for Business Professionals offers business executives and managers everything they need to set-up a security program, especially for those who don't have the resources to hire an in-house security staff. It can also be used for assessing the adequacy of an existing security program.

The book provides an overview of the key security objectives and challenges that managers face, such as how to measure the effectiveness of a security program and balance the costs and benefits. It also shows how to develop security procedures that conform to key regulatory requirements, and how to assess an organization's most important risks, vulnerabilities, and threats.

Security for Business Professionals addresses key physical and informational security concerns, including areas such as asset protection, loss prevention, and personnel security. It also discusses how to develop emergency and incident response plans, and concludes with suggested safety and security exercises and training recommendations.

Review Text

"...covers a plethora of security and emergency planning topics, elements of risk management, and discussions of specific discipline areas, augmented with suggested exercises and training recommendations."-- Security Management, Security for Business Professionals

"Plenty of good sense - perhaps even uncomfortably so - is offered... much of what he says for instance under 'considerations and staffing for security guard forces' applies to the UK and anywhere, besides the United States." - Professional Security Magazine Online, Sep 03, 2014
