Encyclopedia of Security Management: Techniques and Technology
John J. Fay
Butterworth-Heinemann, 1993 - Business & Economics - 792 pages
To be truly qualified generalists, professional security practitioners need an authoritative reference source to help keep them informed. Encyclopedia of Security Management is a complete reference for security managers, encompassing topics in administration, specialized security functions, and technology. Continuous learning is required of security managers who are determined to stay current. The area of electronic technology, with its myriad of security applications, has practically exploded in recent years. The product of this rapid evolution is specialization, which can be both positive and negative. The usual experience of a security practitioner is to spend formative years in a relatively specialized area, such as supervising contract guard services, conducting investigations, or installing alarm systems. When promoted to a managerial level, the individual brings to the new job a limited, one dimensional viewpoint. With coverage of the A to Z topics concerning security managers, this volume describes the basics of each topic and the information needed to apply this knowledge to any reader's job, business, or industry. In addition, the book's sample policies, procedures, guides, forms, checklists and drawings can be easily converted for a security manager's use.
