Product Description

This one is a little more specific than our no.1. This is tailor made for anyone working with physical security, which basically means it’s tailor made for the absolute majority of people in the security business. We’ve all had our run-ins with various security setups, plans, assessments, risks and so on, and “Effective Physical Security” makes for the near perfect foundation to deal with all of that.

Security managers and risk assessors everywhere have their own ways of seeing things, and this book makes it possible for a replacement to wade through what the last one did, or for a brand new manager or operator or officer to understand the process and the requirements, and see straight through any bullshit that might have clogged the system. From a basic understanding of physical security through to the advanced lessons that we all need from time to time – “Effective Physical Security” has everything a new, or seasoned security professional needs to know about the physical aspects and the physical moves that can, should or must be made in a security plan.
