Product Description

New editions of this one crops up often, and that, friends, is a good thing. Yes, it might get frustrating to see that there’s a new edition just as you think you’ve got the last one under control, but don’t despair. The new editions are necessary – if they hadn’t shown up, this book most certainly wouldn’t have made the list, just as a lot of other once good security texts got cut because they simply aren’t up to speed. Who would have thought biometrics would be a thing fifteen years ago? Sci-Fi writers, perhaps. Security writers? Not so much.

Introduction to Security is an essential text for anyone with half a mind to learn about security, and even if you’ve been in the biz for a couple of decades, this one needs to be right there on your desk, be it at home or at work. Available as a Kindle version (meaning you can use your whatever kind of Pad to read it), or hardcover – take your pick. From bouncer to security officer, security manager or law enforcement – you should all read this one. We have (and the 7th and the 8th editions…) and this thing just keep topping out all our lists.
