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.
