Contemporary Security Management, 3rd Edition teaches security professionals how to operate an efficient security department and how to integrate smoothly with other groups inside and outside their own organizations. Fay demonstrates the specifics of security management: * how to organize, plan, develop and manage a security operation. * how to identify vulnerabilities. * how to determine the protective resources required to offset threats. * how to implement all necessary physical and IT security measures. Security professionals share the responsibility for mitigating damage, serving as a resource to an Emergency Tactical Center, assisting the return of business continuity, and liaising with local response agencies such as police and fire departments, emergency medical responders, and emergency warning centers. At the organizational level, the book addresses budgeting, employee performance, counseling, hiring and termination, employee theft and other misconduct, and offers sound advice on building constructive relationships with organizational peers and company management. * Full treatment of the convergence of physical security and cyber security. * Discusses both public and private sector roles, as well as the increasingly common privatizing of government functions, to reflect current challenges. * Includes new experience-based exercises to sharpen security management and strategic skills and reinforce the content of each chapter.

Review:

"Managing security for a large or small business can be daunting-especially in today's environment, where the security manager must manage people, budgets, information, emergencies, acts of terrorism or violence, and much more. Set up as a textbook, Contemporary Security Management contains proven methods for both students and security managers to use in their daily work. The book is well organized and contains useful worksheets, forms, checklists, and review questions. Of particular note is the section covering management structure and personnel management. Where does the security department fit? How can you maximize effectiveness? How should you manage people and motivate them? These questions are thoroughly answered in this text. The book offers readers excellent instruction in management. The book is highly recommended as a textbook and reference that will be useful for some time."--Security Management
