9780123944368: Security Science: The Theory and Practice of Security

Security Science integrates the multi-disciplined practice areas of security into a single structured body of knowledge, where each chapter takes an evidence-based approach to one of the core knowledge categories. The authors give practitioners and students the underlying scientific perspective based on robust underlying theories, principles, models or frameworks. Demonstrating the relationships and underlying concepts, they present an approach to each core security function within the context of both organizational security and homeland security. The book is unique in its application of the scientific method to the increasingly challenging tasks of preventing crime and foiling terrorist attacks. Incorporating the latest security theories and principles, it considers security from both a national and corporate perspective, applied at a strategic and tactical level. It provides a rational basis for complex decisions and begins the process of defining the emerging discipline of security science.

  • A fresh and provocative approach to the key facets of security
  • Presentation of theories and models for a reasoned approach to decision making
  • Strategic and tactical support for corporate leaders handling security challenges
  • Methodologies for protecting national assets in government and private sectors
  • Exploration of security’s emerging body of knowledge across domains

About the Author:

Clifton L. Smith, PhD is a retired Associate Professor of Security Science in the School of

Engineering, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Western Australia. He developed their Security

Science programs (BS, MS, and PhD) beginning in the 1980s, and helped establish their

imaging, security knowledge and understanding, biometric imaging, and security education.

Professor Smith has consulted in Australia, Southeast Asia, UK and India on security training

programs, physical security audits, CCTV and infrared surveillance techniques, security lighting

evaluation, and perimeter technology testing.

David J Brooks, PhD, is Senior Lecturer and research leader at Edith Cowan University,

Australia, teaching and researching Security Science. Dr. Brooks specializes in security

knowledge structure, security risk management and security technology. Past positions include

the Australian Defence Force West Australian Infrastructure Plant Contract Manager, Senior

Security Consultant with AMLEC House consulting group and others, and military service in the

security decay, defeat testing of security technology, use of resilience as an aid to National

Security Vetting and Building Management System vulnerabilities.

Review:

"Two Australian academics...examine what evidence based information is available. The book, intended as a text, is likely to appeal to English-reading audiences outside of the US. Security practitioners here likely will find valuable insights applicable to security operations for use abroad... Smith and Brooks deliver an interesting read."--Security Letter, April 2014 "Security practitioners who have wanted a text that links security management principles with the proven concepts of the scientific method need look no further...This text is critical to security managers at any level who wish to enhance their role in their organization."--SecurityManagement.com, February 2014 "Proclaiming to establish the knowledge domain of security on a scientific and professional foundation, Smith...and Brooks...develop a theoretical construct for understanding the concept and management of security and the management of security risk that is based on a hierarchy of concepts and principles associated with asset protection and the processes to achieve asset protection."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
