Hurry - Only 3 left in stock!
Security is a paradox. It is often viewed as intrusive, unwanted, a hassle, or something that limits personal, if not professional, freedoms. However, if we need security, we often feel as if we can never have enough. Security Management: A Critical Thinking Approach provides security professionals with the ability to critically examine their organizational environment and make it secure while creating an optimal relationship between obtrusion and necessity. It stresses the benefits of using a methodical critical thinking process in building a comprehensive safety management system. The book provides a mechanism that enables readers to think clearly and critically about the process of security management, emphasizing the ability to articulate the differing aspects of business and security management by reasoning through complex problems in the changing organizational landscape. The authors elucidate the core security management competencies of planning, organizing, staffing, and leading while providing a process to critically analyze those functions. They specifically address information security, cyber security, energy-sector security, chemical security, and general security management utilizing a critical thinking framework. Going farther than other books available regarding security management, this volume not only provides fundamental concepts in security, but it also creates informed, critical, and creative security managers who communicate effectively in their environment. It helps create a practitioner who will completely examine the environment and make informed well-thought-out judgments to tailor a security program to fit a specific organization.
