It presents a global view of security along with the practical application of security principles. Unmatched coverage of management topics such as planning, budgeting, and dealing with decision-makers make this an outstanding text for security management courses. The accessible and concise writing style makes it a top choice for students, while Ortmeierís focus on career preparation makes this edition an excellent prep tool for the ASIS International Certified Protection Professional (CPP) exam.
