This new handbook sets out to assist those responsible for safeguarding the physical assets and operations of enterprises from a wide range of security threats. Members can now download this in the Security section on the member library.
The need for businesses to protect themselves against the destructive activities of familiar criminal types; the burglar, robber, mugger, vandal and arsonist, remain as pressing as ever against the background of stretched policing resources and reversion to increasing crime levels.
Pitching security at the right level is largely a matter of judgement. To assist the reader, the book considers the risk factors that most aggravate and mitigate the security risk exposure and discusses the strategies, tactics and practical measures available for property protection. However, the nature of crime does not stand still and the book also addresses the increasing importance of having in place the essential security measures for basic cyber crime protection.
