Course Description


Effective security is a vital prerequisite of business success, and recent history is littered with examples of companies which have failed because of security inadequacies.

But the days of the industrial policeman are long past. Modern security is a highly specialized and skilled business, calling for a wide range of abilities and qualities on the part of the professionals who lead it.

At the same time, it must be realized that security sits within the corporate strategy, and must contribute to the organisations goals. Integration of the security function into senior-level corporate planning is essential.

The modern security manager should be a key player in the company, who can plan and run an effective security strategy, and a competent and well-trained team, which together will enable the organization to operate effectively, free from the consequences of the unexpected.
