Our need for security has not waned since the dawn of civilization - it has only increased and become more complicated. Protection, Security, and Safeguards: Practical Approaches and Perspectives draws on the security prowess of former secret service agents and other notable security professionals as the authors touch on nearly every facet of the industry.Written to satisfy the practical needs of anyone in the business of protection, the text covers areas such as personal protection, security in the workplace, residence security, healthcare security, aviation security, and many more. Special chapters detailing the experiences of an identity theft victim, as well as a woman who must employ 24-hour security to insure she doesn't harm others, cover security issues from the client's viewpoint. Other chapters on quick threat assessment and defensive tactics will help agents protect themselves and their clients.Although other publications discuss and analyze security, none focus on both the professional and personal perspectives of this critical industry.Editor Dale L.
