Summary

The updated fourth edition of Introduction to Security: Operations and Managementprovides a single, comprehensive text that balances introductory protection concepts with security management principles and practices. 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.
