Security Operations Management takes concepts from business administration and criminal justice schools and incorporates them into the world of security management. It is comprehensive text focused on theoretical and research-oriented overviews of the core principles of security management. The book includes critical issues faced by real-life security practitioners and explores how they were resolved. The book is written for practitioners, students, and general managers who wish to understand and manage security operations more effectively.
