Traditional corporate security programs once focused on the protection of facilities, equipment and people by physical security means alone. Today, the protection of corporate assets requires a state-of the-art protection program; one driven by information systems which permeate corporations and the corporate security functions themselves. The program must be able to change rapidly to keep up with the latest technology and to meet the organization's needs as they evolve. The Handbook is designed to help professionals meet these challenges.

This comprehensive guide covers the fundamental elements involved in asset protection and outlines an integrated "how to" approach to implementing a complete security program. It includes tested methods and processes, flow charts, and checklists that can be put to use immediately.
