Today, threats to the security of an organization can come from a variety of sources — from outside espionage to disgruntled employees and internet risks to utility failure. Reflecting the diverse and specialized nature of the security industry, Security: An Introduction provides an up-to-date treatment of a topic that has become increasingly complex as more vulnerabilities arise. Philip P. Purpura, recently selected by Security Magazine as one of the Top 25 Most Influential People in the Security Industry, shares his 30-plus years of professional experience in the industry to provide basic theory and real-world methodologies that security practitioners can apply to scenarios they encounter. Topics discussed in this broad-based text include: The history of security and the role of security professionals Terrorism and national strategies for homeland security Crime prevention through environmental design Violence, theft, and drugs in the workplace Insider threats, pre-employment screening, and executive and personnel protection The security of physical structures Threats to information security, including malware and botnets; and risks to proprietary information and communication Security law and liabilities Investigations, interrogations, and surveillance Risk management, threats from natural disasters, and business continuity/enterprise resilience Critical infrastructures and key national resources The future of security technology Utilizing real-world examples, each chapter begins with learning objectives and a list of key terms and ends with discussion questions, role-playing exercises, and links to relevant websites. The book offers readers a foundation for understanding and implementing best practices for security to more effectively protect people, assets, and organizations.

This book sets out a comprehensive statement of the new security studies, establishing the case for the broader agenda.

National security, in theory and practice, is about governing a nation for the well-being of the people. It is a group subject and is not the domain of a single expert of a kind. It is teamwork under leadership of excellence. What is important is the consistency of purpose providing comfort to the people of a national and thereby the people of the world in their physical, mental and emotional domains as an ongoing process throughout their lives.

The nature and scope of UN Security Council decisions - significantly changed in the post-Cold War era - have enormous implications for the conduct of foreign policy. The UN Security Council offers a comprehensive view of the council both internally and as a key player in world politics. Focusing on the evolution of the council's treatment of key issues, the authors discuss new concerns that must be accommodated in the decisionmaking process, the challenges of enforcement, and shifting personal and institutional factors. Case studies complement the rich thematic chapters. The book sheds much-needed light on the central events and trends of the past decade and their critical importance for the future role of the council and the UN in the sphere of international security.

Security ist in aller Munde. Und unbestritten gilt heute nach Jahren der Konzentration auf stets neue technische Tools der Mensch als Schlüssel zum Erfolg der Unternehmenssicherheit. In diesem Zusammenhang ist viel von Security Awareness die Rede. Doch was bedeutet eigentlich Awareness? Reicht „Sensibilisierung“? Reichen didaktische Veranstaltungen oder E-Learning-Tools aus oder sind vielmehr ganzheitliche Kommunikationsstrategien der Schlüssel für die oftmals beschworenen Verhaltensänderungen? Erfahrene Berater, Kommunikationsexperten, Psychologen und Software-Architekten aus Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz beschreiben, welche Rolle Sicherheitskultur im Rahmen von Awareness spielt, sowie Methoden für Analysen und Konzeption bzw. Implementierung von Maßnahmen. Checklisten und Quellenangaben für Tools und Kampagnen-Bausteine vervollständigen das Buch und machen es zu einem unverzichtbaren Führer durch eine hier erstmals beschriebene methodische Awareness-Kommunikation.

Theory and Reality, a Need for a Change?

Category: Political Science

Page: 308

This book addresses the authority of the UN Security Council to regulate the use of force. In particular, it examines the question of whether the present composition, functions, and powers of the Security Council are adequate to meet recent demands, such as the need perceived by states to use force in cases of humanitarian emergency and pre-emptive action in response to international terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Is the Security Council still well positioned today to deal with these demands and challenges? In seeking a response, the book analyzes both Charter law and Security Council practice. It addresses not only the hotly debated recent crises concerning Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq, but also resolutions dealing with the use of force by peacekeeping operations. A number of issues relating to the right of self-defence are analyzed, as are the emerging new roles of NATO and the African Union. Separate chapters of the book are devoted to the current discussion concerning the reform of the Security Council. A particular feature of the book is the interaction between academics and practitioners as well as between theory and reality.

Building Security in a New World

Conflict among nations for forty-five years after World War II was dominated by the major bipolar struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union. With the end of the Cold War; states in differing legions of the world are taking their affairs more into their own hands and working out new arrangements for security that best suit their needs. This trend toward new &"regional orders&" is the subject of this book, which seeks both to document the emergence and strengthening of these new regional arrangements and to show how international relations theory needs to be modified to take adequate account of their salience in the world today. Rather than treat international politics as everywhere the same, or each region as unique, this hook adopts a comparative approach. It recognizes that, while regions vary widely in their characteristics, comparative analysis requires a common typology and set of causal variables. It presents theories of regional order that both generalize about regions and predict different patterns of conflict and cooperation from their individual traits. The editors conclude that, in the new world of regional orders, the quest for universal principles of foreign policy by great powers like the United States is chimerical and dangerous. Regional orders differ, and policy artist accommodate these differences if it is to succeed. Contributors are Brian L. Job, Edmund J. Keller, Yuen Foong Khong, David A. Lake, Steven E. Lobell, David R. Mares, Patrick M. Nlotgan. Paul A. Papayoanou, David J. Pervin, Philip G. Roeder, Richard Rosecrance and Peter Schott, Susan Shirk, Etel Solingen, and Arthur A. Stein.

Domestic and Security Challenges in the Arab Gulf States

Publisher: Council on Foreign Relations

This timely book demystifies the politics of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, and Oman, and focuses on the new pressures that have emerged since the Gulf War. Gause illuminates the foreign policy tightrope these states walk in the Middle East: self-defense is problematic, regional pressures translate directly into the domestic arena, and relations with the United States cause as well as solve many problems. Gause examines the interplay of Islamic fundamentalism, tribalism, and, most importantly, oil wealth that has determined the power structure of the Gulf monarchies. He shows what influences really drive politics in the Middle East as well as how U.S. foreign policy must respond to them in order to forge more meaningful ties with each country and preserve the stability of a fragile region that is vital to U.S. interests.
