Synopsis

The revision of Effective Security Management retains the excellent qualities which made the original editions a standard of the profession: a readable, comprehensive guide to the organization, staffing, and operation of the security function. Sennewald, a recognized leader in the field, applies modern management strategies to the concerns and problems facing every security manager. The focus of this book is not on abstract theories but rather on practical methods which can be used in managing an effective security department.

The third edition is enhanced with the addition of an entire chapter devoted to computer security. This chapter explains many of the distinct applications that the personal computer can have in the administrative, managerial, and supervisorial aspects of the security function. Included are details of the development of microcomputers, their operation, benefits, and risks. Due to the complexity of this emerging technology, a glossary to explain certain technical terms is provided.
