Security Management, Planning & Asset Protection Course


Security and management are critical for any leading business's successful development and progression. Effective security management, personnel, and systems must integrate and support the business to secure critical assets rather than restrict its operation. As quickly as companies develop, so do the risks and threats they face. These risks and threats can primarily stem from internal sources such as personnel and information technology/systems or external sources such as environmental disasters or terrorism. Security management can directly control some of these threats but cannot. Successful security management will ensure that the company assets have been identified and evaluated for risk and that appropriate safeguards, such as crisis management and business continuity plans, are implemented to address the identified threats.

Risk analysis and security surveys are essential tools for security and management professionals. Objective ways of identifying and quantifying risk on a strategic, management, or operational level are persuasive tools to gain senior executive support. This security management, planning, and asset protection course will identify and provide the delegates with the leading practices for risk assessment and quantification, critical asset identification, vulnerability assessment, and how to document appropriate safeguards in relevant plans to mitigate risk and liability.

Leading companies can no longer view their security departments and employees as lower-tier functions. To ensure departments function effectively within the realm of the larger corporate objectives, manage and lead their teams to achieve effective security plans and programs that can be implemented successfully. To gain a consistent level of best practice, the security professional must understand the needs of his industry, team, and security projects. The security management, planning, and asset protection course is structured to equip delegates with specialist security knowledge to perform their management and supervisory duties to international standards in both security planning and asset protection.
