This course will provide students with in-depth training on the four major pillars of security management:
Security Risk Management, Physical Security, Personnel Security, and Incident Management and Investigation.
- Security Risk Management will help you to prioritize your efforts and spending by identifying those assets most critical to your organization, and determining where additional protection is required
- Antiterrorism Planning will teach you how to prevent terrorist attacks at your facilities
- Personnel Security will help you to build programs which will protect your company’s most important asset – its people
- Security Incident Management and Investigation will help prepare you to respond to incidents quickly, limiting consequences and impact. Investigations are important to prevent similar events from occurring again.
