The book truly covers a breadth of topics, including sections on entrepreneurial practice, management practice, legislation and regulation, private investigations, protective security, safer business travel, as well as personal and organisational resilience….All in all, this is likely to be a resource that will serve the security practitioner not only today, but also well into the future.

Essential direction for those who want to succeed in security, either individually or as part of a team. It also aims to stimulate some fresh ideas and provide new market routes for security professionals who may feel that they’re somewhat under-appreciated and/or overexerted in traditional business domains.

The author has produced a most assured work; a book for our times; and one for the newcomer to security and anyone wanting to refresh themselves or get a grip on 2015 in general. A cracking book from a man who is giving the security industry a good name.
