"This book will save security professionals both phone calls and consultant fees, placing the experts' know-how within reach."

"Any security practitioner, regardless of experience, sector, or specialty, would benefit from this current and thorough reference."

"The work targets all levels of the security trade, from the novice looking at the diversity of entry-level security jobs and basic information to the seasoned executive suddenly confounded by the increasingly complex, technical terminology of today's security problems and solutions." --ASIS, Thomas W.
