About the Author:

Steve Layne is an internationally recognized authority on the protection of cultural properties, guard force management, and training.

Steve is a former police chief, public safety director, and museum security director. He currently heads an international consulting firm assisting business, industry, and government, to include several hundred cultural and educational institutions.

Review:

"Many organizations have cultural assets that require their own protective approach without being a property: corporate art collection, libraries, and grounds open to the public. Some of Layne's ideas could be useful in tightening different targets." --Security Letter

"...introduces and discusses at a fundamental level a wide number of topics pertinent to protecting cultural properties. Many of these topics easily transfer to other areas of facility security."--ASIS Dynamics Newsletter, January 2015
