About this title


Numerous publications exist which examine elements of the security discipline Few address these elements as a continuum of interrelated functions None examine the structure of Offensive vice Defensive security in anything other than the domain of international security This text has been written to fill this gap and to support a course in Offensive Defensive Security developed by Henley Putnam University which briefly reviews the history of the field of strategic security and its three component parts protection intelligence and counterterrorism as well as its two distinguishing characteristics offensive tactics and operations combined with technological innovation The course then moves to an in depth assessment of related security areas that focus on defensive tactics and operations homeland security criminal justice conflict and peace studies and emergency management While these fields may appear at first to be part of strategic security this course and the associated text explores the critical differences and the fact that they are also critical elements of industrial governmental and military security Emphasis will be placed at an introductory level both academic and professional distinctions and discuss the structures associated within these domains The text is divided into the following key sections Section 1 The Basics Section 2 The Environment Section 3 Security Planning and Management Section 1 provides an orientation for the reader to a common frame of reference through information provided in the following chapters It is not intended to be a single source of all relevant information Additionally this text is not intended to be the exhaustive single source for all conditions Rather it provides a roadmap of considerations on how to reach a specific goal in an efficient and informed manner Section 2 examines the world the security professional must inhabit again in a generalized manner and likely in a way never before consi

About the Author:

Harry Nimon is a life-long learner, involving himself in the domains of art, poetry, physics, music, fantasy (his favorite authors are Robert Jordan, Jim Butcher and C.J. Cherryh) history (primarily military and political) neuroscience, psychology, and religion. He received his U.G. degree in Education from Akron University and M.B.A. from Central Michigan. Upon entering the U.S. Army, he became enthralled in the Intelligence and Security fields, serving in many posts until his retirement in 1998. During this tenure, and because of his son, he became deeply interested in neurology and neuroplasticity in 1982, culminating in a Doctorate in 2008 where he researched the effects of personality on an individual's ability and willingness to accept computer-mediated communications during combat in Desert Storm and other theaters. Harry has spent the last 40 years in the field of Operations Research modeling and simulations. In 2000, he began teaching a variety of courses for the University of Phoenix and later, in 2011, for Henley-Putnam University, for which this book was written. He works for the Boeing Corporation in the Phantom Works Company, again, performing O.R. analyses and designing operational models and simulations. He is married (since 1975) to a wonderful and professionally lauded woman, has four adult children (two married) all of whom are highly educated (a Ph.D. and 3 Master's degrees) and of high professional standing. Moreover, he strongly believes that he has been Blessed beyond measure by a wonderful God.
