A great resource both for the security professional and student alike, the book is arranged in three sections: determining the objectives; designing the system; and evaluating the system. The book’s structured approach emphasizes the use of component performance measures to establish the effectiveness of physical protection systems, applying scientific and engineering principles to meet goals. The author takes a problem-solving approach to security and risk assessment, explaining the use of electronic protection elements and demonstrating how these elements are integrated into an effective system.
