Workplace Security Playbook: The New Manager's Guide to Security Risk provides risk management guidelines for companies with other business functions coordinating security. When an employee without a security background is tasked with protecting people, facilities, or assets, this book can be a go-to resource. Business risks change and grow as a company changes and grows. New technology, increasing competition, and social and cultural developments contribute to new security risks and trends. The Workplace Security Playbook focuses on performance guidelines, rather than standards. Easily implementable recommendations are categorized by issues. In addition to security performance guidelines, topics include the elements of a facility security program, how to conduct security surveys and validation testing, workplace investigations and inspections, and procedures for emergency and special security situations. One chapter describes the resources available to a new security manager. Another offers an outline for building a customized reference of local security information. The Workplace Security Playbook is a part of Elsevier's Security Executive Council Risk Management Portfolio, real-world solutions and "how-to" guidelines that give executives, practitioners, and educators proven information for successful security and risk management programs.
