"This excellent book is another reminder of Chuck's top-shelf standing among security professionals." ~John J. Fay, author of Contemporary Security Management and owner-operator of learningshopusa.com "You can't be in the security industry and consider yourself a professional without being in utter awe of Chuck Sennewald's remarkable career and accomplishments. The most difficult textbook to write is one that is grounded in common sense and written in a simple and to-the-point style. The fifth edition of his classic, Effective Security Management, is that kind of book. The economy of words-saying all that needs to be said, but not a word more-is elegant. Revised and updated, this book should be in everyone's professional library-whether student or practitioner." ~John J. Strauchs, co-author of Private Security Trends 1970-2000: The Hallcrest Report II "Of the five books authored or co-authored by Charles Sennewald that I have read, the fifth edition of Effective Security Management is simply the best. Chuck hit the bulls-eye on this, as its all-encompassing nature ensures that there is something in the book for security practitioners of every level." ~Leslie Cole, Sr., CPP, CST, Member of the Board - IAPSC, Council Vice President - ASIS International "The fifth edition of this comprehensive work on security management for corporations and institutions presents the fundamentals of effective security practices updated to address the latest trends and contemporary challenges in the field. Rather than focusing on particular types of businesses or narrow aspects of security such as site security or data protection, this volume teaches best practices for establishing a solid security regime across all aspects of an entity's internal and external processes. The work is divided into five sections covering general security management, security personnel management, operational management, public relations and the perils of mismanagement. Individual chapters address such topics as the role of security and the security director in organizational structures, hiring and training security personnel, contracting, planning and budgeting, administrative tasks, policy and procedure development and implementation, building an internal security culture, and relationships with law enforcement and the community. Individual chapters include illustrations, tables, summaries and review exercises. Sennewald is a security consultant and a former security director for retail firms."--Book News, Reference & Research "The intent of this most recent edition of Effective Security Management is to focus on one goal-providing security managers with a base of knowledge, attitudes, and practices similar to that of other management professions. The author has certainly achieved his goal. This well-structured book can be used as a security professional's template for setting up and organizing effective security operations in virtually any setting."--Security Management
