value from security
This book "Value From Security" demonstrates what security's real capabilities are, and what needs to be done to realise them. The experiences presented have occurred in real organisations, globally, that are reaping the rewards of being at the vanguard of this new approach to security management.
crossing the line
"Crossing The Line" is about crossing the very real line that separates the worlds of public and private security and risk management. It is a guide for key players who are thinking of switching sectors and roles and moving from one kind of organisation and operating culture to another often significantly different one.
The book, which contains and draws upon a thesis on interrogation by David Burrill, sets a contemporary context surveying ways that truth and lies are increasingly entwined and legitimised to support behaviour that is unjustifiable and offers hope through the application of some humane principles.
