Review

"Dr. Kovacich and Mr. Halibozek provide an integrated 'how to' approach to implementing a cost-effective, business-oriented corporate assets protection program. Their book will help corporate security professionals in meeting the challenges of the 21st century." - Howard A. Schmidt, Chairman, President's Infrastructure Protection Boards; Former President, Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) A comprehensive guide... ...covers more than just the fundamental elements required to protect people, property and facilities. New and experienced managers alike will find information and practical advice to aid in developing strategic and tactical plans and managing daily operations. - Law Enforcement Technology In this book, authors Gerald L. Kovacich and Edward P. Halibozek clearly present what global security managers should expect in this environment and provide them with the basic tools to carry out their duties. While the authors focus on corporate asset protection for both new and experienced security professionals, the book speaks even more broadly to the security field in general. Few other books map out a progressive management plan for the novice while maintaining enough new materials for experts. Concepts introduced by the authors are blended beautifully in a case study of a fictitious global corporation. Flow charts and additional case studies allow the reader to grasp ideas in context. .it would appeal to practitioners, consultants, and students alike. - Security Management The Manager's Handbook for Corporate Security covers more than just the fundamental elements which are required to protect people, property, and facilities. This comprehensive guide shows security managers how to handle a multitude of functions and includes proven processes, flow charts, and checklists which can be used "as is" or quickly adapted to fit a company's needs. New and experienced managers alike will find a wealth of information and practical advice to help you develop strategic and tactical plans and manage your daily operations. - Police and Security News The Manager's Handbook for Corporate Security - Establishing and Managing a Successful Assets Protection Program deserves to be read by security professionals... ...four of the book's 23 chapters are in Part I and they set a context for today's security professional in the best way I've seen. Reworking realities, being courageous about change and leading in difficult times are themes Dr. Gerald L. Kovacich and Edward P. Halibozek address in tight, straight-forward segments. 'Thought-provoking' is an often-misused term, but not here. - Derek Knights consultant, corporate security with Ontario Power Generation in Canadian Security magazine --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wealth of insight 1 April 2013
By Wolf
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The authors seem to understand the field and offer a wealth of information and insight. The book itself however is very disappointing. There are spelling and editing errors. The writing on many pages differs in tone - some pages clearly have much darker print. There are also many pages where the size of the text suddenly shrinks halfway down the page and then reverts to original size again. In between text the use of shaded boxes is meant to highlight definitions, quotes, etc. but these boxes are often too dark and difficult to read. The graphs and organigrams used are often confusing and elaborate. There is no use of colour throughout the entire book.

Overall the book looks and feels like a good quality book. However, the final presentation and obvious errors mentioned above make this book over-priced and makes me feel "ripped off".

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 30 Sep 2012
By Bob E - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Since purchasing this book, I have re-read it several times and kept it on hand at my work office. It offers a unique look at the corporate security manager from a business POV where many publications fail. I highly recommend this book for any security manager who becomes frustrated with the daily challenge of fighting for resources!

Hi everyone,
First of all, I've received all of my orders here in Brazil in perfect shape and quicker than I thought it would be.
The book is great - an excellent manual on Security, quite complete and straightforward - and I couldn't be happier!
Thanks, Amazon!
