Module overview

Security management is an essential activity in most organisations, with poor security practices often playing a key role in organisational failure and crises. This has resulted in a need for individuals with specialist knowledge in organisational security management.

This module draws upon theory, research, contemporary examples and the analysis of historical incidents to provide students with a broad understanding of the key conceptual and human issues surrounding security threats and their effective management. Students will learn how to (i) identify and assess a range of security threats (ii) critically evaluate the relative strengths of a variety of security management techniques and (iii) determine the role of organisational culture and managerial practices in improving organisational security.
