Risk, Crisis and Security Management
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe risk and security industry has grown rapidly in recent years, largely as a consequence of increasing regulation and governance in many parts of the industrialized world. Risk, Crisis and Security Management not only considers how risk, crisis and security may be linked in an organizational context, but also reviews the role of simulation and gaming in responding to these phenomena.
Risk remains a subject of intense social and political controversy. How we manage risk appears to dominate every debate from providing social services such as health, transport and public safety to the regulation of corporate activity. Risk, Crisis and Security Management is vital reading for all students of any of these subjects hoping to make it in the real world, as well as being highly relevant for practising security professionals.
