Mapping Security: The Corporate Security Sourcebook for Today's Global Economy
Tom Patterson, Scott Gleeson Blue
The Definitive Guide to Effective Security in Complex Global Markets
Companies are global today and have complex security supply chains, out-sourced operations, and customer relationships that span the world. Today, more than ever, companies must protect themselves against unprecedented threats, understand and adhere to a global mosaic of regulations, and leverage security to enable today's business realities. In Mapping Security, global security expert Tom Patterson shows how to meet these challenges by presenting security best practices, rules, and customs for virtually every country where you do business.
Writing for executives, business managers, security professionals, and consultants, Patterson offers an exceptionally thorough and authoritative briefing on today's global security realities. Using real-world examples, he shows how to change your approach to security as you move more deeply into global markets: how to resolve contradictions among the complex rules and customs you'll have to follow and how to customize security solutions for every market. Along the way, he introduces the Mapping Security Index (MSI), a powerful new metric for rapidly quantifying security risk associated with 30 key markets. Coverage includes
How technology, mass globalization, and stricter accountability are forcing security to the core of the enterprise
