In Intelligence-Based Security in Private Industry, Thomas A. Trier identifies the inherent need and desire for intelligence-based security that exists throughout the private security industry. He provides a general overview of intelligence-based security and specific implementation guidelines to reduce private businesses’ risk and vulnerability to criminal activities.
This book is practical and informational, demonstrating real applications of the concepts, theories, and methods of gathering and acting upon information that may suggest a threat to a company.

Something is terribly wrong. We're protecting the wrong things, damaging productivity, and making it way too hard for our people to help us.
Today, getting security right requires more than checklists; it requires careful thinking about your actual threats and technologies. That's what this book is about: how to think about security.
