Security

Security Professionals, Security Training, Security Degrees

 

The events of September 11, 2001 and the subsequent establishment of the Homeland Security office opened an entirely new avenue for Security Professionals.  The agency is charged with pulling together the functions of something like twenty two Federal agencies into one organization that will function to guard our borders, police our airports and ports and get our immigration situation under control.  That will open up some new opportunities in Security Management. 

 

Corporate Security has also taken a serious turn.  Both governmental and private organizations are extremely concerned about protecting data bases – from intrusion, theft and corruption.  And, as more domestic corporations become global entities, they are focusing on the physical security of their far-flung facilities as well.  There are opportunities at every level in the Security field.
