Security management
Aim of the course
The aim of the course is to identify and structure the characteristics required for optimum management of a company's security system.
Starting with the current concept of corporate security, the course will reconstruct the historical development of this branch of the company, for which the figure of corporate security manager was recently identified.
The UNI 10459 standard will therefore be studied, and all its constituent factors individually illustrated.
In particular, the course will focus on the current legislation which this professional is responsible for implementing.
Management functions and relations within the company, and relations with external and institutional organisations, will then be illustrated.
An essential part of the course will also be devoted to the country's security system.
In conclusion, the special part of the syllabus will deal with aspects relating to the working method and organisation of the security system.
Finally, the security system in urban environments will be considered; this subject was only introduced recently, but is rapidly evolving in local security systems.
