SHORT BLURB/BRIEF DESCRIPTION: The Security System Design and Implementation Guide is a practical reference written to assist the security professional in clearly identifying what systems are required to meet security needs as defined by a threat analysis and vulnerability assessment. This guide presents an easy-to-follow outline developing the technical requirements for security systems, establishing the procurement process for those systems, and managing the implementation of the acquired systems. All of the elements necessary to conduct a detailed survey of a facility and the methods used to document the findings of that survey are covered. Once the required systems are determined, the chapters following present how to assemble and evaluate bids for the acquisition of the required systems in a manner that will meet the most rigorous standards established for competitive bidding. The book also provides recommended approaches for system/user implementation, giving checklists and examples for developing management controls using the installed systems. This book was developed after a careful examination of the approved reference material available from the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS International) for the certification of Physical Security Professionals (PSP). It is intended to fill voids left by the currently approved reference material to perform implementation of systems suggested in the existing reference texts. This book is an excellent "How To" for the aspiring security professional that wishes to take on the responsibilities of security system implementation, or the security manager who wants to do a professional job of system acquisition withouthiring a professional consultant.
