Due to the increasing terrorist activities in and around our country, which has severely effected our all segments of living in peace and harmony, has created a constant threat to all personnel and materials of our society.
It was a long felt need among the Industrial and other commercial Organizations, to acquire a book containing various facets of modern Industrial and Specialized Security Management.
With the rapid globalization of industries and introduction of numerous Electronic Gadgets into the vast field of security (both in Internal and External Systems), it has become very essential to change our entire strategy and thought process in relation to existing safety and specialized security required at various Industrial Houses, Airports, Hotels, Banks and Hospitals, etc.
An endeavour has been made through the book in the form of a concerted efforts to highlight and suggest various measures for all sizes of commercial/corporate houses and various organizations to reorganize the Industrial security and safety setup in their respective premises. I have no doubt, this will change the entire concept, thought process, effectiveness of prevailing Security Management and will prove as a tremendous motivating force for achieving their cherished and desired goals by countering unlawful elements belonging to various terrorist outfits in a most effective manner.
