The emphasis on private security management greatly increased after 9/11 as evidenced by the $400 billion spent annually on security.  Due to both man-made disasters (terrorism, workplace violence/random shootings, internal and external theft, hacking, and the deliberate physical destruction of employer’s property) and natural disasters (Hurricane Katrina, Sandy, fires, etc.) all organizations must take proactive steps to protect people, infrastructure and assets from harm.  This certificate is specifically designed to provide the foundation for understanding the scope of the security function within organizations, the various security techniques needed to protect people, the physical infrastructure and assets, and how to effectively manage a security team.   

There are a variety of professional certifications you may obtain upon graduation.  We encourage you to research the requirements of these certifications as many of them require the passing of an exam and relevant work experience.
