Coombs (Eastern Illinois U.) intends this two-volume work to serve as a reference for people involved in business security by identifying the range of concerns that fall under that rubric and discussing of how to handle them. He also intends to help raise the awareness of regular employees about issues of business security. He first addresses information security, examining the core concepts of security models, security documentation, and security policies and standards and additional topics such as security threats connected to Internet and email use, portable device use, insider threats, and social engineering. He then addresses terrorism and includes discussion of ecoterrorism, agroterrorism, food security, and terrorist threats to chemical facilities. A section on general safety concerns contains entries on emergency preparedness and response, disaster recovery management, business continuity, and crisis management. Exploration of ethics, corruption, competitive intelligence, and reputation management conclude volume one. Volume two contains a section on physical protection, covering security guards, workplace violence, employee background screening and drug testing, video surveillance, radio frequency identity, biometrics, shelter-in-place, and evacuation, as well as a section on global issues, including pandemics, outsourcing, supply chain security, travel overseas, and corporate or industrial espionage. The second volume also includes a guidance appendix (with "how-to" advice on a number of topics), resource appendix, documents appendix, and glossary. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
