Home security is an essential part of owning a home. We all need to feel safe while we're at home as well as confident when we go out that burglars cannot get in. However, many homes are surprisingly easy to break into and in many cases burglars don't even have to use force. There is a huge amount that householders could do to keep their homes secure. This highly informative and practical book shows you how to protect your home and possessions without having to spend a fortune on elaborate security systems. The book starts with a chapter on what makes crime happen and the principles of crime prevention. The chapters that follow deal with boundaries, access, door and window security, garden security, lighting for both house and garden and electronic systems. A chapter on defensive plants explains how planting a dense, thorny hedge is a good way to deter intruders.

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 without hiring a professional consultant. UNIQUE FEATURE: Offers a step-by-step approach to identifying the application, acquiring the product and implementing the recommended system. Builds upon well-known, widely adopted concepts prevalent among security professionals. Offers seasoned advice on the competitive bidding process as well as on legal issues involved in the selection of applied products. BENEFIT TO THE READER: The author presents information previously available only from a costly Physical Security Consultant Dozens of sample forms, checklists, surveys, and tables make for quick reference

Blinded by emotional rhetoric, political posturing, and genuine fear, previous efforts to defend our way of life against aggressors intent on inflicting personal and economic destruction have proven, in hindsight, to be misguided, panicked, and reactionary. Evaluation and assessment to date is largely focused on reviewing government documents, doing little to alleviate the distorted perspectives from which we vainly attempt to invoke workable policy. In contrast to much of the current literature, Homeland Security Handbook takes a sober, analytical look at the policies, results, and lessons learned in what is still a nascent field. This comprehensive reference considers the myriad factors, implications, and ramifications involved with the practical and effective protection of our safety. Dividing contributions into five sections, this book— Provides an overview and historical perspective of the worldwide threat of terrorism and debates the necessity and danger of highly-centralized government response Explores specific threats to homeland security including the exploitation of our own vulnerabilities. It explores the insidious effect of psycho-terrorism and challenges the economic and military wisdom of launching armies against a nation-less and nebulous threat Offers practical, reasoned advice from practitioners and academic experts on planning, preparedness, prevention, and recovery Reviews supporting case studies from local and foreign governmental response to security and border control Quantifies the cost of homeland security in terms of funding, as well as the hardships incurred by rash and biased actions Conscious of the multi-faceted nature of the problem, the editor combines theory and practice to address concerns in border and transportation security, emergency preparedness and response, and infrastructure protection.

The purpose of this book is to provide a practical approach to managing security in FPGA designs for researchers and practitioners in the electronic design automation (EDA) and FPGA communities, including corporations, industrial and government research labs, and academics. This book combines theoretical underpinnings with a practical design approach and worked examples for combating real world threats. To address the spectrum of lifecycle and operational threats against FPGA systems, a holistic view of FPGA security is presented, from formal top level speci?cation to low level policy enforcement mechanisms, which integrates recent advances in the ?elds of computer security theory, languages, compilers, and hardware. The net effect is a diverse set of static and runtime techniques that, working in coope- tion, facilitate the composition of robust, dependable, and trustworthy systems using commodity components.
