It can be argued that security management had received a lower relative research priority in the literature than other areas of corporate management. However, following the catastrophic events of 9-11 in the USA and the 7/7 event in the UK, this has resulted in a significant increase of studies focused on examining corporate security issues and their effective management and prevention (Sennewald 2011).
The purpose of this research paper was to evaluate and
examine whether to fulfil the requirements of this role,
security mangers need to acquire additional managerial
capabilities and knowledge. Following an overview of the
security issues faced by corporation, and an examination of
the various elements of the security managers roles and
responsibilities, it is considered that the outcome of the
study will confirm that managers appointed to this role will
need to develop a high level of specialist skills are also
essential to fulfil its requirements.
