About Security

Safety and security are major concerns in this day and age, especially with new risks such as cybercrime and terrorism continuing to emerge. Luckily for us, professionals in the security sector work feverishly away to counter these threats and help keep us all safe.

The business of security involves different aspects: risk, threat, vulnerability, assurance, countermeasure and defence. It is the role of a security professional to monitor these and implement whatever preventative measures are necessary.

A career in security can cover a range of different specialties. These include international security, policing and intelligence, counterterrorism, anti-money laundering and defence industry project management, as well as emergency management and business continuity.
