Dr. Jean Perois, CPP, Chair of the ASIS Book of the Year committee, said, “This book is at the same time a reference, a training guide, and a very down-to-earth guide providing direction on all aspects and types of emergency operations.” The ASIS Security Industry Book of the Year is selected by a panel of ASIS members who review member-authored titles using criteria including relevancy to today’s security threats, importance of the subject in the field, and the uniqueness of the coverage of a new security concept, idea, or technology.
