Security in 2025 employs a modern technique to peer into the future, crowdsourcing a vision from the minds of 34 security professionals. The book’s contributors, ranging from new entrants to long-time veterans of the field, offer their predictions on a wide range of security topics from many different perspectives. Some chapters (on high-rise buildings, kidnapping, and electricity distribution, for example) extrapolate from existing trends. Others (on drones and knife attacks) address issues that are just emerging.
The book addresses such diverse topics as analytical methodologies to predict terrorism and the future of security officer training. It is likely you will have heard of at least one of the editors (who also contribute useful chapters on loss prevention and 100 security issues that will impact security in the next decade). A well-known contributor is former ASIS President Geoff Craighead. He writes on the future of risk management in high-rise buildings, an area where he has developed an expertise. Another renowned contributor is Joshua Sinai, author the ASIS-published book, Active Shooter: A Handbook on Prevention, 2nd Ed.
Security managers, security consultants, and students taking security management courses will find this book to be an invaluable resource.
