ABOUT SECURITY MANAGER CAREERS
Video transcript

Security is a top priority in every company, whether it's preventing theft or being prepared for emergencies. For many, security managers make the difference between being safe and being sorry. Security managers protect the safety of employees, facilities, and the assets of an organization. They assess risks and establish policies to prevent dangers such as fires, bomb threats, medical emergencies and intrusions. These security professionals evaluate building layouts to plan for evacuation, hiding during a crisis, and detaining or apprehending criminals. In all kinds of workplaces, whether it's a bank or a mall, if security is breached, security managers are in charge of identifying the location and problem, and resolving it. One of their key roles is to design security systems that track activity and establish safeguards at building entrances, exits, and other sensitive areas. This strategic thinking and preparation keeps both people and property safe. Many security managers enter the field with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice, security management, or a similar field. Some employers prefer candidates with experience in the police force or military. A driver's license and security training related to the industry is helpful.
