People are the anchor of security organizations – countering threats, creating defenses and technologies; they lead organizations and seek to creatively approach threats. But there is a gap between strategy and tactics, goals and means, decision makers and field agents, between the imaginative and the structured. Procedures and machines are trusted more than security agents whose abilities and instincts are the make or break of security. The means became the goal.
Rich with examples, from small and local threats to strategic ones – personalities, temptations, weaknesses, passions, interests and more, seem to prevail. This book puts security agents in the center, their flexibility: personal, mental, and under duress, offering alternative thought patterns and perspectives into the planning, adaptation, and response of security organizations. This book is about people, the human spirit and the realities of good, dedicated agents and their daily challenges.
