Responsibilities of Personal Protection 2 Security and personal protection has evolved into big business, and the security industry has provided protection to individuals and organizations where a value is placed on assets, people and property. The authors of The Evolution of Asset Protection and Security states that “Security” implies protection: safety from attack, espionage, or sabotage. It means being able to live, work, or play free from harm in a stable environment. Organizations must take measures to minimize disruption. These measures are dependent on a variety of factors, such as threat probability, criticality, culture of the organization, financial resources available, and so on. The measures taken have changed through “the march of time” (Christman, Hertig, Purpura, & Segraves, 2003 p.20). Evolution of Security and Personal Protection Reflections of security in the early ages brings to mind guards at entrance gates, vaults, locks, doors, and walls as barriers to protect assets, property, and people. In the days of King Solomon the secrets and architectural designs of the temples were kept behind doors guarded by soldiers willing to give their lives warding off intruders. During the days of the Wild West, safes, vaults, and locks, and guards were used to protect people and assets traveling across country on stage coaches and railroads.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
