What is Security Management
Security Management is a management field that focuses on the safety of assets (resources) in the organization, i.e. both physical safety and digital security.

Security is the mother of danger and the grandmother of destruction.

Thomas Fuller

Security Management (sometimes also Corporate Security) is a management field that focuses on the safety of assets (resources) in the organization, i.e. both physical safety and digital security. Security management is closely related to risk management and it is aimed at creating through various methods, procedures, guidelines and standards a permanent secure solution to such conditions, which will help prevent or reduce identified risks in particular.

Security management is a systematic, repetitive set of interconnected activities to ensure safe operation and thus reduce the likelihood of risks. The purpose of security management is similar to risk management, to avoid problems or negative phenomena (security risks and threats), avoid crisis management, and to avoid creating problems.

Security management in organizations is largely about ensuring authorized access to the assets (especially finance, information, real estate, ICT). Security management is therefore closely related to authorization management.

Key areas of physical and digital security management in organizations are:

Security manager (CSO) is responsible for managing security in large and medium organizations. The owner, statutory authority and top management have naturally the highest responsibility, like in risk management.
In many large organizations, there is a profession of information security manager (CISO) focused exclusively on information and IT security. The title of Vice President or Director of Corporate Security is intended for security solution at corporate level. Large organizations and organizations operating in a hazardous environment (such as banks, insurance companies) may have more specialists for security management.

In small organizations the responsibility for safety management is centered on the level of statutory authority, because it is not effective to employ a dedicated security manager full time.
