Why Security Management?

Understanding the security threats posed on a local, national and global level is key for a number of organisations and workplaces. Increased use of technology in modern society leaves an unprepared business vulnerable, and the risk for terrorist incidents must be mitigated.

Our postgraduate course in Security Management is designed to meet this challenge, enabling participants and organisations the opportunity to grasp the issues pertaining to security management, counter-terrorism and intelligence, and law enforcement. Learn how different security strategies are designed and implemented on a practical and theoretical level via distance learning to best understand the importance of security management.

About Liverpool John Moores University

The Liverpool Mechanics Institute was founded by people of power and influence who recognised the transformative effects of education and the impact that learning and aspiration could have on individuals, communities and society. It was the first such institution to be founded in England.

This small, pioneering movement was followed by the establishment of the Liverpool Institute and School of Art and the Liverpool Nautical College, and in 1900 Irene Mabel Marsh opened the IM Marsh campus. These organisations together laid the foundations for Liverpool John Moores University, an institution that has grown and flourished and continues to provide opportunities for all.

Today, with a vibrant community of 25,000 students from over 100 countries worldwide, 2,500 staff and 250-degree courses, Liverpool John Moores University is one of the largest, most dynamic and forward-thinking universities in the UK.

The university combines professionally recognised qualifications with innovative and socially orientated courses. The centre has an outstanding reputation for research, with academic staff contributing regularly to industry journals, advisory groups, governmental policy, as well as gaining regular public exposure through the press and broadcast media.
