Security 101: Physical Security Standards for Transportation

The objective of this project is to provide transportation managers and employees with an introductory-level reference document to enhance their working knowledge of security concepts, guidelines, definitions, and standards. Emphasis will be placed on identifying transportation related security standards for facilities, security design considerations, security concepts, and an overview of what it means to approach security from a systems perspective. This report will be designed for use by a wide audience of transportation managers and employees, including those with direct security responsibility.  It is anticipated that the primary user group for the report is transportation personnel without a security background whose work requires them to address, perform, or supervise security activities as a part of their overall job responsibilities.  Although designed principally for transportation managers and employees with either minimal or no formal security training, the report will be sufficiently detailed to be of use to security professionals as well.</font></div>
