Project 1: Preparing for a   Speech Before a Security Professional Organization

Scenario: You are the Corporate Security Director for a   Fortune 500 company and a recognized leader in the security   profession.  You accept an invitation to speak at the ASIS International   Seminar and Exhibits about the various security operational and other   challenges with which organizations are confronted in protecting assets and   possible solutions.  Because of your expertise, you are asked to discuss   in detail a security director’s various professional responsibilities in   today’s world, including loss prevention, investigation, administrative, and   managerial functions and the critical skills required of a security director   to fully succeed in accomplishing the protective mission.  You are also   asked to address the importance for a security director to develop strong   working relationships with various internal and external entities and provide   examples how these associations will promote a successful security operation.

Writing Assignment: After conducting the appropriate   academic research using at least three different sources, write a speech that   comprehensively addresses the following:  

(1) Provide a “welcome” statement and a strong   introduction describing to the audience the purpose of your speech.

(2) Identify and discuss the current operational and   other challenges confronting security directors and possible solutions to   those challenges.

(3) Identify and discuss in detail a   security director’s various professional responsibilities in today’s world,   including loss prevention, investigation, administrative, and managerial   functions.

(4) Identify and discuss the critical skills required of a   security director to fully succeed in protecting an organization’s assets.

(5) Identify and discuss the significance in establishing   strong internal and external relationships to meet security operational   objectives and provide examples of the individuals and groups with whom   partnerships must be forged.

(6) Provide concluding remarks that summarize your   presentation and close your speech with an invitation for the audience to   participate in a question/answer discussion session.

Note: One or more of your research sources may include interviews   with properly documented private sector security professionals in   a position to respond to the types of questions required to ascertain the   information to write this speech.  Students will identify these   individuals and their titles to the course instructor one week before the   project due date.  Also, in organizing your written speech, you should   consider using short sub-titles (e.g., Operational and Other Challenges and   Solutions; Loss Prevention Role; Investigation Role; etc.) for distinct areas   cited above so you do not inadvertently omit a project requirement.
