ExamESSENTIALS PSP Study Guide & Practice Questions 2018/19

The whole idea behind professional physical security is that you need to know what are to be protected behind the door and the values involved in order to determine the suitable security measures to be deployed. Your security solution must be practical and realistic and must be within budget, while being capable of offering the level of security in need. That is why we came up with this special study guide. You may think of our guide as the unofficial supplement to the official readings, or you may view it as a standalone guide with special focus from a professional perspective.
