The third volume in our Field Guide series, The Field Guide to Accommodation Security is designed to guide you in the selection of secure accommodation during engagements in complex and higher-risk environments.

The guide focuses on the security of hotels, apartments, guesthouses and residences. You’ll learn the advantages and disadvantages of each accommodation option. You’ll also learn how to assess the security of your accommodation and the options available to you to augment security and increase the level of protection.

Parts of this field guide are technically orientated and may not be light reading for some. The guide will get into the nuts and bolts of physical security, particularly when it comes to increasing the level of security protection. Starting with hotels, each chapter will go progressively deeper into security design and technology. Overall, the combined knowledge you’ll gain from learning about the different approaches to securing each type of accommodation will enable you to make effective decisions and implement appropriate security measures regardless of where you’re staying.
