Why is Home Security Important
This chapter describes processes by which security has been, or has sought to be. achieved by and why it is requisite for human society. The term derives from the Latin securus and securitas, feeling no care or apprehension, the safeguarding of (the interests of) a state, organization, or persons; safe. Four interlinking factors have evolved to make individuals, enterprises, institutions, and society as a whole secure:
1. Physical security measures
2. Public protection forces and tactics
3. Private security personnel and technology
4. Individual efforts for protection and maintenance of order
This chapter will argue that society endeavors to achieve security through mutual connections between the public and private sectors, as well as from individual effort. Risks constantly change due to the development of new conditions, procedures and technology; security changes in response to this evolution.
