Security and Organization


Admission requirements

This course is part of the minor Security, Safety and Justice, taught by a lecturer from TU Delft. The course can only be taken within the framework of participation in the minor SSJ.


In this course you will be introduced to the concept of security as it is applied within organizations. You step into the role of security manager in a corporate environment, where you are faced with manuals, methods of analysis, crises, and so on. This way, you get acquainted with the responsabilities of a security manager, while at the same time academic skills are taught to you, so that you can evaluate how the work can be done in a more efficient way.

Course objectives

  • Apply security analysis techniques in a structured way

  • Make critical choices regarding security issues, explain these choices and communicate them.
