Book Title: CPP Exam Self-Practice Review Questions for Certified Protection Professional 2016/17 Edition: (with 190+ questions covering the May 2016 revised knowledge domains)
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
This edition comes with new questions presented in the 2016 May revised knowledge domains. The revision is more or less a reorganization of the existing knowledge domains (after all there has not been any new major inventions in the security industry). In the practical real world a CPP may be a security manager, an external consultant, or a law enforcement agent. For purpose of the exam, however, you want to position yourself as a hired consultant – one who acts as an advisor to the company management. The company is your client, and you are helping it out. You advise, you guide, and you recommend. You need to understand your client. If your client is absolutely new to security, full scale interviews and statistical analysis on crimes may be necessary. However, if your client has a working security mechanism in place, then you should conduct assessment basing primarily on inputs from management. In other words, management determines the depth and scope of the security project. Management makes the decisions. You suggest ways to improve, then carry out the decisions made by management. You don’t normally make decisions for your client. It is safe to say that you assume the role of project manager for your client’s security project. The security project would start by discussing the scope of work with your client. The most important meeting between you and the client would be the initial goal setting and policy review meeting. Senior management is going to get involved, and you are going to act as the facilitator. From this meeting you become aware of the level of risk your client is willing to assume and accept. Your work would then start from there. When working on a project it is important to understand the background and operation of the client. You also want to know what you are up against. Protection against vandalism is totally different from protection against terrorist attack. A CPP is more on the planning and management side of security. A security guard professional, on the other hand, is to provide client with professional protective services. It is believed that the CPP certification is more general in nature, while the PSP certification is way more specific and in-depth in physical security.
