What does a Security Manager do?
Security is responsible for ensuring the safety and protection of a company's employees, visitors, and associated property. Security is tasked with patrolling a designated area, responding to safety and security threats, and establishing a security presence. Security works in office buildings, retail stores, hospitals, colleges, casinos, and much more.
Security does not need to have a formal education aside from a high school diploma or equivalent. Many employers require security to be licensed. While licensure requirements vary by state, most states at least require security to be 18 years old, pass a background check, and complete a minimum number of hours of training. Requirements generally vary for unarmed versus armed security officers. Security must be alert, strong communicators, and physically fit.
