The term “security economy” is, like the concept it denotes, relatively new. It attempts to describe a kaleidoscope cluster of activities concerned with preventing or reducing risk of deliberate harm to life and property. At the broadest level, it could include all matters related to defence and counter intelligence, the public police force, private policing, armed guards, and security technology providers. In a much narrower sense, it might comprise just private spending on personal and corporate security. For the purposes of this publication, the security economy is considered to comprise principally the security industry, including its interfaces with security-related activities of governments and their agencies.
