New CPTED books
As apart of our new training direction, we will be publishing several practical CPTED books.
The first two are:
Think Shoplifting! A Guide to CPTED for reducing shoplifting.
Cyber-security and Cyber-CPTED
In addition is our new (and free!) cyber-security newsletter BOSS-Gram providing succinct, up-to-date practical cyber security information for managers and executives.

New! Boss-Gram Newsletter
BOSS-GRAM is our free cyber-security newsletter for all managers, executives and bosses.
Why for managers, executives and bosses?
First, cyber-security is primarily a business and management issue: Management considerations include cost-benefit assessment, scale and type of cyber-risks and losses, intellectual property risks, business continuity protection, competitive advantage risk, loss of business credibility with loss of confidential information etc.
Second, IT security is no longer enough: 'Whole of business' cyber security has this year been identified as being better by most cyber-security institutes and government bodies: The reason? Cyber-criminals attack via every aspect of business front and back office processes, staff behaviours, and even the activities of organisations a business interacts with.
Third, many important cyber-security protections come from changes to business practices rather than IT: Managers and executives are the people who can change business practices to improve cyber-security.
BOSS-Gram contains succinct, practical and up-to-date cyber-security and cyber-risk information for managers and executives to make informed management decisions about cyber-security. BOSS-Gram is purposefully written in straight management English and avoids technical language.
We believe well-informed management cyber-security is important for business and for reducing cyber-risks worldwide.
Perth Crime Map
For CPTED professionals, getting accurate and representative crime data is ALWAYS problematic. Comparative crime data (e.g. crime rate/suburb) is even more problematic.
A new source of comparative crime data for Perth, Western Australia is the Perth Crime Map.
