September 11 has put the need for security at the forefront of business concerns, and a broad range of opportunities exist within the security industry. The need for security guards across the nation overwhelmed many of the major security companies immediately after the attacks, and there is still a need for trained guards, armed and unarmed, especially in providing higher-end, more qualified personnel, though the demand has dropped as companies plan longer-term solutions.

According to Marc Bradshaw, president of the International Association of Professional Security Consultants, those long-term solutions include the installation of closed-circuit monitoring systems and biometrics systems as well as background checks on personnel in sensitive areas.
