Objectives and Contextualisation

Differentiate and define security systems, such as electronic, physical and human elements, in the latter with special attention to learning men and women with respect and equality without prejudice to gender, installed and deployed in a facility to protect people and property before the different risks that can affect them.

Knowing the regulatory framework that regulates security technologies, and their relationship with the sectors of public security and private security.

Know the different electronic security devices that are marketed, installed, and maintained for the design of comprehensive security plans.

On the other hand, to know the existing physical security systems and how they are combined with electronic security systems to minimize the different risks to which the installation we wish to protect may be exposed.


  • Carry out analyses of preventative measures in the area of security.
  • Have a general understanding of basic knowledge in the area of prevention and integral safety and security.
  • Identify the resources necessary to respond to management needs for prevention and integral security.
  • Know how to communicate and transmit ideas and result efficiently in a professional and non-expert environment, both orally and in writing.
  • Make efficient use of ITC in the communication and transmission of results.
  • Plan and coordinate the resources of the three large subsystems that interact in questions of security: people, technology and infrastructures.
  • Respond to problems applying knowledge to practice.
  • Use the capacity for analysis and synthesis to solve problems.
  • Work and learn autonomously.
  • Work in institutional and interprofessional networks.

The values of each item for the evaluation are listed in the table below, all items must be passed with (3.5) so that they can be computed in the evaluation.

• Examination of the subject. At the end of each topic. Total value: 20%.

    • The exams may be at the discretion of the teacher as follows: Oral or written. Writings can be: multiple choice, short questions or long questions to develop or a combination of all the types previously described.

To participate in the recovery of the students, they must have been previously evaluated in a set of activities, the weight of which is equivalent to a minimum of two-thirds of the total grade for the subject. However, the grade that will appear in the student's file is a maximum of 5-approved.

Students who need to change an evaluation date must submit the request by filling in the document that you will find in the Moodle EPSI Tutoring space.

Without prejudice to other disciplinary measures deemed appropriate, and in accordance with current academic regulations, "in the event that the student makes any irregularity that may lead to a significant variation in the rating of an evaluation act, they will be scored with a 0 this act of evaluation, regardless of the disciplinary process that may be instructed In the event that there are several irregularities in the acts of evaluation in the same subject, the final grade for this subject will be "0".
