Private and/or corporate security: Are there conceptual similarities and differences?
University of Banja Luka, Faculty of Security Science, Republic of Srpska, B&H
This paper addresses the theoretical and conceptual determinations of private and corporate security. Based on the literature review, common characteristics and specificities are examined, and the grounds for conceptual similarities and differences are critically re-examined. The key question is whether the two concepts are different or represent the same concept. The typology of corporate security by Lippert et. al. was used as an analytical framework to compare corporate and private security. Each of the five dimensions in the typology is compared and analyzed. First, the findings of Lippert et al. regarding the above typology are presented followed by the typology, that is, the analytical framework used for the analysis of private security. Finally, the comparison of private and corporate security was performed to see in which dimensions of the typology there are overlaps and similarities, and in which differences. In this regard, the basic conclusion is that private security and corporate security are two related concepts with significant common characteristics (Lat. genus proximum) and specificities that distinguish them from each other (Lat. differentia specifica). The results of the comparative analysis indicate that private security and corporate security are related but conceptually different notions.
