Salaries Up for Top Spot

- New salary data collected by the Foushée Group in cooperation with the International Security Management Association (ISMA) indicates that top corporate security executives earned 11 percent more in total cash compensation in 2004 than they did the year before. This rise parallels the results of the latest ASIS International salary survey, reported in Security Management in January. The ASIS survey showed salaries among security managers increasing by 13 percent from the year before; about half of the 339 respondents to the ASIS survey filled the top security slot in their organizations. According to the Foushée survey, top security executives make more than $250,000 a year in total cash compensation.
