The characteristics of security projects are stressed on and the importance of adopting management task is determined. In addition, the chapter examines the different cost estimation models developed for security project and discusses the technical and managerial factors affecting the cost estimation and the management of project. In addition, a review of research works directed toward security investment models is determined.
