The term refers to  

"the security in the specific context of buildings and built environments
and also the process of building and designing-in the security as natural  (embedded) design elements & approach."

This subject has been basic to architecture, its origin, and evolution but gaining prominence once again today with the ever-changing crime and threat profiles globally. Unlike the traditional approach to security and defense, this relies heavily on balancing effective security with its perceptibility and mental comfort.
