This social science thesis aims to provide a targeted analysis of the issues affecting the changing corporate security situation within the structure of Royal Mail as it moves from a publicly-controlled monopoly into a newly-liberalised marketplace. Royal Mail is, of course, the letter delivery arm of the United Kingdom's postal administration. It is also a business with an extremely long and distinguished history. However, it now operates within a commercial business structure recently experiencing dynamic change and is faced with an evolving marketplace, new information and communications technologies and effective in what was previously its monopolistic domain.
