Description

Security Risk Assessment is the most up-to-date and comprehensive resource available on how to conduct a thorough security assessment for any organization.

A good security assessment is a fact-finding process that determines an organization's state of security protection. It exposes vulnerabilities, determines the potential for losses, and devises a plan to address these security concerns. While most security professionals have heard of a security assessment, many do not know how to conduct one, how it's used, or how to evaluate what they have found.

Security Risk Assessment offers security professionals step-by-step guidance for conducting a complete risk assessment. It provides a template draw from, giving security professionals the tools needed to conduct an assessment using the most current approaches, theories, and best practices.

Review Text

"White has created an excellent book with material drawn from the well of his experience...clearly a must-read for the inexperienced or nonsecurity professional who is faced with the task of conducting a security assessment." -- ASIS Dynamics

"...it was refreshing to see this book covered very little on IT and took a broader view of security risk assessment...Each section is presented in layman's terms, with clear examples and some templates to help with the assessment. Score: 7 out of 10" -- BCS.org, January 2015

"...takes you through a security risk assessment, from who will do it, how often it needs doing, and how long it takes...through the planning, the schedule and budget, and that wonderful word 'deliverables', how to gather information on risk, whether from staff surveys or interviews." -- Professional Security Magazine Online, 2014
