Risk Analysis and the Security Survey, Second Edition provides an understanding of the principles of risk analysis to security students and professionals, which will help them produce more effective, results-oriented security surveys geared to the ever-changing needs of the organization. This new edition provides the readers, professional and practitioners alike with new information essential to meeting their professional obligations with regard to crisis management planning, business continuity planning, disaster response and recovery as well as many other issues facing the security industry today. This book is a "must have" for all security professionals studying risk analysis and loss control.

The most fundamental philosophy of risk control, design and implementation is to make the security program as self-sufficient as possible in all matters pertaining to security. This includes the two-sided coin of risk control: (1) the protection of assets by identifying, analyzing and prioritizing the risk, and (2) contingency and disaster recovery planning.

Business Impact Analysis (BIA) which covers Project Planning, Data Collection, Data Analysis and Report of Findings,Prediction of Criminal Behavior
Updated statistical information and practical case examples
Geared to help professionals and students produce more effective results-oriented security surveys

The premise behind this book is that an understanding of the principles of risk analysis will produce a more effective, results-orientated security survey/audit geared to the ever changing needs of the organization. A survey/audit is more than a mere checklist indicating that a few locks need to be changed. Ideally, it is a physical representation and measurement of the organization's vulnerabilities, those threats facing it, and the degree to which the security program is effective in its level of protection. Understanding certain basics of risk analysis will insure that the security survey is an accurate reflection of the security program and the needs of the organization. This book will be of interest to anyone who is involved in analyzing risk and preparing, conducting, or interpreting the security survey/audit.

Editorial Reviews

Updating the 1984 edition, a security authority advocates a three- pronged approach to the fraud and abuse that costs US businesses some $400 billion annually: minimize security risks; minimize loss in the event a breach occurs; and develop/keep current contingency and disaster recovery plans. Appends security survey worksheets and information on danger signs of fraud, embezzlement, and theft; professional practices and resources for business continuity planners; sample introduction letters; a sample kidnap and ransom contingency plan; handling media inquiries; and security system specifications.
