Overview

The Risk Management Handbook: A Practical Guide to Managing the Multiple Dimensions of Risk by David Hillson

Risk management is dynamic, with new risks being identified on a continuous basis and risk management techniques adapting to these new challenges. The Risk Management Handbook provides a clear view of the current state of play in the risk management landscape while also looking ahead to the issues in the future.

Part One of the book covers the main areas of risk management in business including:  enterprise risk management, operational risk, and cyber risk. Chapter authors focus on the distinctive features of their subject and also draw out the overarching themes that apply to all forms of risk management. Part Two introduces and explains emerging trends, from risk-based thinking to communicating uncertainty and ethical risk to risk-based decision-making.
