9781452290270: A Practical Introduction to Security and Risk Management

A Practical Introduction to Security and Risk Management is the first book to introduce the full spectrum of security and risks and their management. Author and field expert Bruce Newsome helps readers learn how to understand, analyze, assess, control, and generally manage security and risks from the personal to the operational. They will develop the practical knowledge and skills they need, including analytical skills, basic mathematical methods for calculating risk in different ways, and more artistic skills in making judgments and decisions about which risks to control and how to control them.

Organized into 16 brief chapters, the book shows readers how to: analyze security and risk; identify the sources of risk (including hazards, threats, and contributors); analyze exposure and vulnerability; assess uncertainty and probability; develop an organization’s culture, structure, and processes congruent with better security and risk management; choose different strategies for managing risks; communicate and review; and manage security in the key domains of operations, logistics, physical sites, information, communications, cyberspace, transport, and personal levels.

Review:

"An enlightening and informative compendium of essential practices across the broad spectrum of security risk management. An excellent addition to any management library resource for their Security Management System, or a primer for introducing new managers to the intricacies of security and risk management."--John Piper

An extremely well written book which offers the reader a functional comparison of methods of managing risk whilst providing new interpretations on the operational aspects of risk management. The author clearly describes differing standards and helps you navigate and understand the differences between them. An essential for any manager who actively engages in risk management on a daily basis.--Jennifer Catlin

Bruce Newsome has brought together the leading thinking and best practices in security risk management and synthesized them in a way that the student and practitioner of risk management can glean immediate benefit from the application of Dr. Newsome's systematic approach to the field. For the neophyte this book provides a structure for learning about and understanding the multidimensional sources of security risk; for the practitioner it updates best practices; for the general public it teaches us to see risks not as a paranoid looking into every corner or to facing life looking over one's shoulder, but as an element of management of our life, our work and the societal demands to minimize and manage risks responsibly.--Frank Plantan

The material here ties together work that draws from criminology, security studies, risk analysis, and more. The book expertly ties together conceptual, methodological and policy frameworks to produce an essential primer for students, researchers, and practitioners. Dr. Newsome adds important global context by including the standards that have been adopted by different countries to respond to security hazards and threats. This is a must read for anyone interested in risk assessment and management."--Leslie W. Kennedy
