Review:

"It's difficult to write a book that serves both academia and practitioners, but this text provides a firm foundation for novices and a valuable reference for experienced professionals."

--Security Management Magazine

The big problem with many books on risk management is their highly specialized nature. This book is designed primarily as a textbook, but is likely to prove useful to anyone who wants a basic grounding in dealing with natural disasters. It summarizes international standards and best practices, then goes on to offer a chapter-by-chapter discussion of key areas such as IT and emergency management. It also draws a clear distinction between risk management, how to foresee and prevent problems, and business continuity, which tends to deal with consequences. Two case studies, a service company and a manufacturer, are examined throughout the book to illustrate the move from theory to practice
--In the Black,digital newsletter of the Certified Public Accountants of Australia --CPAAustralia

As our world becomes ever more turbulent, the field of business continuity and risk management increases in importance, often warranting Board-level attention....Too many times we have witnessed business disaster because an organization failed to fully recognize the importance of business continuity and risk management or simply adopted a piecemeal and unsystematic approach.

Practitioners constantly emphasize the necessity of a holistic approach and I am pleased to see this new book by Kurt Engemann and Douglas Henderson does just that. It is also important to blend theory with practice in this hands-on field; again this is accomplished by the authors of this book who have extensive academic and business continuity and emergency management experience. They bring the subject to life with rich teaching and learning features, making it an essential read for students and practitioners alike.
