Editorial Reviews

"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, Security Risk Assessment " 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", 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, Sep 03, 2014
