Reduce your information risks with this book Aug. 20 2008
By G. Choo - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I manage information risks for a large organization on a professional basis and this is one of the best books I have read on this important topic. What I found most useful about this book is that it complements rather than competes with formal risk management methods. This book explains techniques and methods that you can use to enhance your existing risk assessment process like data gathering, impact analysis, evaluations and so on. This book should belong on every risk managers bookshelf.

A Great Way to Learn about Threat Risk Analysis March 24 2008
By Red - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I am taking a class on Threat Risk Assessment and one of our main references is Douglas Landoll's "The Security Risk Assessment Handbook". The great thing about this book is that it takes what would normally be extremely dry material and makes it interesting. The book has a conversational tone which is easy to read, and yet still manages to be very informative. A great tool for anyone who wants to learn about security assessments.
Excelent Oct. 11 2012
By samrobin - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In his book, "The Security Risk Assessment Handbook: A Complete Guide for Performing Security Risk Assessments", Landoll transforms what is usually a dry topic into a subject that captures the interest of even the most "technically simple" reader. After reading only a few pages, it becomes clear that Landoll is an expert in this field.

He describes the process of conducting risk assessments, giving reason to and explaining each step along the way. Any questions that the reader may develop are answered. By the end of the book, the reader will know everything there is to know about risk assessments. I highly recommend this read to anyone who is seeking to learn about this subject without feeling as if you were reading a dictionary.
