Summary

"An essential resource for security students and professionals, Risk Analysis and the Security Survey, Third Edition provides an understanding of the basic principles of risk analysis. Addressing such topics as cost/benefit analysis, crime prediction, and business continuity planning, the book gives an overview of the security survey, and instructs its readers on how to most effectively produce a survey that will address the needs of any organization." "The Third Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with an eye toward the growing threat of global terrorism. It includes two new chapters, covering such topics as disaster recovery planning, mitigation, and the evolving methodologies that are a result of the Homeland Security Act. Contingency planning, bomb threats, and prevention techniques aimed at addressing post-9/11 security risks are also discussed throughout the book."--BOOK JACKET.
