Metrics and Methods for Security Risk Management offers powerful analytic tools that have been absent from traditional security texts. This easy-to-read text provides a handy compendium of scientific principles that affect security threats, and establishes quantitative security metrics that facilitate the development of effective security solutions. Most importantly, this book applies these foundational concepts to information protection, electromagnetic pulse, biological, chemical and radiological weapons, theft, and explosive threats. In addition, this book offers a practical framework for assessing security threats as well as a step-by-step prescription for a systematic risk mitigation process that naturally leads to a flexible model for security standards and audits. This process helps ensure consistency and coherence in mitigating risk as well as in managing complex and/or global security programs. This book promises to be the standard reference in the field and should be in the library of every serious security professional.
