The Security Risk Assessment Handbook: A Complete Guide for Performing Security Risk Assessments provides detailed insight into precisely how to conduct an information security risk assessment. Designed for security professionals and their customers who want a more in-depth understanding of the risk assessment process, this volume contains real-world advice that promotes professional development. It also enables security consumers to better negotiate the scope and rigor of a security assessment, effectively interface with a security assessment team, deliver insightful comments on a draft report, and have a greater understanding of final report recommendations.

This book can save time and money by eliminating guesswork as to what assessment steps to perform, and how to perform them. In addition, the book offers charts, checklists, examples, and templates that speed up data gathering, analysis, and document development. By improving the efficiency of the assessment process, security consultants can deliver a higher-quality service with a larger profit margin.

The text allows consumers to intelligently solicit and review proposals, positioning them to request affordable security risk assessments from quality vendors that meet the needs of their organizations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reduce your information risks with this book 20 Aug 2008
By G. Choo - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Way to Learn about Threat Risk Analysis 25 Mar 2008
By Red - Published on Amazon.com
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.

For all those IT people who aren't extremely technical, should seriously consider getting into CISSP or CISA certification and this as a great read and reference to this line of work.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent 11 Oct 2012
By samrobin - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Dear Mr. Doug Landoll,

I have to give you Kudo's on your book. I just bought it and its awesome!!!! There is a section that is so well written regarding the reporting structure of security and how successful the program will be based on InfoSec placement and support. I've never seen it written so well before. Your book will be a career long reference. I hope you write more books.

Take care,
Daniel Nunez, CISSP, CISM
