Managers Handbook for Business Security

New security managers don't always have the luxury of time to deeply research comprehensive textbooks on security fundamentals before they start taking action to build their programs. The same applies to security practitioners transitioning from the public sector, small companies that do not have a full-fledged security department, and business executives who simply want to understand the security function. The Manager's Handbook for Business Security is built for them.

Designed for ease of use, this book distills the Collective Knowledgeâ„¢ of the SEC's members, faculty and staff into a series of short, focused topics that are presented in concise, actionable, and practical terms. Topics include security leadership, regulation, metrics, training, marketing the program, strategy, and more.

We're offering this chapter, Risk Assessment and Mitigation, as a free download to newsletter subscribers (download the document at the end of this web page).
