Risk management has changed dramatically since the 2008 financial crisis...and new developments in technology and communications demand up-to-the-minute approaches for defending against threats - and seizing opportunities.

This critical reference - now extensively updated - provides readers with the tools and information they need to keep their organizations as blissfully risk-free as possible. The second edition helps readers recognize both internal and external exposures, understand crucial concepts such as risk mapping and risk identification, and align risk opportunities with their organization's business model.
