“In my experience, the employees (and the organization as a whole) are usually aware of only 25 to 40% of risks,” says author Dejan Kosutic. “Therefore, a thorough and systematic process needs to be carried out to find out everything that could endanger the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their information.”

From the simple explanation of requirements, steps in risk management, development of methodology, and which documents are required for risk management – you will quickly see that this is the only book you’ll ever need on the subject.
