Introduction to Security Risk Assessments

Abstract

There are many names given to the term security risk assessment. In fact, the actual process of identifying security issues has been called physical security assessment, security survey, security audit, and risk assessment to name just a few. Generally speaking, it is a systematic on-site assessment and analysis of your current security measures, whether they are physical security measures, technology, operations, facilities, security management, policies, training, reports, or any other aspect of your security program or measures. This chapter will help to define the intent of an assessment, who will conduct it, and how to remain objective and unbiased throughout the project.
