Product Overview

The result of over 40 years of research on risk assessment, this book provides a practical, real-world guide to implementing the same risk assessment methodologies developed by the authors at Sandia National Labs.  This methodology has been used by the General Services Administration to assess, evaluate and respond to potential risk at over 8,400 GSA buildings and offices in the US, by the Army Corps of Engineers for over 100 critical dams, by the DoE to assess the risk to the national power grid and energy transmission network, and through the author's work with numerous private corporations, has been used to evaluate dozens of commercial offices throughout the country. 

This professional’ s practice guide addresses, through a step-by-step and systematic approach, “ how to” perform a full risk assessment that assists the project owner and manager decide “ why to” either accept the calculated risk and implement only base-line measures, if any, or “ why to” reduce the risk to a more acceptable level with the application of performance-based alternative security upgrades or consequence mitigation measures.
