Annie Searle & Associates LLC (also known as ASA Risk Consultants) has just published Reflections on Risk II (ISBN 978-0-9839347-6-9) two years after the first volume was issued.
There are a total of 14 authors for the 26 research notes to be found in the new volume. The volume is edited by former ASA research associate Emily Oxenford, who organized the research into the following chapters: Critical Infrastructure, Privacy, Finance, Data Security, Building Resiliency in the IT Sector, and Policies and Governance.
Links to the book are available both on Searle’s Advice From A Risk Detective blog, and at amazon.com. The series is designed to be readable by senior executives as well as subject matter experts. “As they leave the university and become part of a new generation of practitioners, I expect [the authors] to begin to reshape public and private sector understandings of risk frameworks, ethics, policy, strategy and opportunity,” said Searle.
UW senior lecturer Mike Crandall says that the new volume provides “a glimpse into the minds that will be shaping our future” and “continue the tradition of bringing critical issues facing our society to the forefront through a careful combination of education, collaboration and inspiration.” Victoria Tozer-Pennington, editor of The Risk Universe magazine suggests that “the sheer range of current operational risk issues addressed in this book makes it required reading for all risk managers.” The authors of the Reflections on Risk II volume are current members or alumni of the Master of Science in Information Management (MSIM) program at the University of Washington Information School, where Searle is an affiliate faculty member: Daniel Arnaudo, Swati Chaturvedi, Andrew Hansen, Delbert Hazeley, Abbas Khambati, Ilya Krivulin, Devin Luco, Jess Mauer, Suzann Parker, Chitra Raman, Rashmi Shekhar, Rajesh Subramanian, Travis J. Warren, and Divya Yadav.
The first volume in the Reflections on Risk series was published in 2012 and includes 21 research notes. In addition to these two volumes from Tautegory Press, Searle has published both a first and second edition of Advice From A Risk Detective. More about the three publications can be found in the “Books” section of as well as on the www.advicefromariskdetective.com blog.
