Publisher's Summary

The Failure of Risk Management provides effective solutions to significant faults in current risk analysis methods. Conventional approaches to managing risk lack accurate quantitative analysis methods, yielding strategies that can actually make things worse. Many widely used methods have no systems to measure performance, resulting in inaccurate selection and ineffective application of risk management strategies. These fundamental flaws propagate unrealistic perceptions of risk in business, government, and the general public. 

This book provides expert examination of essential areas of risk management, including risk assessment and evaluation methods, risk mitigation strategies, common errors in quantitative models, and more. Guidance on topics such as probability modelling and empirical inputs emphasizes the efficacy of appropriate risk methodology in practical applications. 

Recognized as a leader in the field of risk management, author Douglas W. Hubbard combines science-based analysis with real-world examples to present a detailed investigation of risk management practices. This revised and updated second edition includes expanded coverage of innovative statistical methods and new cases of current risk management issues such as data breaches and natural disasters.

Ready to shake your world?

Compelling and insightful. Caution: understanding the concepts put forth in this book will ruin your current (happily ignorant) acceptance of the article irresponsible and juvenile state of IT risk management promulgated by the industry and its lazy standards and certification bodies. Proceed at your own risk.
