Rothstein Publishing has announced that ASIS International, the world’s largest association for security management professionals, has selected Critical Infrastructure Risk Assessment: The Definitive Threat Identification and Threat Reduction Handbook by Ernie Hayden, PSP (Rothstein Publishing) as its 2021 ASIS Security Industry Book of the Year.
In addition, Tari Schreider’s book on Cybersecurity Law, Cybersecurity Law, Standards and Regulations (2nd Edition), was the runner-up.
“Critical Infrastructure Risk Assessment is the culmination of author Ernie Hayden’s decades of experience assessing and protecting the can’t-fail organizations responsible for national security and public safety,” said Dr. Jennifer Hesterman, chair of the ASIS Book of the Year committee. “As threats to critical infrastructure abound and evolve, risks must be continuously evaluated and security planning and activities tailored accordingly. This extremely well-written and easy-to-digest book is mandatory reading for everyone working in a critical infrastructure sector, from seasoned managers to new employees on the front lines.”
The ASIS Security Industry Book of the Year is selected by a panel of ASIS members who review member-authored titles using criteria including relevancy to today’s security threats, importance of the subject in the field, and the uniqueness of the coverage of a new security concept, idea, or technology.
