Security has been a human concern since the dawn of time. With the rise of the digital society, information security has rapidly grown to an area of serious study and ongoing research. While much research has focused on the technical aspects of
computer security, far less attention has been given to the management issues of information risk and the economic concerns facing firms and nations.
This is a very different risk assessment book. Many risk assessment books target
risk assessment practitioners exclusively, providing them with greater technical
insights and complex methodologies to aid in professional practice. Other risk
assessment books provide brief overviews of the risk assessment process and technical
inputs for a lay audience.

quantitative finance, and for graduate students in finance programs’. Practicing
quantitative analysts (“quants”) and research workers will find topics of interest.
There are even essays with no equations for non-technical managers.
To meet the growing demand for safe vegetables, the assessment of understanding and awareness of risk producers of plant protection drugs increasingly are concerned, so that, with appropriate measures of hazards and reduce harmful levels of chemicals in the product. Therefore, this study was to assess the awareness of local people about the risks of plant protection drugs
In this chapter, risk is accounted for by (1) applying a discount rate commensurate with the riskiness of the cash flows, and (2), by using a certainty equivalent factor
In chapter 8, risk is accounted for by evaluating the project using sensitivity and breakeven analysis.
Most of the epidemiological studies which compared breast
cancer risk of active smokers to women who were not
smokers (regardless of their passive smoke exposure) have
found no association of smoking and breast cancer risk. But
several studies found that women who smoked had a
decreased breast cancer risk. It is not uncommon for
epidemiological studies to come to different assessments of
health risk, especially when, as in these studies, the associated
risk is not large.
This report is one of a series from a RAND Project AIR FORCE project, “The Cost of Future Military Aircraft: Historical Cost Estimating Relationships and Cost Reduction Initiatives.” The purpose of the project is to improve the tools used to estimate the costs of future weapon systems. It focuses on how recent technical, management, and government policy changes affect cost. This report examines cost estimating risk analysis methods and recommends a policy prescription. The project was conducted within the RAND...
The second challenge is to ensure that health is prioritized within overall
development and economic policies. This means looking beyond the health
system and addressing the broad determinants of ill-health - low levels of
education, poverty, unequal gender relations, high risk behaviours, and an
unhealthy environment - as well as raising the profile of health within national
poverty reduction and government reform processes.
Adults often view their lives as somehow planned beforehand. What
originally seemed to be unrelated life decisions, like pieces of a jigsaw
puzzle, all came together to form a coherent story. My life seems that
way to me now.
My first passion was the study of mathematics and physics. From the
age of 14, at every Christmas, my parents bought me advanced books on
these subjects. From these, I taught myself calculus and Einstein’s rela-
tivity theories by the age of 15.
Standardized Functional Verification, digital hardware system, verification software, how to verify IP, technical framework
Standardized Functional Verification describes the science of functional verification that applies to any digital hardware system. With a precise and comprehensive terminology this book describes a thorough technical framework for achieving superior results with greater efficiency. It also defines a scientific basis for achieving functional closure and shows how true functional closure can be measured by software.

Acknowledging the tremendous changes in the health care system, this book offers a current and fresh perspective on nursing in the 21st century. A departure from the "medical model", its emphasis on client education, shifting delivery of care, and a collaborative approach fosters a practical view of the challenges the student will encounter in the workplace. Core content areas are covered in detail, including pathophysiology, normal and high-risk pregnancy, and women's health across the life-span.
companion document, entitled Guidance on Safety Performance Indicators (2003), will be published immediately
following the 2nd edition of the Guiding Principles. The Guidance on SPI is designed to assist relevant
stakeholders to establish programmes for assessing their own performance related to the prevention of,
preparedness for, and response to chemical accidents.
The Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology
promotes the U.S. economy and public welfare by providing technical leadership for the nation’s
measurement and standards infrastructure. ITL develops tests, test methods, reference data, proof-ofconcept
implementations, and technical analyses to advance the development and productive use of
You cannot predict the future or control the present—these are prime directives
governing the creation and use of options.
This text takes the mystery out of predicting and profiting from the future price
trends of stocks and futures contracts using fundamental and/or technical analysis
along with option strategies that manage the associated risk. Savvy market operators
have devised methods of attacking the markets aggressively, while protecting
themselves from the daily risk of loss.
he main focus of prudential regulation and supervision of insurers is usually considered to
be the protection of the rights of policyholders. This includes oversight of the continuing ability of
insurers to meet their contractual and other financial obligations to their policyholders. The nature
of insurance business implies the establishment of technical provisions, and the investment in
and holding of assets to cover these technical provisions and a solvency margin.
The balance sheets of life and non-life insurance companies reflect the importance of
technical (insurance underwriting) risks for insurance firms. Life insurance companies
typically have the greater part of their liabilities taken up by technical provisions, in some
jurisdictions more than 80 percent. This reflects the amount that the firm is setting aside to
pay potential claims on the policies that it has written. Correspondingly, more than 90 percent
of the assets of life insurance companies comprise the investment portfolio held to support
