In Volume Four, the author considers communications and information systems. For many this automatically means electronic systems and computers, but the author explains how other older technologies may provide some effective solutions and goes on to relate the ways in which modern electronic technology can dramatically affect risk in other areas of the enterprise, both in introducing new risks and providing solutions for other risk issues. Having considered the way in which communications and information risks related to traditional enterprise structures and operations, the author considered how these new technologies are changing enterprise practices and structures, and how they may develop in the immediate future.

Having initially being published in the traditional manner, with a printed paper hard back book, that then went through two reprints to meet demand, the author moved to the then very new medium of electronic publishing which made updating books easy and provided considerable freedom in the choice of layout and use of colour illustrations.

During 2012, the author began a major revision of his work and this volume of Handbook Number One is one of four volumes, reviewing the approach to true holistic risk management. Handbook Number One in its four volumes is a foundation work that sets the basis for later handbooks addressing parts of risk management in greater detail and to assist those working in specific areas of risk management.
The author wrote the first holistic risk management book in the early 1990s. The book collected together a series of papers written and presented by the author during the preceding twenty years as an evolving concept to enable risk to be addressed proportionately and in relation to the corporate object and cost/benefit analysis.

This is an extremely useful book that can be used for any size of enterprise from the individual to the largest corporation or government enterprise. In its new form, the Risk Manager’s Handbook is also very affordable, even for personal use. The publisher has contributed to the ease of ownership by making the four volumes available a PDF files that can be downloaded from the Internet, and by using an encrypted file format that requires the purchase of a Key Code to unlock the file on a PDF reader device. This provides fast access, and also introduces a known level of integrity because the file is sealed as it has been written and the reader is assured that no one has modified or damaged the file contents.
