This title gives readers the scientific background and analytic techniques to understand and measure the risk associated with information security threats. Unlike traditional IT security books, it explores the physical nature of information security risk, and in so doing exposes subtle, yet revealing, connections between information security, physical security, information technology, and information theory. It is a useful resource for scientists and engineers with no background in security, and is ideal for security analysts and practitioners who lack scientific training.
