"Total Information Risk Management (TIRM) is a formal process devised by the four authors of this book. It is intended to provide a degree of assurance for data and to help preserve its confidentiality and integrity…Overall the book, and the process that it describes, offer a comprehensive and potentially effective system for protecting data,…" Score: 7 out of, June 2014 "As a book clearly targeted at users who might hopefully adopt TIRM, the discussion is pragmatic and clearly intended to provide resources not only for the implementation of TRIM, but also to assist the technical staff in presenting a business case for using TIRM within an organization. Even if TIRM is not implemented, the questions and issues raised in the book provide a good framework for a broader discussion of the role of information in most organizations.", February 26, 2014 "In today’s information-centric world identifying and mitigating the risk of your data and information assets is fast becoming a necessity instead of a luxury.
