In addition to being a comprehensive source of highly useful reference material, this timely work also introduces the paradigm shift in thinking that is subtly moving us away from the Force Protection Doctrine toward an All-Hazards approach to CIP. To this end, it re-introduces the term called Critical Infrastructure Assurance (CIA). Keeping pace with this development, the authors demonstrate how emergency management and CIA go hand in hand.

This changing world of ours in which emergency preparedness is finding a permanent niche requires us to integrate and incorporate emergency management and homeland security concepts with infrastructure assurance options. Ultimately, to keep our society both prepare and psychologically healthy we must be able to assure that infrastructure services will continue operating no matter what disaster may befall us.

Book News Annotation:

Radvonovsky and McDougall run a private research enterprise investigating concepts surrounding critical infrastructures, how they are impacted, and how they may be preserved. Here they describe what they call significant strides in understanding the fundamentals behind securing, protecting, and safekeeping US infrastructure. Among their topics are critical infrastructure assurance, the national incident management system, emergency preparedness and readiness, assessing security vulnerability, information sharing and analysis centers, and supervisory control and data acquisition. The first edition is said to have been published nearly four years ago. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
