Philip J. Palin, a risk management practitioner, has put together an online library of “a reading list for a graduate symposium in homeland security.” It looks like a great resource, headed, no surprise, by the 9/11 Commission Report. Also includes such material as Global Risks 2014, and Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds, as prepared by the National Intelligence Council.
While not precisely fireside reading, it looks like the list will make/keep you deeply informed on the security field. Palin is requesting advice on “What else would you insist be on the list? What would you remove from my list without a second thought?” A colleague-oriented guy.
