“This book represents a diversity of voices in an area that is underrepresented,” says Dr. Karen Hardy, founder and creator of the new Flip This Risk® Book series. “The risk management profession needs to expand the number and variety of perspectives when it comes to building a body of literature that supports the field,” she explained.
Dr. Hardy is an award-winning author who has written and contributed to over 12 books (including three textbooks) in business, leadership and risk management, and has dedicated herself to the growth of the risk management industry. She is enthusiastic about forging ahead with this new mission. But despite her own success, she believes more can be done.
“When I say that we need to diversify the thought leadership in the risk management field, I am not only speaking to the need for gender diversity, but also in displaying subject-matter expertise and publishing that knowledge,” says Hardy.
For Dr. Hardy, the goal of the Flip This Risk® Book series is to tackle both of these issues simultaneously, while also creating a platform where executives can engage in creative, written expression. “We are changing the way learning risk management is viewed. We are incorporating stories to help convey this critical expertise. This will also make the information more relatable,” she says.
Flip This Risk® for Enterprise Security features several women authors at the top of their professional game specifically in the security management field: Bridget Guerrero, Rachael Tovey, Barrie Burren, Candace McCabe, Daniella Bove LaMonica, Sonia Travi Knowles, RitaBeth Crague, and Sherry Tucci.
“Security management is one of many types of risk organizations encounter,” says Hardy. “The pandemic introduced both opportunities and challenges for the field. There has never been a better time to look to the industry’s thought leaders for insights, guidance, and clarity.”
