Somehow I've collected more websites over the years than I expected. This Smartlist is the one website to rule them all.

Security Risk Management Body of Knowledge: Julian Talbot, Miles Jakeman: 9780470454626: Books

Miles and I started to write a book about Security. Before we knew it, the Risk Management Institution of Australasia, John Wiley & Sons of NY, and over 100 contributors were involved in producing SRMBOK. But that's another story. For the moment, it's reasonably well regarded and seems to still be useful to many. You can also download some free supporting materials from and Enjoy. Julian


Some useful articles, and a few ruminations. Here you will find a collection of practical ideas and concepts, designed to help you get promoted, reduce stress, and stay one step ahead. This website is my main website. It is where I publish most of my articles on topics such as risk management, success, security, life, and the future. Many of which will grow into full blown books one day. FREE STUFF: Every so often I make my books available for free on Kindle. if you subscribe to my admittedly rare (and therefore more valuable?) email newsletters I will let you know when I am making them free for a couple days every few months. There are also several templates and PPTX files which you are welcome to download and use or modify. Last but not least, if you have a particularly gnarly or interesting question, drop me a line and if I can answer it, I'll usually do so in an article.


My professional life story. Or at least, some highlights. I also write articles on LinkedIn and share insights or articles a couple of times a day that I think are likely to inspire and help people achieve their goals. You'll find more personal stories in the other links such as some stories from my adventures in Africa (hint there is an elephant in the photo for that link) are the most interesting. Trust me.

What I'm currently writing and thinking about ...

This link will take you to my posts and articles on LinkedIn. I regularly post ideas and topics that interest me here. Hopefully they will interest you also. Most of my books and articles start out as short posts, that turn into a pile of research, then one or more (usually more) articles on LInkedIn or my website ( before some of them turn into books. If I have my way, they will all turn into riveting (or at least useful :-) books.

Risk Management Performance Benchmarking

Every year we spend billions of dollars on risk management - mostly without any real assessment of the effectiveness of those resources. How do you tell if the x million dollars spent last year on risk mitigation actually delivered benefit and/or reduced risk?

Travel Blog (I'm the short one in the photo)

My favorite word in the English language is 'peregrinate' which means to travel, especially on foot. My favorite word in any language is 'belum' which is Indonesian for 'not yet'. As in: "Have you been to Botswana?" Answer: Belum. PHILOSOPHY: Life is like pocket money; you shouldn't spend it all in one place. This blog is out of date but it has some tales from a couple of years in Africa. You've probably heard of 'TIA' (This is Africa). There is a corollary to that and most of the stories reinforce the AWA factor (Africa Wins Again) but hey, we had a lot of fun, learned a lot, and hopefully even left the place a little better than we found it.

If you share this link and 2 others share it and so on, we use the power of exponential math in our favor. Which seems appropriate given the virus is using that same exponential math against us.
