Arcady Novosyolov's risk theory web site is an excellent resource for those of us who need to brush up on probability as well as for advanced risk management practitioners in a number of professional disciplines. The focus of the site is financial risk management, but the content is applicable to risk management in general. Among the highlights are: basics and an introduction to risk theory (including lectures), a comprenehsive glossary of terms that also contain formulae, a handbook of distributions and links to other risk management resources.

The following books are my favorites on the software risk management: Managing Risk: Methods for Software Systems Development, Software Engineering Risk Management and Risk Management Processes for Software Engineering Models. If you're looking for an introductory book on project risk I recommend Project & Program Risk Management: A Guide to Managing Project Risks and Opportunities, which covers the basics well.

Harshal Laddha who is a good friend at Thinking Minds's India office shared another outstanding resource: Sridhar Iyer's IIT web page Mr. Iyer is an Assistant Professor at the School of Information Technology, Indian Institute of Technology. His page contains a wealth of information for anyone who works with network technologies.

The presentations, tutorials and papers on this page span wireless and fixed networking technologies, with an emphasis on WAP, M-Commerce and mobile computing. There are also presentations and papers on internet technologies, including tutorials on TCP/IP, routing, network security and other topics. You'll have to dig through the material carefully because some of the links lead to other topic areas that point to yet more material. I spent an hour going through the page and associated links and was thoroughly impressed with the quality of information and the large number of valuable resources.
