We are happy to announce that the annual FAIR Institute Breakfast Meeting during the RSA Conference 2018, will be held in downtown San Francisco from 7:30 - 10 AM on April 18, 2018.
Earlier this month, The FAIR Institute partnered with The Open Group to submit comments and recommendations to the draft version 1.1 of NIST's Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF). The NIST CSF and its Framework Core were created in 2014 to provide guidance on how organizations can better “Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover” when assessing cyber threats.
Careful, risk analysts – it’s easy to miss the difference between these sound-alike pairs of terms when you scope a FAIR risk analysis:
- Probability vs. Possibility
- Loss Event vs. Threat Event
- Contact vs. Threat Event
Imagine this – an issue is assigned to your risk analyst team, either by your management, someone in the business, or perhaps it's some area of weakness your own team identified. After completing the analysis, now it's time to prepare a presentation on the risk results.
When I was recently asked to write a blog post making cyber and technology risk predictions for 2018, I balked. If you’ve read (and you should read) Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction (Dan Gardner and Philip Tetlock), you’ll understand why.
The FAIR Institute has seen fantastic growth in 2017 and we would like to thank all of our members and partners for helping to spread the message of FAIR.
On his recent FAIR Institute Cyber Risk Workgroup Call (membership required), FAIR model creator Jack Jones fielded this question: If you had to judge an organization in terms of how well it manages risk using just one metric, what one metric would you use?
What an exciting time for FAIR! In the last few months, over 250 people have been through the online and in-person FAIR analyst training course taught by the experienced FAIR consultants of RiskLens. Many of those participants desire to obtain the Open FAIR certification.
