Jack_JonesWelcome to the FAIR Institute

As organizations increasingly rely on digital processes to run their businesses, the need to cost-effectively manage the associated risks has become critical. As a result, information risk, cybersecurity and business executives have been looking for ways to improve their knowledge, their decision-making and their reporting practices related to information risk.

We have created the FAIR Institute to provide a forum where you can meet with peers of leading organizations to learn about digital risk scenarios affecting your industry; to collect and create information risk management best practices; and to learn how to better communicate with your executive team, your board and other key stakeholders about information risk.

Consider joining the FAIR Institute and let us know what aspects of information risk management you would like to see addressed by sending us a message via the Contact page.
