Last Year's Inaugural FAIR Conference

At last year's inaugural FAIR Conference, attendees enjoyed a day full of enlightening panelist discussions led by industry leaders; presentations aimed at addressing everyone's burning questions regarding risk quantification; and, firsthand lessons from Jack Jones, creator of FAIR. Both attendance and positive feedback surpassed our expectations. 

What Last Year's Attendees Say

"The CISO panel was outstanding!"

"I like the energy in the room [and] the enthusiasm. Part of the conference needs to build and recognize the community of practitioners, which I think this one did! I was able to talk to people about ideas I have and the networking portion was very effective - and necessary."

"The audience was very engaged and the speakers were very good, touching on points that were truly relevant."

What's Different This Year

As with anything, there is always room for improvement. We found that many of last year's attendees (nearly 40%) found so much value in their time at FAIRCON, they wished it was longer. You asked, and we listened! This year, we are pleased to announce that we are extending our conference for an even more in-depth look at how FAIR, the only international standard quantitative model for information security and operational risk, can be applied to organizations. Later this year in October, FAIRCON17 will take place over the course of two days, October 16 and 17, at the Hilton Anatole* in downtown Dallas, TX.
