Questions I’ve been asked a lot are: Is it worth quantifying cyber risks and using well-established models to simulate the effects of those risks? Or is quantifying cyber risk a waste of time, detached from reality?
Mark your calendars today! The FAIR Institute’s annual FAIR Conference (FAIRCON20) will take place this year on October 6-7, 2020 in Washington, D.C., at the historic Washington Marriott Wardman Park.
FAIR™ program manager Jason Martin generously shared the learnings from two years of FAIR implementation at Highmark Health, the major hospital and health plan administrator
Join Jack Freund, PhD. and co-author of the FAIR Book “Measuring and Managing Information Risk: A FAIR Approach” and our expert panel for this engaging webinar on Thursday, December 19 at 11 AM EST.
Brandon Myers works IT security for Mastercard but also mission security for the Air Force as a member of the Reserve. We caught up with him at the 2019 FAIR Conference where he had just completed FAIR training (he rated it “amazing”). Brandon had an interesting psychological take on the value of FAIR:
It's official: NIST has formally published FAIR as an Informative Reference to the NIST CSF, the most widely used cybersecurity framework in the U.S, a major milestone in the history of FAIR. This means that there is mapping between FAIR and the NIST CSF standard in the sections covering risk analysis and risk management.
Don’t think of cybersecurity standards and frameworks as checklists – think of them as recipes with plenty of room for “season to taste.” That was the message coming out of a panel discussion at the 2019 FAIR Conference on the topic “Building a Cybersecurity Program with a Risk Management Framework & FAIR,”
Led by FAIR model creator Jack Jones, the panel discussion “CISO Panel: Defining the Goals of an Effective Risk Management Program” at the recent 2019 FAIR Conference, covered a lot of ground. Four chief information security officers - speaking from hands-on experience - discussed everything from building a FAIR program, to briefing the board
Daniel Davis, Security Analyst at Lyft in San Francisco, came to FAIR from an unusual, non-IT perspective – safety engineering. He first came to Lyft to work on safety for autonomous cars. “The way that FAIR defines risk as threat, asset and impact…is very similar to the way that safety engineering has treated hazards for years,” he says.
