The generally accepted model for risk is that it is a function of frequency (some refer to it as probability or likelihood, i.e., how often the loss event will probably occur in a given time frame) and magnitude (how bad the event will probably be, consequences).

We are very excited to be partnering once again with the annual RSA Conference (RSAC21) to host multiple FAIR Institute-led events and sessions over the course of the conference in May.
