The second day of the 2018 FAIR Conference at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh was all about digging deeper to show in action the benefits for which FAIR and quantitative cyber and operational risk analysis are known: clarifying communication about risk up and down the chain of command and showing the ROI of difficult investment decisions such as buying cyber insurance.
At the 2018 FAIR Conference at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh yesterday, the FAIR Institute announced the winners of the annual FAIR awards honoring three leaders in cyber and operational risk management and security for their roles advancing business-aligned and data-driven cultures in their organizations and the profession.
The 2018 FAIR Conference kicked off at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh with a session-packed day that was a crash course in strategizing and implementing a risk-based, business-aligned security strategy. Some highlights:
Jack Jones, FAIR Institute Chairman and creator of the FAIR model, gave a wide-ranging keynote speech for the 2018 FAIR Conference on “The Next Frontier in Risk Management”, that was both a candid look at the challenges faced by the risk profession and a call to action to move up to true risk management maturity.

While we’re still learning the details of that massive data breach at Facebook – account keys for 50 million users stolen, and potentially wider impact as the same keys were used to log in to third party accounts – FAIR Institute Chairman Jack Jones says this incident, like others before it, exposes some of the shaky underpinnings of cybersecurity risk management.
