Caleb discovered FAIR through Jack Jones’ book Measuring and Managing Information Risk while working at the US Department of Agriculture and looking or a way to prioritize information security risks. The book struck a chord with him based on his experience as a submariner for the US Navy: “When your goal its being undetectable,” he says, “almost everything presents a risk to safety and the mission. I really learned the importance of quickly identifying risk into categories and prioritizing. ‘When everything is a risk, nothing is’ can be a very dangerous mindset that experienced submariners have to be intentional to avoid.”

Congratulations, Caleb, on winning the FAIR Ambassador Award for 2022!
