What will be the FAIR Conference focus this year?

The theme of FAIRCON24 is "Managing Risk at the Speed of the Business" and will include over two dozen sessions with keynotes, expert panels, breakout tracks, and use case presentations designed to assist the CISO and information security team in confirming their role as business leaders.

What will the training and labs cover?

First and foremost, we will have our regular two-day training session on FAIR Fundamentals, the key course to understand and start to apply the FAIR Model. FAIR Institute’s Head of Education Bernadette Dunn will walk participants through the key concepts of the methodology and will answer any questions about performing risk assessments. If you’re new to FAIR and would like to make the most of the conference, you should consider this as your starting point. 

If you prefer to master the fundamentals before the conference, register with the FAIR Academy, our new learning platform, to find the online version of the Fundamentals course.

In addition to FAIR Fundamentals, we will present lab sessions and workshops on September 30. These sessions will be:

From Theory to Practice: Engaging with FAIR-CAM for Effective Risk Management

Led by Jack Jones, creator of the FAIR Model, Tyler Britton, Principal Security Engineer, Dropbox, and Vidit Baxi, CISO, Safe Security In this day-long workshop Jack, Tyler, and Vidit will not only cover FAIR-CAM basics but they'll also dive deep into how Loss Event Controls work.  This will include the use of a learning application, where participants will get to "play" with FAIR-CAM.  Tyler will also share his experience in applying a stripped-down version of FAIR-CAM "in the wild", and how FAIR-CAM proved to be an excellent medium for getting his colleagues on-board the CRQ bandwagon. 

Workshop participants will come away with a working understanding of FAIR-CAM principles as well as strategies for communicating about controls with their colleagues.
