The FAIR Institute is proud to announce that Measuring and Managing Information Risk: A Fair Approach, co-authored by Jack Jones and Jack Freund, was inducted into the 2016 Cybersecurity Canon, which recognizes authors and works of literature that accurately depict the history, milestones, and culture of the modern cybersecurity industry.
The goal of the Cybersecurity Canon is to identify a list of must-read books for all cybersecurity practitioners. Books are nominated and voted upon by cyber security professionals for induction. You can read the full press release here.
Jack Jones, the original author of FAIR and Chairman of the FAIR Institute, commented:
"Jack Freund and I are grateful to the organizers of the Canon Project for this coveted honor. This special citation affirms the need for a comprehensive understanding and practical execution of risk management strategies using the FAIR model. Information risk professionals today are expected to articulate cyber risk in terms that the business and the board can understand, dollars and cents, and to enable cost-effective decision-making.”
