Meet a Member: CISO Markus Kaufmann Talks Embedding FAIR in the Governance Process at Toymaker Funko

[fa icon="calendar"] Aug 31, 2022 7:30:00 AM / by Jeff B. Copeland

Markus Kaufmann - FAIR Institute Member - CISO - FunkoMarkus Kaufmann came to the toy and collectible maker Funko as CISO last year after 15 years in infosec at banks and insurance companies. “I come from an ISO background,” he says, “ISO 9000, ISO 27000, where it’s let’s repeat the process, let’s improve it every year.”

Now, he’s bringing that discipline to a FAIR program at a much smaller company: “(FAIR) is a great process, let’s cycle through it year after year and improve the insights we are getting. We got some great results this year that allowed us to more precisely quantify the risk scenarios that we were looking at.”

Markus will share his experience building continuous improvement into risk management with FAIR at the upcoming FAIR Conference in a Case Study session, joined by his FAIR program consultant, Tom Callaghan. FAIRCON is September 27-28, in-person in Washington, DC, and live online.  Register for FAIRCON22.
