The FAIR Institute is dedicated to encouraging the community to focus on innovation, education and sharing of best practices to advance the FAIR™ cyber risk model and the risk management profession.
Over the past four years, the Institute has grown to over 8,600 members worldwide, and we are excited to continue educating on better risk management practices through risk quantification.
Joining the Institute gives you instant access to a global network of like-minded risk professionals working to implement FAIR at their organizations. It also grants you exclusive access to our vast and ever-growing Resource Library, member discussion boards, Local Chapter Meetings, and more.
We are excited to announce a revamp of our current membership tier structure to encourage individual member engagement, to provide enterprise-level memberships, and to fund the start of new initiatives.
The full details of the new tier structure are below and on our Get Involved page. We are looking forward to welcoming new members!
With this year’s FAIRCON2020 happening virtually, all Institute members get to register for free! Apply for membership today to get access to the premiere risk management conference on October 6 & 7.
