FAIR Institute Summer Book Club Part 2 – Reading the FAIR Book Together

[fa icon="calendar"] Jun 10, 2020 10:44:20 AM / by Rebecca Merritt

Summer Book Club 2020 Part 2All summer, we are reading and discussing the FAIR™ book, Measuring and Managing Information Risk by Jack Freund and Jack Jones, the authoritative text on quantitative cyber risk analysis and risk management, with a new discussion guide every two weeks to help FAIR summer book clubs spark conversation.  

This week, we cover Chapter 4 (on FAIR terminology) and Chapter 5 (on measurement), two key categories for both understanding the FAIR approach and generally clearing up the rampant confusion surrounding risk analysis. Can you define a “loss event” and describe how it would unfold at your organization? Discuss.
