This special offer provides an opportunity to gain foundational understanding of the standard FAIR risk taxonomy and risk analysis model.

The training course, accredited by the Open Group, is available online for self-paced learning for 90-days after signup, and includes video classes taught by experienced FAIR practitioners, with instructor review and feedback on practice risk assessments.

Luke Bader is Director, Memberships and Programs for the FAIR Institute. 

FAIR (Factor Analysis of Information Risk) is the international standard model for risk quantification used by large enterprises and government organizations as a foundation to manage cybersecurity and operational risk from the business perspective, in financial terms. Over 8,200 FAIR practitioners have joined the FAIR Institute, representing 35% of Fortune 1000 companies. FAIR is recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Cybersecurity Framework as a best practice for risk assessment and management.

By the end of this course, learners will be able to apply FAIR to accurately model and quantify risk. Graduates of the course who wish to be certified as a FAIR practitioner by the Open Group will receive a 50%-off voucher for the exam.

This offer is only for active students and professors with a “.edu” email address. Please do not request a code if you do not fall in that criteria.

Academics: If you are looking to expand FAIR knowledge into a course, the FAIR Institute offers the FAIR University Curriculum.

The curriculum has been adopted by a growing number of information security and management programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the US and abroad.

Check out the universities – including Carnegie-Mellon, Boston College and San Jose State - that are already teaching FAIR to their students and providing them with the skills to be tomorrow’s risk leaders.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to lbader@fairinstitute.org if you have any questions regarding the free training offer or the University Curriculum.
