Donna Gallaher FAIR Institute Advisory Board MemberThe FAIR Institute is proud to announce the newest addition to the FAIR Institute Board of Advisors, Donna Gallaher, President and CEO, New Oceans Enterprises.

Donna is joining the Board of Advisors with a great level of expertise, having served as a C-Level strategic advisor in IT and cyber strategy for multiple global companies for over 15 years.


Meet Donna and other FAIR Institute Board of Advisors members at the 2019 FAIR Conference. Register for your ticket today.


She has been and continues to be a thought leader in the industry, holding various leadership roles in many top organizations like:

  • Member of the Board of Directors of the Technology Association of Georgia Information Security Society
  • Member of the Evanta CISO Southeast Governing Body
  • Active in the Georgia ISSA and Cloud Security Alliance Chapters

In a recent article, she shared: “I am very excited to be joining the FAIR Institute Board of Advisors because FAIR is key to where the industry is going and for elevating the role of the CISO to a board level advisor. I firmly believe FAIR is the missing link that CISOs need to accelerate their promotion to the board and the business because it defines security risk in financial terms similar to the way organizations assess other risks.” 

Jack Jones, Chairman of the FAIR Institute echoes her enthusiasm: "We welcome a highly skilled and passionate cyber risk executive to our board of advisors. Donna has built a reputation for helping organizations excel as they build security and risk management programs, and our Institute and its members will benefit greatly from her participation. We're looking forward to collaborating in advancing the risk management profession." 

Donna will be using her experience to chair the new FAIR Institute Atlanta Local Chapter. The inaugural meeting for the chapter will be on Thursday,  June 13 from 6-8 PM. Members who are interested in attending can RSVP on FAIR Institute LINK

Local Chapters of the FAIR Institute provide the opportunity to meet with your peers across a variety of industries in your geographical area to learn from each other’s expertise and operational practices and to exchange views on applications of FAIR. Together, you will advance your knowledge of FAIR and expand its range of applications.
