Early adopters (2011) and still on the cutting edge of FAIR practice – that’s the team led by Roland Cloutier Corporate VP and Global Chief Security Officer at ADP, the giant payroll processor.
A busy week at the RSA Conference for the FAIR Institute. Tuesday at the SC Awards ceremony, the FAIR Institute received the extraordinary honor of being named one of the Most Important Industry Organizations of the Last 30 Years.
SC Media honored the FAIR Institute as one of the three "Most Important Industry Organizations of the Last 30 Years" at the 2019 SC Awards ceremony last night in San Francisco during the RSA Conference.
Second in a series of interviews of attendees at last year’s FAIR Conference, we asked three FAIR Institute members for quick notes on their experiences getting started and proving the value in cyber risk quantification.
FAIR Institute Memberships and Programs Director Luke Bader sat down with Jack Freund, Cyber Risk Director for TIAA and co-author with Jack Jones of Measuring and Managing Information Risk: a FAIR Approach, for a quick but wide-ranging conversation.
We hope that you're already planning to attend FAIR Institute's annual FAIR Conference, FAIRCON19, later this year on September 24 and 25. Take advantage of our "Early Bird" pricing special, available through March 31.
For the past three years, the FAIR Institute has been leading the charge in changing the risk management industry and promoting better practices in information security and operational risk with Factor Analysis of Information Risk – FAIR.

I like this quote as I think it actually can draw comparisons to talented risk analysts.
Yesterday, while speaking to a university cybersecurity class, I was accused of being pedantic when I pointed out a problem with the phrase “The risk of that impact…”
While I could easily write a novella focused solely on the many benefits of FAIR over other risk analysis methods, there is an important caveat to keep in mind when conducting FAIR analyses: The analysis is only as reliable as the analyst who conducted it.
