Plenty of opportunities to learn the basics or sharpen your skills on Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR™) at the big security show in San Francisco next week – conference organizers have named FAIR among the major themes of the year in their RSAC 2020 Trend Report (see #7 “Frameworks, Frameworks, Frameworks”). Looking forward to seeing you at these events:
