Let’s talk DREAD (threat modeling, not the overwhelming feeling of despair associated with your reoccurring 4:30 p.m. Friday meeting). So, what is the DREAD threat model?
I recently had a conversation with clients around a risk analysis they conducted and noticed as they walked me through it that they seemed to get hung up on the terms “inherent risk” and “residual risk” and the inherent risk definition for that particular scenario.
The terms “risk appetite” and its close cousin “risk tolerance” are often poorly understood, very rarely used to good effect, and commonly used interchangeably.
Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR™) is referred to as the standard model for cyber risk quantification – and it is indeed that highly useful tool for analyzing risk in non-technical, business terms. But it’s also a set of key concepts that enable critical thinking
It was bound to happen. For years, Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR™) was, for all intents and purposes, the only Cyber Risk Quantification (CRQ) model out there.
10 Reasons Why FAIR Is the Standard for Cyber Risk Quantification (Infographic)
"Cyber risk quantification” – it’s a term loosely applied to putting any kind of number on risk in cybersecurity. But there is a highly developed standard for quantitative analysis of cyber risk in the financial terms that support well-informed decision-making: Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR™).
Jack Jones Rebuts ‘FAIR Fatigue’, an Article Filled with Misrepresentations of Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR), the Standard for Risk Quantification
It’s not often that I’m surprised by someone’s actions on the Internet, but I’ll admit to being surprised today.
Why did FAIR™ (Factor Analysis of Information Risk) emerge as the de facto number-one standard model for cyber, technology and operational risk analysis? No other risk model supports defensible quantitative analysis in the financial terms
FAIR vs. Proprietary Cyber Risk Analysis Models: What’s the Difference? Jack Jones Explains
A recent report by an industry research firm stated that, for quantitative cyber risk management, CISOs had to choose among Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR™), proprietary models for risk analysis or a combination of the two.
By quantifying cyber risk in financial terms, Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR™) brings a bottom-line focus to budgeting and spending decisions
