FAIR Institute Board Member Evan Wheeler is a veteran financial industry risk executive, author, and frequent conference speaker and panelist, particularly on the topic of risk quantification. He’s also one of the most patient and lucid explainers of the FAIR model we’ve ever heard – take a listen to the video of his presentation at the RSA Conference in February, 2017, or read his posts for the FAIR Institute blog.
FAIR Institute Board Member Bill Barouski served as Executive VP and CISO for the Federal Reserve System until mid-2015, overseeing information security for the US central bank, including incident response, as well as information security architecture, standards, policies and programs.
Tony Martin-Vegue leads the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the FAIR Institute, 30 members strong. Tony spoke at the first FAIR Conference in 2016, presenting a case study on measuring DDoS risk using FAIR. In his day job, he’s Manager, Information Security Risk at Lending Club, the online credit marketplace that matches investors with borrowers, bypassing traditional bank lending and passing on the savings to borrowers in lower rates. Lending Club has funded some $25 billion in loans.
