FAIR Analysis Fundamentals Training Course before the 2019 RSA Conference

We will be hosting a FAIR Analysis Fundamentals Training Course before RSAC. On Sunday, March 3 through Monday, March 4, attend the FAIR Training course to learn the conceptual foundation and practical experience necessary to competently perform FAIR analyses. This training course is led by experienced practitioners and will improve participants' abilities to identify, measure, and communicate risk.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Know and apply consistent FAIR-based terminology
  • Know and apply the FAIR ontology to risk scenarios
  • Use various measurement concepts to select scenarios for analysis and estimate risk factors using probability distributions
  • Understand the use of calibrated estimation in quantitative risk analysis
  • Follow a consistent process to scope risk scenarios for analysis
  • Map various controls to corresponding parts of the FAIR ontology
  • Understand and interpret the results of a FAIR analysis
  • Apply their knowledge to case studies, based on real-life analyses

FAIR Analysis Fundamentals prepares learners for the OpenFAIR Certification exam by providing a foundational understanding of the FAIR model and the underlying concepts of FAIR analysis. (16 CPEs, study guide and exam voucher included).

The fourth annual conference will be our largest yet with more sessions, multiple learning tracks, and two optional training courses offered before the conference!

Hosted by the FAIR Institute and our sponsoring partners, the 2019 FAIR Conference brings leaders in information and operational risk management together to explore best FAIR practices that produce greater value and alignment with business goals.
