Take Your Career to the Next Level with Courses from the RiskLens Academy

FAIR Analysis Fundamentals, offered live and online, introduces learners to the FAIR Model and the foundational concepts involved in FAIR analysis. By the end of this course, learners will be able to apply the FAIR model to accurately model and quantify risk and will be prepared for the OpenFAIR Certification exam. The course includes 16 CPE credits, a voucher covering the cost of the exam, and a study guide that prepares you for the exam.
The FAIR Analyst Learning Path, offered online, provides advanced training on the risk analysis process and is intended for learners who understand the FAIR model. This set of courses goes in-depth on how to scope your analyses, collect data and estimates, run your analysis and perform quality assurance, and present results. Built from over 30 years of practical analysis experience, the courses include three hours of instructional videos, numerous downloadable checklists, templates, and guides, and exercises that will be reviewed by FAIR experts. These courses will enable you to conduct high-quality analyses and quickly scale a team of well-trained FAIR analysts. Completion of the full Analyst Learning Path includes 16 CPE credits.

How FAIR Can Be Leveraged

These are some of the ways in which FAIR can provide value:

  • Accurately assess aggregate IT and cybersecurity loss exposure;
  • Identify the significance of control weaknesses and where concentrations of risk exist;
  • Estimate capital reserves and cyber insurance requirements;
  • Optimize security mitigation budgets and project priorities; and
  • Support oversight, governance and compliance requirements.

More Than Innovative Risk Modeling

Key components of the training include effective communication, calibration (a method for making better measurements), and better analyses.

  • Standardizing risk terminology in any organization will streamline communication and provide clarity regarding the risk landscape.
  • Calibration allows for subject matter experts to make accurate estimates in the absence of strong data.
  • While calibration is helping to bridge the information gaps, those gaps are getting smaller as FAIR lets organizations know exactly where to find hard data. In many cases, data already exists and FAIR-trained analysts know how to find and leverage this data.

FAIR Certification

Learners completing the FAIR Analysis Fundamentals course will be provided with a voucher that completely covers the cost of the OpenFAIR Certification Exam, in addition to a certificate of completion.


  • The certification program was designed in a vendor-neutral fashion and ensures analysts understand key learning objectives from the Open FAIR risk analysis and risk taxonomy standards.
  • RiskLens Academy is an Open Group accredited training provider.
  • At the conclusion of training, analysts will have learned all of the knowledge required to be prepared for the Open FAIR certification exam.
  • Online and On-site training both include a voucher for the certification exam, valued at $320, and a study guide to help prepare you for the exam.
  • You will then have the opportunity to test for formal FAIR certification with a voucher provided upon completion of our training course. FAIR certification is issued by The Open Group; testing is completed through Pearson VUE, at one of their numerous locations.
