FAIR Training and Certification

The journey to better risk management involves changing existing thought paradigms, developing a solid understanding of the FAIR model, and adopting a common language around risk. Becoming FAIR Trained and Certified will change how you, your team, and your organization view and act on risk. Fully understanding and implementing the FAIR model turns risk professionals into business-aligned leaders, showing their organizations the way to better, more informed, and cost-effective decision-making.

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.
