Interested in getting FAIR-certified or expanding your knowledge of FAIR principles? Join us for optional conference add-on courses before FAIRCON2020. This year, we are offering multiple FAIR Training courses in partnership with our Technical Advisor, RiskLens.
We are offering three training courses in a variety of ways:
Both existing FAIR Institute members and non-members who attend FAIRCON2020 are welcome to partake in these optional add-on training courses.
RiskLens® has been delivering risk-focused training for over ten years and our facilitators are among the foremost experts in FAIR and technology risk. We not only cover all relevant and important concepts around risk quantification and the FAIR framework, but also apply that knowledge in classroom-led case study analyses to ensure each participant has practical application experience. Risk analysts who complete the training program will gain a set of analytical skills as well as an improved ability to identify, measure, and communicate risk.
Without a properly-scoped risk scenario, FAIR analysis is impossible. In this course, we'll introduce the risk analysis sub-process (a part of the larger Risk Management Process) and thoroughly discuss the first task in that sub-process, properly scoping an analysis. Learners will be able to clearly define the asset, threat, and effect involved in a given scenario and use those elements to craft a clear and succinct scenario statement.
Collecting data and working with subject-matter experts to gather calibrated estimates can be the most difficult part of a FAIR analyst's job. How do you clearly communicate the scenario to your SMEs? How do you get time on their calendars and make sure you're asking them the right questions? In this course, we'll take the analysis from being properly scoped to being ready to calculate. Learners will be able to choose the appropriate FAIR variables to include in their model of the scenario, will understand the importance of writing context-specific questions for each FAIR variable in their model, will be able to explain their analysis and what they need to the SME, and will be able to properly structure and conduct calibrated estimation sessions.
It's essential to perform quality assurance on analysis results, and not to just blindly trust the numbers that come out of the Monte Carlo analysis engine. Executing on a quality assurance checklist will ensure that the results align with the provided estimates and haven't been marred by typos or placement of estimates into the wrong variable in the model. Learners will be able to perform this quality assurance on analysis results as well as on their documented rationale before they proceed to preparing a results presentation.
An analysis isn't very valuable if you can't clearly communicate the results to inform decision-makers. In this course, participants will learn how to interpret and explain Annualized Loss Exposure, how to view breakdowns of forecasted losses by asset, threat, and loss type using the RiskLens software, and how to combine all of the relevant information about the analysis into a brief but effective results presentation.
The FAIR Analyst Learning Path assumes foundational knowledge of the FAIR model, calibrated estimation, measurement concepts, and other topics from the FAIR Analysis Fundamentals course. It is only recommended for participants who have already completed that course, either online or in-person, or who have extensively studied FAIR via other means.
