Building your Information Risk Management Program

The FAIR Institute is an expert, non-profit organization led by information risk officers, CISOs and business executives to develop standard information risk management practices based on FAIRTM. Since our founding, we have received an increasing number of requests by professors and universities to create a risk management academic program based on the FAIRTM quantitative risk analysis model. We are responding to those academic institutions and to a market demand for risk analysts who are well trained and well versed in quantitative risk analysis. The FAIR Institute has partnered with several universities already teaching FAIRTM based risk management courses to create the best program possible. We are proud to offer the FAIR University Curriculum to all higher education institutions to assist in building future leaders in information and cyber risk management.
