Keynote Address: Trusting Risk-Informed Decisions with Jack Jones

Video with Slides | FAIRCON

I am very honored to present our Day 2 Keynote Speaker this morning, Jack Jones, author of the FAIR model and Chairman of the FAIR Institute presenting today “Trusting Risk-Informed Decisions.” Trusting those risk measurements is one thing, being able to defend them is quite something else.  In today’s keynote, Jack will highlight the difference and help us to understand what it takes to have risk measurements that are trustworthy.

Jack has worked in information security for over thirty-five years, ten years of which as a CISO with three different companies, including a Fortune 100 company. In 2012 Jack received the CSO Compass award for risk management leadership. An adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon University, he teaches in the CRO and CISO executive programs.

Jack created the “Factor Analysis of Information Risk” (FAIR) model which has been adopted as an international standard. Currently, Jack is the Chief Risk Scientist at RiskLens and Chairman of the FAIR Institute, our award-winning global non-profit organization with over 13,000 members worldwide. He has also co-authored a book on FAIR entitled “Measuring and Managing Information Risk, a FAIR Approach” which was inducted into the Cyber Security Canon in 2016.
