History of the FAIR Institute


The FAIR Institute was born following the promotion of FAIR by Jack Jones and RiskLens (previously known as CXOWARE) at many risk and informations security conferences, the publication of the FAIR book and the recognition of FAIR as an international standard. Many FAIR practitioners and executives at organizations that are standardizing on FAIR as their information risk methodology expressed the need for an independently governed community of FAIR practitioners. RiskLens helped foster the developing organization and took the role of Technical Advisor to the FAIR Institute.
