FAIR Institute Kicks Off First in a New FAIRCON Event
RESTON, Va., Feb. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As cybersecurity risks and threats grow in their complexity and financial and operational damage caused to businesses, FAIR Institute, a non-profit professional organization dedicated to advancing the discipline of measuring and managing risk, is introducing a new 2022 FAIR Conference (FAIRCON) event series, launching Thursday, Feb. 24, 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET.
The first event in the series, “Pragmatic Use Cases for Cyber Risk Quantification,” will be offered virtually and is free to members. Six member-led sessions will highlight real examples from businesses and organizations on innovative ways in which they are managing cybersecurity risks through quantification.
“Our FAIR Conference Series will bring members the same level of inspiring, thought-provoking and educational sessions that they may have already experienced at the annual FAIR Conference, albeit in a shorter, more agile format,” said Nick Sanna, president, FAIR Institute. “We are happy to offer them as a supplement to the annual conference that is still taking place in fall 2022. For any organization that is not a member, getting involved is simple through our website.”
The series was created in response to member requests for practical ways of adopting the Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR™) model in the enterprise and for easier means by which to consume and report cyber risk data to their executive teams to help minimize cybersecurity threats. FAIR is the only international standard analytics model for information security and operational risk. FAIR helps organizations quantify and manage risk from the business perspective and enables cost-effective decision-making.
