Live FAIR Fundamentals Training Course pre-RSA® Conference 2020
February 23 - 24, 2020  ·  Hyperdrive Agile Leadership


Join us for two days of on-site learning prior to the RSA® Conference 2020, for the Introductory FAIR Analysis Fundamentals Course. Led by FAIR experts from our technical advisor, RiskLens®, this workshop-style course will walk you through a foundational introduction to FAIR's core principles and enable analysts like you to: 

  • Recognize the challenges associated with commonly used risk assessment approaches
  • Distinguish the advantages and limitations associated with FAIR
  • Internalize and apply basic risk concepts and terminology
  • Understand common measurement challenges and how to effectively and consistently overcome them using measurement concepts
  • Ultimately performing quantitative risk analyses

You will learn firsthand from the experts: FAIR is the only standard quantitative model for cybersecurity and operational risk. Prepare to take your career to the next level: analysts trained in FAIR can build an effective approach to improved risk analysis and management, helping their organization not just thrive, but succeed. At the completion of this course, you will be able to apply FAIR principles in all aspects of business: from identifying control weaknesses and concentrations of risks, to optimizing security mitigation budgets, FAIR will become your new standard.


Both existing FAIR Institute members and non-members are welcome to partake.
