Speaker: Jack Freund, Ph.D, M.A., CISSP, CISA, CISM, CRISC, CGEIT, CDPSE, CIPP
Introduction to cyber risk quantification using FAIR. In this session, join the co-author of the award-winning book on the international FAIR standard as he discusses cyber risk quantification. Learn about deficiencies in qualitative risk methods, how FAIR overcomes those problems, and how it complements existing risk management frameworks such as NIST CSF, ISO, and more. Learn how to develop quantitative risk metrics, the role of risk appetite, and how to present quantitative risk results to the Board.
About the Speaker:
- Attending this session will enable you to upgrade you risk analysis capabilities in a flexible way that is agnostic and complementary of the risk or control frameworks you may be using
- This session will also help you better sharpen your soft skills around risk communication to non-technical audiences
