Topic: Intro to Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIRTM)

Join us for this presentation by Cary Wise, Head of Partner Professional Services for RiskLens,

Time and Location: April 21st, via Zoom Meeting 12:00-1:00pm

Summary:  Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIRTM) is the only international standard quantitative model for information security and operational risk.

  • FAIR provides a model for understanding, analyzing and quantifying cyber risk and operational risk in financial terms.
  • It is unlike risk assessment frameworks that focus their output on qualitative color charts or numerical weighted scales.
  • It builds a foundation for developing a robust approach to information risk management.

Cary is the Head of Partner Professional Services for RiskLens, where he has been a leader in risk quantification for the past 3 years. Prior to joining RiskLens, he managed security programs at a Fortune 1,000 manufacturing organization as well as a power utility company. His IT security and risk experience is rooted in the government sector, where he served 12 years in the United States Navy.

Regarding risk quantification, Cary has built and improved programs for multiple Fortune organizations on a global scale and has been a speaker at security conferences on the topic. He is also a FAIR instructor, where he provides education to risk practitioners and executives around the world.

Cary has a BS degree in Organizational Leadership, is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), and sits as the Co-Chairman of the FAIR Institute’s Federal Government Chapter.
