Cybersecurity at what cost? Risk management pioneer Jack


RESTON, Va., June 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the events and costs of cybersecurity threats continue to mount, Jack Jones, founder and president of the FAIR Institute, and one of the world’s foremost experts in the quantitative analysis of cyber risks, will share his ideas on The future of cybersecurity risk measurementin person at the RSA 2022 conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco on Wednesday, June 8 at 8:30 a.m. PT.

A two-day virtual webinar, Training Fundamentals of FAIR analysiswill precede Jones’ presentation from Sunday, June 5 through Monday, June 6. The session provides a technical perspective on cyber and technology risks as well as the business risk communication that leaders of organizations require.

Jones is considered one of the most original thinkers in cybersecurity and risk, founding FAIR™ (Factor Analysis of Information Risk) and later The FAIR Institute, a global nonprofit professional organization dedicated to advancing the discipline of risk measurement and management. He is a tireless advocate of a quantitative and commercial approach to cyber risk at industry conferences and in his writings (including the book FAIR, Measure and manage information risk).

Once one of the only voices against the conventional wisdom that cyber risk cannot be understood in financial terms, Jones is now a respected thought leader reshaping the risk management and cybersecurity professions. He recently presented the FAIR Controls Analysis Model (FAIR-CAM™) which allows for the first time a quantitative approach for a reliable analysis of the effectiveness of controls and control systems.
