The CXOWARE Blog

Welcome to the CXOWARE blog. We hope you’ll join us for lively and good natured discussion about risk and risk issues!  We’re risk geeks, plain and simple. We’re big advocates of the Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) framework for quantifying risk.

I'm Writing a Book

By: john.coleman

by: Jack Freund

Earlier this year my good friend Jack Jones and I entered into a contract with Elsevier imprint Butterworth-Heinemann to write a book on the risk assessment methodology FAIR. We will deliver the final manuscript in the fist quarter of 2014 and it should be in print next summer/fall. The title of the book is tentatively called Measuring and Managing Information Risk: A FAIR Approach.

It is a real honor to be able to write about a topic I love with the industry visionary that taught me how to do it.

From the beginning, when Jack and I first began talking about this book (over dinner in the early summer of 2012) we wanted to write a conversational book to teach risk practitioners how to do FAIR. We didn’t want to write a risk textbook, and to be sure this is not a math book. It is very much intended to be an accessible book to help people understand how to take the work they are currently doing in risk management and improve the results quickly using applied methods and techniques. And don’t worry: our trademark senses of humor will be firmly intact throughout (my tongue always seems to be firmly ensconced in my cheek).
