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.

Visibility – one of the keys to effective risk management

By: Jack Jones

Find me on:

Please join me in a webinar on risk management where I’ll pull back the covers and discuss a component of the FAIR framework that hasn’t been shared publicly before.

Although FAIR is primarily known as a framework for quantifying risk, other parts of the framework focus on understanding how to manage risk more effectively. In this webinar I’ll describe the Visibility Analysis component of the framework and how it can provide a source of meaningful metrics and intelligence that helps organizations approach risk more strategically. To learn more and to sign up for the webinar, please go here.

The webinar will take place on November 17th, at 11:30 am Eastern U.S. time.

Hope you can join us.
