FAIR Institute Chairman Jack Jones speaks at InfoSecWorld in Orlando, Thursday, April 6, on the Risk Management Summit panel.
Jack is the author of Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR), the standard quantification model for cybersecurity and operational risk (read about it in Jack’s book: Measuring and Managing Information Risk, A FAIR Approach). Jack is also a co-founder of RiskLens, providing the only enterprise risk quantification application based on FAIR.
Jack will speak on “Revisiting the Groundwork”, suggesting a common approach for the industry to define and approach risk.
He will be joined on the panel by
- Evan Wheeler, Director Information Risk Management at MUFG Union Bank. Evan is a specialist in building and running risk programs for organizations in highly regulated environments, and is the author of the book Security Risk Management: Building an Information Security Risk Management Program from the Ground Up. Evan leads the Operational Risk Workgroup for the FAIR Institute. He will speak on “Analytical Mistakes and Group Bias”, explaining why risk measurements tend to be unreliable and lacking in credibility.
- Ron Woerner, Director of CyberSecurity Studies at Bellevue University. Ron has over 20 years of corporate experience in Information Technology and Security, and has worked for HDR, TD Ameritrade, ConAgra Foods, Mutual of Omaha, CSG Systems, and the State of Nebraska. Ron will introduce a simple process for measuring risk that will set up some group exercises to follow.
After the exercises, Jack will return to the podium for a wrap-up session on “Making the Case for Risk Management”—how to clearly communicate risk analysis to management.
The InfoSecWorld Conference and Expo (April 3-5, 2017, at the Omni Orlando) is organized by MIS|TI, the training institute for information security and audit professionals.
