An Open Standard

A Common Language

Without a standard model for risk, security and risk teams struggle to communicate to each other and the business. FAIR solves this problem.

An Enterprise Model

FAIR analyses scale for any risk factors, applies to information and operational risk, and integrates with Enterprise Risk Management.


A Quick Look at the FAIR Movement

The FAIR model is sparking a revolution in cyber risk management. More than 10,000 cyber and operational risk professionals have found their way to FAIR via the FAIR Institute, where they can continue to learn more about the model, share best practices and network with peers.

A Common Risk Language
