Learn About Cyber Risk Quantification at FS-ISAC Summit from FAIR Experts at Mass Mutual, Financial Engines

April 11, 2019  Jeff B. Copeland

Two financial industry CISO-level experts on Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR), are presenting at the FS-ISAC Summit in late April in Orlando – and if you’re curious about how cyber risk quantification can help meet NY DFS, GDPR, SEC and other regulatory requirements, as well as clarify and focus your financial institution’s risk management, you’ll want to attend these sessions:

Monday, April 29, 2:00 pm – 2:45 pm, Evan Wheeler, VP, Risk Management and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Edelman Financial Engines speaks on “Quantifying Cyber-Risk: A Crash Course”.  Evan is simply one of the best educators around on FAIR, having implemented quantification programs at several financial institutions, spoken at many industry conferences (and taught the subject at UCLA).

“This session will demystify this topic with some fundamental principles of measurement and risk analysis to help you better understand your organization’s true exposure and how to communicate it effectively,” says the agenda. “Theory will be put into practice and applied to everyday threats that plague security professionals.”

Tuesday, April 30, 2:15 pm – 3:00 pm, Gregory Rothauser, Enterprise Business Information Security Officer at MassMutual, speaks on Closing the Risk Management Loop with Cyber-Risk Quantification. Greg has a wealth of experience with hands-on application of FAIR methods and the RiskLens platform for regulatory compliance, top-risks analysis and more.

As the agenda says, “This session will provide an overview of how to combine FAIR with threat intelligence information, GRC applications and key metrics to complete the risk management life cycle of identify, respond and monitor.”

If you’re interested in furthering FAIR training for your organization, know that the FAIR Institute and the Global Resilience Federation (GRF)–a non-profit hub for industry groups, including FS-ISAC have a strategic partnership that includes providing discounted FAIR training to GRF members through the RiskLens Academy.

Note: RiskLens’ CEO Nick Sanna will be attending the FS-ISAC Summit and is available to discuss our cyber risk quantification platform, the only application purpose built on the standard FAIR model.  Contact us to arrange a meeting.
