Webinar: To FAIR or not?


October 29, 2019
12 Noon to 1 pm
One (1) CPE Credit

David Elfering, VP, Information Security at Werner Enterprises


There are several ways to get the risk assessment wrong.  If the risk is considered a “thing”, and not a “quantity”, we probably got it wrong.  Werner Enterprises adopted the FAIR (Factor Analysis of Information Risk) framework to perform quantitative risk assessment of information security and operational risk.
Dave will walk the audience through their process of adopting FAIR, what worked, what didn’t and the lessons learned as they go through their risk management journey.
