Cybersecurity at What Cost? Risk Management Pioneer Jack Jones Takes a Future Look at RSA Conference in San Francisco

FAIR Institute Founder/Chairman and Quantitative Cyber Risk Leader to Headline RSA Conference Seminar June 8; FAIR analysis fundamentals training virtual webinar June 5-6

RESTON, Va., June 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With cybersecurity threat events and costs continuing to escalate, Jack Jones, founder and chairman of The FAIR Institute, and one of the foremost experts on quantitative cyber risk analysis, will share his insights into The Future of Cybersecurity Risk Measurement, in person at the 2022 RSA Conference at Moscone Center in San Francisco, Wednesday, June 8, 8:30 a.m. PT.

A virtual two-day webinar, FAIR Analysis Fundamentals Training, will precede Jones' presentation Sunday, June 5-Monday, June 6. The session offers a technical outlook on cyber and technology risk as well as communicating on risk in business terms that organizations' leadership demands.

Jones is considered one of the most original thinkers in cybersecurity and risk, creating FAIR™ (Factor Analysis of Information Risk) and subsequently The FAIR Institute, a global non-profit professional organization dedicated to advancing the discipline of measuring and managing risk. He is a tireless advocate for a quantitative, business-aligned approach to cyber risk at industry conferences and in his writing (including the FAIR book, Measuring and Managing Information Risk).

Once one of the only voices against conventional wisdom that cyber risk could not be understood in financial terms, Jones now is a respected thought leader who is reshaping the risk management and cybersecurity professions. He recently introduced the FAIR Controls Analytics Model (FAIR-CAM™) that for the first time enables a quantitative approach for reliable analysis of the effectiveness of controls and controls systems.
