Evolver expands its team of FAIR Certified Analysts
FAIR Certified Analysts give our clients the assurance of higher-level expertise and support through the risk quantification process.
In support of our rapidly growing cybersecurity and risk management client base, Evolver announces that we have expanded our team of Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) Certified Analysts.
At Evolver, we work with business leaders to identify business risk elements and then apply the FAIR model to determine quantitative risk. We use the FAIR model to analyze and report quantitative risk exposure.
Jack Jones, Chairman, The FAIR Institute, said,
“As an early leader in FAIR based risk services, Evolver again sets itself apart from others in the industry by helping their clients make better-informed decisions. Evolver’s investment in building strong FAIR expertise shows a commitment to client success, and their involvement in the FAIR Institute demonstrates a commitment to the industry overall.”
FAIR is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for monetary quantification of cyber risk.
Increasingly, Fortune 500 companies and government groups use the method for monetary risk calculations that can be briefed to board of directors and other senior leadership. With the added certified staff, Evolver continues its growth as a leader in conducting FAIR analysis across several industries.
The Open Group, a global consortium with more than 500 member organizations, leads the development of open, vendor-neutral IT standards and certifications. It has chosen FAIR as the international standard information risk management model and provides the certification course and exam.
FAIR has been recognized by the NIST Cybersecurity Framework organization as a complimentary model for monetarily quantifying cyber risk.
The FAIR Institute is a non-profit professional organization dedicated to advancing the discipline of measuring and managing information risk. They have emerged as the standard Value at Risk (VaR) framework for cybersecurity and operational risk. The FAIR Institute provides information risk, cybersecurity, and business executives with the standards and best practices to help organizations measure, manage, and report on information risk from the business perspective.
