First consulting firm to become a strategic sponsor, Protiviti joins community of companies supporting the FAIR model for information risk management
RESTON, Virginia – August 12, 2019 – Global consulting firm Protiviti has joined the FAIR Institute community as a Founding Sponsor in Advisory Services. The strategic sponsorship includes collaboration on thought leadership materials and sponsorship of FAIR’s annual Risk Management Maturity Benchmarking Study, its FAIR conference and various chapter events throughout the next year.
“Cybersecurity incidents continue to take a significant toll on all types of organizations. By using the FAIR model to measure and manage information risk, we help CISOs speak the language of their boards and quantify the resources needed to strengthen their organization’s cybersecurity defenses,” said Andrew Retrum, a Protiviti managing director. “As an Advisory Sponsor with the FAIR Institute, we’re able to evangelize the use of the FAIR model to increase adoption and practical application as a leading security and IT risk management practice.”
The FAIR Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the discipline of measuring and managing information risk. Its Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) has emerged as the international standard model for understanding, analyzing and quantifying information risk in financial terms. The Institute and its 5,600-member community focus on innovation, education and sharing best practices to advance the FAIR model and the information risk management profession.
“We’re excited to have a consulting firm with Protiviti’s caliber of expertise as our first Advisory Sponsor. We look forward to collaborating with the Protiviti team to advance the adoption of the FAIR model and help our members build quantitative risk management programs,” said Jack Jones, chairman of the FAIR Institute.
Protiviti’s Cyber Risk Quantification service, powered by the RiskLens Platform, delivers a continual, data-driven assessment of an organization’s current state of cyber risk. Using the FAIR model, a Protiviti analyst can demonstrate the risk reduction of a control in financial terms and evaluate potential investments in cybersecurity technology to address evolving threats.
