While many risk analysts have heard of and know FAIR and the Open FAIR Risk Taxonomy (O-RT), many have not had as much introduction to the companion standard on the Open Group’s Risk Analysis Standard O-RA. In this webinar Mike will present the Open FAIR Risk Analysis standard as it is today and the rationale and scope of the upcoming revisions to both the Open FAIR risk taxonomy (O-RT) and risk analysis standards. He will show how to apply O-RA, and how it can fit with and complement the NIST, CSF, and Bowtie risk analysis methods.
Mike grew up and has worked his entire career in Silicon Valley, CA, where he now heads up his own information risk management consulting practice Trusted Systems Consulting Group and Chairs the Open Group Security Forum, the interest group that sustains the Open FAIR Industry Standard quantitative risk analysis body of knowledge. Prior to that, he has had thirty five years of extensive experience including developing and managing high technology products at Hewlett Packard, managing information security IT projects at Visa, teaching college economics courses at San Jose State University, and leading risk analyses at clients such as the City and County of San Francisco.
Mike’s areas of research interest center on problems that intersect technology, law, and markets and believes that cyber security problems we face now require critical thinking across multiple technical, social, and legal disciplines. He’s a published author, having contributed to three American Bar Association published works and has presented across the country on economics, technology, and security.
Mike has a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from UC Berkeley and a master’s degree in economics from San Jose State University.
