Inaugural FAIR Institute and AISA Combined Sydney Branch Meeting

Nov 24, 2020 12:00 PM Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney

Registration link:


The FAIR Institute Sydney Chapter and Australian Information Security Association Sydney Branch (AISA) welcome you to an opportunity to initiate and expand upon your capability in quantitative risk management using FAIR. This meeting will focus on applying the FAIR methodology to the new NISTIR 8286 standard connecting Cybersecurity to Enterprise Risk Management (ERM).

The increasing frequency, creativity, and severity of cybersecurity attacks means that all enterprises should ensure that cybersecurity risk is receiving appropriate attention within their enterprise risk management (ERM) programs. NISTIR 8286 is intended to help individual organizations within an enterprise to manage their cybersecurity risks in the context of their broader mission and business objectives.

AISA champions the development of a robust information security sector by building the capacity of professionals in Australia and advancing the cyber security and safety of the Australian public as well as businesses and governments in Australia. NISTIR 8286 provides a blueprint for AISA members to collaborate with their ERM teams by quantifying cybersecurity risk in dollars using the FAIR framework.

Speaker 1 – Denny Wan (founder and co-chair of FAIR Institute Sydney Chapter)

Topic: Applying quantification to NISTIR 8286

A deep dive into the core principles in NISTIR 8286 and the structure of the standard. There are strong parallels between NISTIR 8286 and FAIR focusing on asset and threat identification to inform prioritisation decisions. An introduction to the FAIR framework will be provided with a walk through of the free resources and tools available to cyberrisk and ERM practitioners to get started on their NISTIR 8286 journey.
