'.. talking of Deep Web'


A FAIR approach to risk

IT Risk Management has quickly evolved from something we did once or twice a year to a full time practice within organizations large and small. As more and more data becomes available and with the understanding that taking risk is essential to doing business, we are looking for new approaches to bring the technical and business components of risk together. FAIR (Factor Analysis of Information Risk) is a risk ontology that can help organizations in understanding, communicating, and addressing information risk at all levels. In this presentation we will explore FAIR as a tool for organizations and the value it brings to all players on the risk playing field.
