What Is FAIR?

Factor Analysis of Information Risk is the international open standard for cyber risk quantification, recommended as a risk management resource by the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF). The FAIR Institute is a non-profit professional organization dedicated to advancing the discipline of measuring and managing cyber and operational risk, with a worldwide membership representing 50% of Fortune 1000 companies.

Safe Security brings together FAIR and the most advanced AI-powered automated cyber risk management platform, SAFE, to quantify risk in financial terms, firmly positioning cyber risk management as a business enabler.
