Open FAIR™ Foundations (OFR_120)

Cyber Risk Quantification Training

"Open FAIR™ Foundations was both interactive and informative. Being entirely new to FAIR, I liked the fact that class was spread out across several days (making the material more digestible) and instructors were always available for questions.  The occasional real life examples and study group sessions were also helpful in gaining a better understanding.  The class exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the FAIR methodology."
