(ISC)² and RiskLens Announce Business Partnership to Help Members Demonstrate Cybersecurity ROI

(ISC)² Members Can Access Risk Analytics Platform to Manage Cybersecurity Economics


Clearwater, Fla. and Spokane, Wash. — Oct. 26, 2016: (ISC)²® and RiskLens, Inc. today announced a business partnership to empower CISOs and cybersecurity professionals to assess the financial impact of their security initiatives and facilitate smarter board-level guidance and decision making.

(ISC)² members will have access to training on FAIR, the international standard cyber risk quantification model, as well as to RiskLens’ Cyber Risk Quantification platform that is purpose-built on FAIR.

(ISC)² members are eligible to receive 50% off of FAIR training, and a 30% discount on the first-year subscription to RiskLens. 

When it comes to cyber risk, information security professionals and their board directors often speak a different language, making it difficult to understand the impact of decisions and demonstrate ROI. 

“FAIR provides a standard taxonomy that can help our members articulate cybersecurity risk in consistent terms across their organizations and a model for assessing risk in quantifiable terms. We believe that the partnership with RiskLens will enable our members to become more effective communicators and enable cost-effective decision making,” said David Shearer, (ISC)² Chief Executive Officer.

“The time has come to manage cybersecurity not just from the technical compliance perspective, but from the business perspective. Business leaders and regulators alike are increasingly demanding the prioritization of cybersecurity initiatives based on their capacity to reduce risk. We commend (ISC)² for providing its members a standards-based approach to meet those demands,” said Nicola (Nick) Sanna, CEO of RiskLens.”
