In any risk analysis there will always be some degree of uncertainty and bias. Learn the most common reasons why organizations struggle to manage risk effectively, and how to avoid those same mistakes. Areas of focus include cognitive bias, calibrated estimates, and assessment confidence techniques. Using elements of Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR), security professionals can better measure and prioritize their potential risk exposure. Explore how to identify different kinds of bias during the analysis process, and how to adjust for it. This workshop style session includes interactive exercises to reinforce the concepts of group analysis dynamics and calibrated estimation.
