Vienna, VA – June 30th – ISSA, the prominent global association for cyber professionals, is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with the FAIR Institute as part of the overall vision of expanding educational resources to the Cyber and IT community. Recent events forced businesses, large corporations to small family owned operations, to rethink Cyber Security strategy as they abruptly learned measures to protect their network and information in a new world environment.
The FAIR Institute is a non-profit, expert, educational organization made up of over 8,700 members around the world, that is dedicated to advancing the discipline of measuring and managing information risk through the FAIR Model. “We are thrilled to provide ISSA members an exclusive offer to access and utilize our education and resources to further their careers and protect the organizations that employ them,” said Director of Membership and Programs, Luke Bader.
