The Open FAIR Certification for People program is aimed at meeting the needs of risk analysts and organizations employing risk analysts. The program is based on the Open FAIR (Factor Analysis of Information Risk), which provides a model and taxonomy for understanding, analyzing, and measuring information risk.
The Open FAIR Certification Program is based on the Open FAIR™ Body of Knowledge, which is comprised of two standards:
- • The Open Group Risk Taxonomy (O-RT) Standard that provides a standard definition and taxonomy for information security risk, as well as information regarding how to use the taxonomy.
- • The Open Group Risk Analysis (O-RA) Standard that provides risk analysts with the specific processes necessary to perform effective Open FAIR risk analysis.
