Cyber Resilience & Board Communication Interview

My piece on Cyber Resilience was recently published by ISACA. Note that their style guide requires that everything with cyber in it be a compound word which makes it read weird. I had a good laugh with them about this. They also interviewed me for ISACA TV on communicating cyber risk to the board andContinue reading “Cyber Resilience & Board Communication Interview”

Open Group Security Forum

The Open Group recently highlighted me in the Individual Contributor Spotlight. I’ve been working with the Open Forum in various capacities since 2012 with the introduction of the Open FAIR certification. Met lots of great people and got to give back. Here’s what they wrote: The Security Forum thanks Jack for his foundational role inContinue reading “Open Group Security Forum”

ISACA CRQ Whitepaper, a Webinar, and More CRQ

A whitepaper I recently wrote for ISACA was published. You can access it here. In this paper I wanted to write about how cyber risk quantification worked broadly, not just in a FAIR context. I hope it gives you a good primer to this topic. I’m also doing an ISACA webinar with my good friendContinue reading “ISACA CRQ Whitepaper, a Webinar, and More CRQ”

I cover Board reporting from the technologists perspective, covering the role of the Board and how to communicate to them in a way they understand. You can register for theContinue reading “How to Report Cyber Risk to the Board”

ISSA Distinguished Fellow

Two weeks ago I was named a Distinguished Fellow of the ISSA. It’s really a great honor for me as I really didn’t think I was qualified. Thanks to everyone who made this possible, including Clarke Cummings for getting me involved in the ISSA to begin with and to Joel Weise for helping with myContinue reading “ISSA Distinguished Fellow”

Cyentia Xtreme

In case you missed it, the Cyentia Institute published the IRIS2020 Xtreme report. I was very happy to have written the conclusions for this report. In it, I speak about how the data in the report can be useful for Board Directors. You can read the full report here. Dark Reading quoted me in theirContinue reading “Cyentia Xtreme”
