The class exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely recommend...

George Shido, Sr Security Consultant, Optiv

Open FAIR™ Foundations was both interactive and informative. Being entirely new to FAIR, I liked the fact that class was spread out across several days (making the material more digestible) and instructors were always available for questions.  The occasional real-life examples and study group sessions were also helpful in gaining a better understanding.  The class exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the FAIR methodology.
