Chad Weinman

Hi there! I enjoy wine, climbing rocks, and cyber risk.


Resume / CV

Do you prefer colors or labels? Very high or just high? Can you even give a consistent definition for risk? Does risk management work provide value? There is a better way forward.

Working with dozens of industry-leading organizations each year, building a team of rockstar risk consultants, facilitating 100+ training seminars, and most importantly, real-life, in-the-trenches experience, my view is crafted and defined. I appreciate, and share with listeners, that risk analysis should drive decisions and actions, with the business, in terms they understand. It is time to quantify risk and raise our game.

I bring passion and energy to to my management and coaching/consulting role and I am genuinely excited to work in this industry every day. I am an expert in Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR), a framework for the quantification of risk. I also stay involved in the industry and enjoy meeting the best risk analysts in the FAIR community - who continue to evolve the space.

I am the VP of Professional Services at RiskLens.
Prior to this role, Chad, has worked as an independent consultant focused on risk management and also within the Big 4. Chad is organically Ohio and is alumni of Ohio University.
