  1. Vision/Strategic Thinker Nick is always focused on the cybersecurity and risk management market, not as it is but as it will be. The RiskLens SaaS platform will succeed as the sophistication of risk managers about cyber risk quantification grows – not by replacing existing products that produce weak and misleading guidance on risk. Motivator Nick’s optimism and obvious love of the product gives the staff a strong sense of mission as RiskLens endeavors to change the longstanding practices of risk management. He is also candid about the challenges of being change agents and encourages a flexible approach as we all learn about the way forward. Nick is also an exemplar of commitment, follow through and accountability (see the next section). Communicator Nick leads a weekly, all-company meeting at which he is transparent about the ups and downs of the business and takes any questions. The weekly meetings are also an example of the RiskLens principle of “we put others first”; most of these sessions are about showcasing the work of staff members. During the year, seeks out every staff member for private discussions to listen carefully to their points of view. Coach and Educator Nick personally leads a series of classes for all new employees, teaching the principles and practice of Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR™), the open-source standard that is operationalized by the RiskLens SaaS platform. Nick does double duty as Founder and President of the FAIR Institute, the non-profit organization dedicated to advancing cyber risk quantification and fresh thinking about risk management and cybersecurity. In that capacity, he has met with members of Congress and White House staff, addressed many professional groups, and organized the annual FAIR Conference that brings together the best thinkers and practitioners in the space, last year attended by 2,000.
