As part of our Assist services the Chief Information Security Officer-as-a-Service (CISOaaS) provides access to the capabilities required to respond to the threats of today and plan for those of tomorrow.
For some organisations hiring a Chief Information Security Officer is simply cost prohibitive, and for others attracting and retaining the right talent is challenging. Either way, the impact of a cyber-attack or data breach can still be significant.
Often what is required is simply access to the right capabilities at the right time.
Whilst some organisations may have strong technical capabilities but lack board engagement, others may require an increased focus on understanding their threat landscape or on developing technical standards. During the on-boarding process your business strategy, regulatory and threat landscape and existing structures and capabilities are reviewed. This ensures the resulting service is tailored to your specific needs, and delivers relevant business benefit by integrating with your existing capabilities.
Our CISOaaS is delivered through a blend of on-site and remote support, including voice or video calls and email. The service is comprised of a one-off on-boarding process followed by a delivery model designed to meet your specific requirements.
