CISOs on Demand
If your organisation doesn’t have one already, a CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) is the senior-level executive in a business who is responsible for ensuring that company data and technologies are protected. CISOs are in growing demand but are generally the preserve of larger organisations. SMEs usually do not have the resources for CISOs but the need for their combination of commercial acumen and technical knowledge is just as great.
CISOs typically manage all matters in the business relating to cyber security, disaster recovery, business continuity, compliance, identity and access management. They respond to incidents, establish appropriate standards and controls, manage security technologies and direct the establishment and implementation of policies and procedures.
The Security Circle recognises that SMEs need CISO expertise but may not have the resources for a full time, permanent role. That’s where CISOS on Demand comes in, providing CISO expertise on a project or part time basis to fulfil all the tasks usually undertaken by a full time Chief Information Security Officer. The Security Circle’s team of CISOs have all worked at executive level in a variety of national and international organisations and bring the expertise needed by SMEs to help create an accountable, security conscious business culture alongside a technically robust and secure security infrastructure.
The key value provided by a CISO is in the role of business leadership. CISOs bring far more to the table than just a specialty in technology, CISOs have a broad and deep perspective on risk and how to enable the business while minimising that risk. As such, CISOs must drive the information technology and security education of the workforce, ensuring collective understanding and action with respect to information security. A good CISO is a great business enabler.
