Any changes to your ICT environment, such as upgrades, changes to new infrastructure, or adopting cloud-based platforms require oversight by a CISO. The use of a change management process ensures that changes to systems are made in an accountable manner with appropriate consultation and approval.
Developing organisational security policies and ensuring that necessary frameworks are met are core functions of a CISO and an important aspect of a robust security posture. Mature cybersecurity policies and compliance are necessary for risk assessors, cyber insurance readiness, and executive boards.
Assessing gaps in your information security against your organisation's individualised risk profile, putting together a cyber roadmap, presenting recommendations to board executives, and overseeing the process are all valuable services a SD CISO can provide. With SD CISO services, you get access to a team of experts who can cover for one another to provide constant surveillance and support. This helps to provide more security than any one person can offer.
The recent global Ransomware attacks may have CEOs worried but the reality is that most organisations cannot afford a dedicated cyber security team and the associated costs including training, tools and specialist expertise.
