CISO as a Service


What is a CISO as a Service?

Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) as a service represents our outsourced security service. Given the talent squeeze in countries like the UK and Ireland, it is increasingly difficult to source cybersecurity talent. This represents a significant risk for small and medium businesses when viewed in the context of the increased risk from cyber threats. By outsourcing this core function you can enjoy access to the best security talent and latest cyber technology solutions for a monthly subscription.

The goal of most chief information security officers is to maintain and protect information assets. Our offering enables you to achieve the same outcome without the need for a dedicated hire.

In short, our CISO-as-a-service solution offers organisations access to a pool of experts and experienced cybersecurity practitioners who effectively take on the role of the Chief Information Security Officer for your business.

What is our CISO as a Service offering?

You get access to an experienced security officer for several days a month depending on your needs. Our CISO as a service offering lifts the bonnet of your entire business and is designed to support and guide the business in improving overall IT security and compliance. 

In short, our CISO as a service offering produces a cybersecurity management strategy from the C-suite down, creating a comprehensive information security program that leverages forward-looking technology, people and practices. 

How does it work?

After an initial free consultation, we can put forward a recommendation around the number of days you require per month to protect your information assets. It will usually entail a combination of onsite and office work with the consultation consisting of an initial audit, followed by the production of a plan and finally implementation (consisting of ongoing monitoring).

“Your business will draw on our expertise and knowledge and we go on a journey together to ensure that all of the objectives are met within the agreed time frame.”
