On Demand C-Level Cyber Security Experience and Expertise

Outsourcing your Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) role is a cost effective and efficient alternative to finding, recruiting, and retaining experienced c-level security personnel.

Whether you're looking for a long term solution as a part of your managed security services, or a security specialist to oversee digital transformation or key projects, a virtual CISO gives you instant access to a team of experienced, dedicated experts to improve your organisation's information and cyber security.

The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is a key senior-level executive whose essential function is to protect ICT assets, reduce security risks, and ensure there is a fit between enterprise vision and security processes. As a source of security expertise, a CISO identifies gaps in current business processes, developing and implementing, through effective change management controls, new processes that increase the security posture of an organisation.


Valuable tasks that a CISO may provide include:

Security Change Management

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.

Frameworks and Policy

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.

Risk Assessments and Compliance

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 CISO can provide.
