Close the gaps in your cybersecurity leadership
Do you have gaps in your cybersecurity leadership? Need help recruiting a security leader who understands both the technology and business impacts of cybersecurity risks and strategy?
As the threat landscape increases, the chief information security officer (CISO) plays a vital role in establishing and maintaining your organization’s strategy and program for protecting critical assets. But even if you have a CISO in place, they are often overwhelmed and require the support of a team of specialists to manage the many controls, regulations, and technologies that pepper the cybersecurity landscape.
This scenario can result in a non-existent or immature cybersecurity program with insufficient policies, lack of governance, and a limited cybersecurity framework (the basis for determining “where the enterprise is at”) – all of which can put your organization at risk.
Compliance Isn’t Enough
For many a focus on compliance is often regarded as sufficient. But compliance efforts are limited in scope and even if you pass a compliance test, you may not be as secure as you want to be.
How We Can Help
Cybersecurity can’t be ignored. Yet good cybersecurity skills are hard to come by. With more openings than qualified candidates, finding a judicious way to get started is harder than you think.
Our CISO Advisory services provide your organization with access to a team of skilled security professionals and dedicated security advisor. We can assist CISOs with:
- Cybersecurity strategy development.
- Cybersecurity program development.

Many boards do not have access to independent IT advice. This is a governance risk as poor IT performance can risk the company’s connections to their customer and supplier communities, overspend critical budgets and even adversely affect commitments to the market. There are many examples of projects not delivered on time and budget, and they affect the ability of the company to pay their employees, to gain synergies from their many businesses, to deliver audit and risk committee compliance, or at a basic level communicate with the investment community accurately.
