Every organization should enable cyber security to protect their digital assets – this has become a critical necessity in view of the increasing risks and threats to IT infrastructure. Every hardware or software OEM issues updates and patches meant to address security bugs that are reported to them and this by itself is an indication of the fragile life we are living.
With my team, I can be your Virtual CISO and assist you in setting up the Information Security infrastructure in your organization, based on the needs of your business and risks / threats it may face.
Me and my team will ensure that all required security Policies and Procedures are documented and then enabled or implemented in the internal processes. If you are seeking to be certified to ISO27001 (information security), PCI-DSS (credit card / payment security), ISO27017 (cloud security) or any other standard / framework, we can provide the necessary consulting and advisory service followed by the strategy, plan and operational support.
In short, me and my team, will undertake to implement and manage the Information Security controls and ensure that your digital assets are protected.
The following is a short list of the work you can expect as part of the CISO service (however the work may not be limited to the same and will fully cover all requirements for security enablement):
- Assessment of your current security posture to create the organization strategy and plan;
- Implement security controls as per plan and strategy;
- Identify risks / threats that may affect your organization and work with your team to mitigate;
- Develop Information Security Policies and Procedures;
- Conduct security awareness and training;
- Risk framework and assessment;
- Asset register and risk-based inventory;
- Update internal practices for HR, Projects, Legal Agreements etc;
- Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery;
- Vendor / 3rd Party Risk Management and Assessment;
- Internal Audit and Readiness Audit;
- Certification to ISO and other standards and frameworks.
- All tasks and activities as required for enabling effective security practices.
The service is provided under my supervision with one or more security specialists being posted onsite in your office. It is my responsibility to manage the security specialists and that the controls are well designed as well as implemented effectively.
Last year, a report from the Ponemon Institute – ‘The Evolving Role of CISOs and Their Importance to the Business’ opined that the CISO’s role is becoming more critical in today’s world of omnipresent cybersecurity threats, especially when it comes to managing enterprise risk, deploying security analytics and protecting digital assets.
