What is a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)?

A Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is an individual whose sole purpose is to assess, monitor and respond to the cyber threats your organisation might face. They are agile, effective and embedded within your organisation to offer thorough risk management and information assurances by staying abreast of changing cyber activities on your behalf.

A CISO can be a useful tool to steer and guide your corporate regulatory, governance and security compliance in-line with the ever-increasing cyber threats your organisation may face.

Who Needs a CISO?

A CISO is typically a senior-level executive within a growing organisation. They are responsible for establishing and maintaining a long-term strategy to ensure your information, assets and technologies are kept safe.

The time is right to bring a CISO into your business when you are:

R

Holding a lot of customer data or dealing with large amounts of sensitive data.

R

Worried about the threat of cyber crime, such as phishing schemes and malware.

R

Beginning to operate from multiple sites from many different devices.

R

Employing team with little to no cyber security training.

R

Unable to stay on-top of changes in the cyber security landscape.

The Challenge

Employing a full time CISO is often a luxury for businesses and can push the limits of a small organisation’s budget. As a result, businesses often settle for half measures and leave themselves open to cyber security threats, both internal and external, without having anyone to lean on for advice or assistance.

Others choose to go down the route of consultancy, but this can be prohibitively expensive and lacking in personalisation to your business and its niche sector.

We will personally assign you a dedicated CISO who will maintain regular contact with your senior leadership and stay abreast of cyber security trends that may affect your organisation and its operational focus.

Without the extraordinarily generous support from 4Secure the scheme would not have succeeded in delivering the scale of impact to Herefordshire schools and children that we were able to, at the time when it was critical to do so.

From the outset 4Secure became a critical partner and were always willing to go the extra mile to ensure we had everything we needed – and more! Their professionalism, industry-leading capability and can-do attitude was invaluable and made a huge difference to over 300 children in 45 schools across Herefordshire.

We are very grateful to have had the privilege of their support and partnership on this scheme. They should be proud of what they have done to make a difference in Herefordshire.
