The severity and increasing frequency of cyber attack are now on the agenda of the boardroom of every major global organisation. The appointment of a Chief Information Security Officer is essential to ensure the alignment of security measures with enterprise and business objectives. It is also essential to ensuring all information assets are fully protected and that the organisation meets its legal and regulatory cyber security obligations.
Existing board-level directors rarely possess the specialist skills to combat today’s highly skilled and persistent cyber criminals. Experienced CISO’s are a scarce commodity and the cost of recruitment and subsequent salary can be very high.
The Wizard Cyber VIRTUAL CISO service has been designed to provide a dedicated outsourced board-level resource who can ‘virtually sit inside a company’ and manage its security strategy, budget, review of risks and regulatory programmes.
