A Chief Information Security Officer (“CISO”) is crucial in any company. This executive-level role identifies requirements, shapes policy, and leads efforts to protect the company’s cyber and technical assets while not losing sight of the company’s culture. A CISO must be able to communicate at the Board level to articulate technical and often complex cybersecurity threats and controls.
The CISO role is often not easy to fill or fund, and based on the size and complexity of your organization, may not require a full-time employee. SQ Risk offers the Fractional CISO Service (i.e., “Virtual CISO”). This service is customized to address the CISO responsibilities and functions of the customer without the overhead of an executive-level, highly compensated employee. The CISO service may include (but is not limited to):
• Design and Manage the Information Security Program
• Technical Risk Assessments
• Identification and Validation
• Engage Security Vendors to meet Cybersecurity goals
• A Key Stakeholder in other Risk Management Programs or Committees
SQ Risk Fractional CISO will partner with you to develop and manage the Information Security Program that fits your needs while meeting industry standards and regulations.
