CISO, an enabler for your business
Traditionally seen as a pure cost for a company, the modern Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) has emerged as a key value creation function for a digitized organization and plays an important role on many fronts, such as compliance, market demand, sales efficiency and cyber threats...
CISO as a Service: the solution to organizational challenges
Irrespective of their size, the key challenge for organizations now is to find a CISO with the needed expertise, flexible, and at controlled cost. The solution to these specific needs is a CISO as a Service which offers the following advantages:
- The CISO is externalized and the budget optimized.
- Thanks to the CISO as a service, your organization benefits from his company’s expertise and resources.
