The role of the CISO has never been so important for aligning security and business objectives, ensuring compliance to multiple, at times overlapping, standards and protection of data and technology. But despite these clear requirements, many organisations continue to work without one.
That is where a Company85 Virtual CISO (vCISO) comes in: a subscription-based, experienced security professional who works according to your expected and flexible demands. It offers substantial savings against hiring a permanent CISO and significant advantages in skill and experience against appointing the responsibility in-house. From defining IS strategy to delivering projects and managing services, a vCISO is everything you need to build security into the heart of your organisation.
Security and Threat Assessment
All organisations, regardless of sector or size, need to understand two things: the maturity of their internal security capability and the reality of external threats. A Security & Threat Assessment is designed around your specific needs and uses Company85’s recognised and repeatable process to provide you with a thorough assessment of the current state of your information security.
Using selected security tools and with alignment to multiple compliance frameworks “out of the box”, the security assessment assesses your organisation’s current cyber security posture and operational security capabilities. It can provide you with a full review of your information security at each stage: identify, protect, detect, respond and recover. Company85 will combine the prioritised view of live and relevant threats with this in-depth review of security posture to provide you with a clear set of recommendations.
Confidential Board Briefing
Information security is no longer to sole preserve of IT teams: everyone in your organisation, especially the board, want to understand its implications on the wider business. A Company85 Confidential Board Briefing can help: we act as an advocate for the board to cut through the well-intentioned but complicated reporting that IS teams are often reduced to.
The briefing can translate the copious metrics generated by your security tools into something understandable and actionable, while simultaneously educating the board on what questions to ask their teams in future to get the same result. And, for those who do not have regular reporting or specific teams in place, it can frame the organisation in the wider security context and provide pragmatic recommendations for the future.
Securing the Supply Chain.
How can we move towards a symbiotic relationship with our third parties?
Not all third parties are created equal: in the wake of high profile breaches, organisations are assessing the security of their supply chain more rigourously than ever.
ClubCISO (powered by Company85) gives a voice to European CISOs on the topics that matter most: we hosted a dinner debate to understand why 62% of CISOs rank their confidence in their third party security policies at 50% or less.
