Why Should You Choose the CISO/DPO Service
There are a few common reasons why companies look at using a CISO/DPO service. Most often companies hire a specialist in the first place because there is a requirement to implement an external standard such as ISO 27001, GDPR or PCI and they need an experienced hand on the tiller. This can often turn into a longer-term relationship following the implementation phase.
Since the turn of the century, security and data protection skills have been in increasingly high demand. It may be that you are struggling to find the right person to fill or back-fill a permanent position and need someone to hold the fort in on an interim basis until the right candidate can be found.
A smaller company’s first contact with the security risk management world is often when they receive a security questionnaire or security audit visit from a larger customer. The customer may be in a regulated business sector, like finance, health or government. This can be daunting when first encountered and there will be a steep learning curve initially. A little guidance from an experience pair of hands can give a peace of mind at a stressful time.
You may simply want someone to oversee your information security or data protection management system on a part-time basis and, if you want to ensure that you only pay for what you actually need, then a CISO/DPO service could be the answer.
