What is an Virtual CISO?
A CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) is a senior-level executive within the business who is responsible for establishing and maintaining the enterprise vision, strategy, and programme to ensure information assets and technologies are adequately protected. They are the go to person to ensure your business keeps its information safe from cyber attacks.
The discussion of cyber security is increasingly discussed in board room meetings due to the increasing frequency, severity and impact of cyber attacks upon UK businesses. It has been estimated that cyber attacks have cost British industry £34bn per year (Source: CEBR/Veracode 2015).
The board rarely possesses the specialist skills which are needed to combat today’s cyber criminals and therefore have to rely upon external collaboration. The virtual CISO service which is offered by TeraByte has been designed to fill that skill gap. A remote virtual CISO service means that you will receive a board-level resource that can sit within your business virtually. This allows you to manage your security strategy, budget, review of risks and regulatory programmes.
