Security is a very dynamic concern, it’s never the same for anyone and varies depending on the size of the organization, the vertical or the industry that you are in. Thus requiring a custom approach to be taken by each organization. A Chief Security Officer (CISO) therefore comes in as an accountable, c-level counterpart to CIOs,and other C-level executives with high trust responsibility. A CISO comes in with a focussed goal to drive a security program that has an eye towards governance, risk management, change management, and operations. The role involves dedicated efforts towards each of the steps in the entire Lifecycle of Security Management; be it
Information Security is no longer restricted to the IT department today, but it is a priority with public ramifications. Where major enterprises typically face the volume of strategic security challenges to justify a full-time CISO, smaller companies often find themselves in need, but not 100% of the time. Mid-size firms are facing a completely different conundrum; while being the eye of the cyber-crime whirlwind where cyber criminals want to make the best use of their unorganized manner of dealing with Enterprise Security; theyare still reluctant to invest in the expense of a full-time CISO, on a ‘just-in-case’ basis. In such scenarios Security Managers and the operational IT teams are the ones owning the security and compliance strategy. While it can be an interim arrangement that might/might not work, the skill set required is surely no match to a CISO.
So, in such a case what should an Enterprise do who surely needs a CISO but at a decreased Cost and increased accountability?
