For many organisations, hiring a dedicated CISO is a big step toward building a comprehensive information security programme.
However, as each organisation is unique, the roles and responsibilities of a CISO can also vary from company to company. Many organisations are not ready to hire a full-time CISO or have not fully defined what a successful CISO’s responsibilities look like within their organisation. These organisations still need the strategic guidance and knowledge a traditional CISO brings to the overall security strategy.
Secureworks Advisory CISO Service was designed to take an alternative approach to traditional staff augmentation or CISO-in-a-box. Instead, the service focuses on delivering the strategic components that a CISO would normally deliver, but from a collective pool of former CISOs that utilise Secureworks knowledge sharing and the latest threat intelligence. This allows the client to consume the consulting service when needed based on gaps in the following areas:
- Security strategy development
- Intelligence integration
- Industry expertise
- Board and Executive briefings
- On-site presentations and strategy sessions
