Interim Security Officer Program

Executive security roles such as “CISO – CSO – DATA PROTECTION OFFICER“ are critical to the successful delivery of any security and risk management program. In many cases it is a regulatory and/or legal requirement to appoint such appropriate such resources.

However, some organisations may not be ready or be able to justify the cost of a fulltime role. In some cases, they simply have not identified an appropriate candidate.

Neglecting this role or appointing under qualified resources is more likely to result in the introduction of even greater risk to your business through delay, inexperience and non-compliance issues.
