CISO-as-a-Service

A highly experienced, independent and strategic CISO to create or enhance your Cyber Security strategy, policies, processes and controls. Operating as an extension of your business and bridging the gap between executive leadership and functional heads, a highly sought after CISO will deliver Cyber maturity and Cyber preparedness ensuring a comprehensive Cyber defence.

Contemporary

Cyber Mastery

Cyber Security is a specialist field, requiring thorough knowledge of contemporary Cyber defence best practise, awareness of the latest security technologies and a strong understanding of the current threat landscape. Cyber Security is currently experiencing its highest public focus thanks to increasingly frequent and complex Cyber threats, high-profile data breaches that affect individual consumers, the subsequent corporate fines issued due to more stringent regulation and enforcement powers, and the reputational damage that ensues. Cyber Security is now simply too important to ignore.

Recruiting and retaining experienced security leaders at a time of global short supply is no easy task. Equally, not all organisations require full time Cyber leadership to deliver comprehensive and successful Cyber strategies for their business. Our CISO-as- service provides all the advantages and peace of mind of an in-house, full time Chief Information Security Officer without the full investment and recruitment headache. Littlefish’s CISO-as-a-Service (CISOaaS) provides the benefits of an in-house CISO without the associated fixed overheads, and without the challenge of attracting and retaining a much sought after senior, full-time employee.

Littlefish will provide a vastly experienced security professional who will carry out a detailed security assessment of your organisation. They will highlight areas of weakness and concern, before providing board-level understanding with full investment justification for any required investment to mitigate your organisation’s key Cyber Security risks. By acting as an extension of your in-house resources and gaining an intimate understanding of your business needs, the CISO will provide ongoing remediation support, security advice and guidance as and when you need it.

CISO-as-a-Service will provide your organisation with:

Expert Guidance

Ongoing support, advice and guidance from an experienced cyber security professional who understands your organisation and its business processes.

Cost Efficiencies

The advantages and peace of mind of an in-house, full time CISO at a fraction of the cost and without the recruitment challenges and fixed overheads.

Cyber Protection

Unmatched defence against attacks and rapid technical and organisational response to breaches, resulting in reduced business impact.

Why Consider a CISO-as-a-Service?

According to the World Economic Forum most boardrooms now see Cyber threat and risk of attack as their “biggest business risk” and IT Security as their highest priority. Simultaneously IT security skills are in high demand, but there is a global shortage! ISC2 suggest 4m vacancies remain globally. In Europe alone the shortage has grown by more than 100%, with latest figures suggesting an increase from 142,000 to over 300,000 unfilled vacancies.

These staff skills shortages, and unfilled vacancies leave organisations with a variance of risk, that needs to be mitigated, in some cases, urgently.

The challenge isn’t just finding technical skills, it is much harder to find people who are both knowledgeable in contemporary Cyber Security and all that entails, as well as having strong business knowledge.

Retention of FTE Cyber Security specialist resource is, as you can imagine, significantly challenging with such high demand evident. Our CISO solution removes completely the headache with providing this resource and can be utilised to provide short, medium or long term solutions to your Cyber needs.
