Chief Security & Privacy Officer On Demand

Chief Security Officer On-Demand Solutions

Organizations, whether large or small, are obligated to safeguard electronic data such as protected health information (“PHI”), personally identifiable information (“PII”), financial records and intellectual property.  However, many organizations do not need, cannot afford and cannot retain a full-time Chief Security & Privacy Officer to oversee this important obligation.   Consequently, data security and compliance responsibilities are often relegated to employees who have neither the time nor the expertise to effectively implement security policies and controls.  Regrettably, this approach far too often is deemed inadequate only after a data breach has occurred.

The Solution?  An On Demand Chief Security & Privacy Officer

An On Demand Chief Security Officer is the solution for organizations with data security obligations who do not need a full-time Chief Security & Privacy Officer on staff.  Part of a managed services model for data security, the On Demand Chief Security & Privacy Officer solution is a team of certified and highly skilled experts available to provide cybersecurity services to your organization on a part-time basis.  There are several benefits this approach offers, including:

  • Data security peace of mind
  • Lower cost than a full-time resource
  • Readily available resource on demand
  • Access to sophisticated tools and specialized knowledge
  • Ability to work at your office or remotely
  • Informed leadership team
  • Knowledge of the latest threats, laws and guidelines
  • Objective 3rd party advice
  • Compliance with regulatory obligations
  • Customized data security metrics

An On Demand Chief Security & Privacy Officer can provide all of the services of a traditional Chief Security & Privacy Officer, including:

  • Cybersecurity Assessment
  • Penetration Testing
  • Intrusion Detection / Prevention
  • Security Strategy
  • Policy Review and Development
  • Employee Training
  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Data Loss Prevention

Why an On Demand Chief Security & Privacy Officer?

Although everyone in an organization has at least some level of responsibility for data security, it is important to have someone in charge of and responsible for data security at your organization.  This person should steward a secure information culture embedded in the organization’s strategy, with a focus on continuous improvement.  Hiring a full-time employee for this role, however, sometimes does not make sense because full-time Chief Security & Privacy Officers can be expensive and difficult to recruit or retain.  The On Demand Chief Security & Privacy Officer does the same job as a traditional Chief Security & Privacy Officer but with one difference, the On Demand Chief Security & Privacy Officer is a part time resource.  As a result, you can secure your organization for a fraction of the cost.
