Cyber Security Advisory as a Service (virtual CISO)

Ensuring appropriate resources are applied to internal cybersecurity needs can be one of the most challenging aspects, especially in the current climate of skills shortages.

Organisations today operate in an increasingly complex cyber security threat environment combined with a complex array of current and emerging regulatory obligations and customer expectations for cyber security controls and capabilities. 

Ensuring appropriate resources are applied to internal cyber security needs can be one of the most challenging aspects, especially in the current climate of skills shortages and the broad level of capabilities required, from deep technical skills to business level risk management and compliance. 

Also, many businesses cannot justify the cost of carrying full-time resources across the entire spectrum of cyber security, especially in meeting the demands of digital transformation and change which often results in spikes of demand for cyber security resourcing.

This is where Business Aspect can help, offering a range of services and an agile delivery model to help organisations develop their cyber security capabilities. A key service and delivery model is the provision of Cyber Security Advisory as a Service, also known as a virtual CISO (Chief Information Security Officer). This service provides the capabilities and support of a CISO function and is designed to help organisations improve their cyber security defences across the IT and business landscape.

Access to an extensive knowledge base of artefacts and outcomes gained over 17 years of cyber security consulting delivery. This enables us to effectively speed up the delivery of outcomes to our clients. We also offer mentoring and knowledge sharing, as our knowledgeable cyber security practitioners seek to impart their knowledge to our clients and the cyber security community.

  • Ability to scale up and down with project and change needs.

A key benefit is that you can scale the services to your emerging demands, such as increased project and digital transformation needs. 

  • Represent your business in audit and customer cyber security communications. 

We often provide the interface between your external auditors and customers seeking information on your current cyber security environment and are well-versed in ensuring a comprehensive understanding of these requests and an appropriate response.
