How to ensure a global, coherent, effective, and integrated approach to security in my company?

The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) must identify and evaluate the cyber risks, define the objectives and priorities regarding their treatment, monitor the implementation of protective measures, while overseeing and assessing the effectiveness of the cyber strategy.

The CISO must as well make sure the communication is effective to theirmanagement, to the IT organization with whom he must constantly synchronize, and to the company’s employees that must be sensibilized and trained. He must also make sure regulators and authorities are aware that the company is compliant with applicable cybersecurity standards.

This wide range of responsibilities requires some abilities regarding cybersecurity’s laws, standards,  regulations, technical securing, as well as project management and communication.

At Formind, we can help you address these challenges with our “Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC)” team of experts (some of them being former CISOs). Our consultants can offer a fresh, independent, and experimented look through an adaptive approach emphasizing continuous improvement and based on the best risks-benefits ratio.
