The world has become more reliant on technology thanks to the internet and digital devices. With organizations left vulnerable by the influx of cyber-attacks, many struggle to protect their data and create an updated strategic cybersecurity plan. As such, the role of an Executive Security Officer (ESO) has become increasingly critical in the workplace. Given the difficulties involved in finding the right person for the position, RZP offers Centurion ESO services designed to improve and oversee your organization’s information security practices.
Part of the purpose of an organization’s Executive Security Officer is to align security efforts with enterprise initiatives and company goals. This must be accomplished in a manner that prioritizes the protection of data, assets, and technology. Other important purposes include oversight and management of security program processes and technology, facilitating education and awareness throughout the organization and effectively communicating with other executive leadership and the Board.
RZP Centurion ESO services are designed to help fill the gap where no official cybersecurity leadership position exists and are specific to individual client needs. As your ESO, RZP will act as part of your management team to identify and remediate deficiencies and provide ongoing management of your information security program (ISP).
This is accomplished through five phases:
1. Establish baseline cybersecurity and regulatory risk exposure
2. Draft governance documentation and gain stakeholder consensus
3. Ensure staff is trained
4. Revise risk exposure and audit controls
5. Annual report to Board and mapping into following year
With a competitive environment and shortage for cybersecurity leadership, compensation for a full time, inhouse Chief Information Security Officer can easily rise into the low six figures. Many organizations simply do not have the financial resources to absorb this cost. This is where the true benefit of Centurion ESO services is realized. For a fraction of the cost of a full-time cybersecurity leader, the RZP team becomes your ESO with a project lead supported by our expert cybersecurity analysts. Our team will always be on your side, even as the cyber landscape changes.
