If you need the expertise of an experienced and strategic information security professional for a specific set of tasks, a specific timeframe or on an ongoing retained but not necessarily full-time basis, then Ward Solution's CISO as a service may just suit your needs.
We also supply on an ‘as a service’ basis a Data Protection Officer to help you fulfil if required the role of DPO in your organisation. A nominated DPO is required by public bodies and organisations whose core activities involve the processing of personal data.
Many organisations cannot afford to retain or simply do not need on a full-time basis the strategic risk management and Information Security skills of a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).
Many organisations want a resource with experience derived from working in numerous sectors with different clients, while other organisations have more work on their strategic Information Security programmes than their own CISO can handle.
As for a DPO, many organisations may not have the expertise in-house to fulfil this role, so we offer a resource as a service to those organisations, allowing them to fulfil their obligations cost-effectively.
Ward Solutions CISO as a service provides your organisation with the retained services of a highly experienced and accredited senior consultant offering you a very tailored and flexible strategic service.
The service may either be a full CISO service, i.e. our resource is effectively your organisation's CISO or an augmentation resource, i.e. our resource is augmenting your CISO resource through the provision of expertise or by delivering some work programmes.
A DPO’s task is to inform and advise employees of their obligations pursuant to the GDPR Regulation. They will monitor all compliance procedures in an organisation and also is the main point of contact on issues related to the processing of personal data.
Your organisation gains the experience and expertise of our strategic Information Security consultants working to help protect your organisation’s information assets and a DPO to look after all of your GDPR requirements.
Our service is tailored completely to your requirements in terms of services delivered, time and commercial models.
Our tailor-made services will also help with flexible, cost-effective budget models for your business.
You get continuity of service utilising the same resource or resources.
You get strategic resources, expertise and input cost-effectively and efficiently.
Our CISO as a service and DPO as a service can be drawn upon and deliver to your organisation additional technical resources, knowledge and services that you may require - such as in incident response or technical implementation.
CISO - You can augment your existing strategic information security resources with another strategic resource to either bring areas of expertise not within your team or to accelerate work packages.
DPO -Based on where you are in your compliance journey, the DPO will provide recommendations for your business to achieve and maintain compliance. The opinion of the DPO must always be given due weight. The DPO must be promptly consulted once a data breach or another incident has occurred.
We first assess the current state of your business process, compliance and industry framework and design a security strategy program to strengthen your organisation’s security posture.
