Chief information security officers (CISOs) are continually challenged to manage risk and improve organizational resiliency. Success can be achieved by understanding broader corporate initiatives and business drivers, then successfully developing and aligning the cybersecurity program to mirror those initiatives. A good program requires alignment, governance, strategy and a road map for communicating what can be accomplished along a timeline.
CISOs are often challenged to blend their technical knowledge with the executive management skills necessary for success with expanded responsibility.
Our executive advisory consultants help CISOs and chief information officers (CIOs) develop and grow their cyber programs in alignment with the broader business, ultimately improving chances for success. We help executives achieve a confident balance of business and technical background and on-the-job experience. We combine deep understanding of risk management, governance and information security controls with experienced human capital management, strategic program development and financial knowledge, building the foundation for a successful, risk-based information security program.

Risk management programs, with business-aligned key performance metrics, demonstrate a return on investment that all executives can get behind. When the chief information security officer of an organization successfully makes a case for the return on investment of a risk management program, the entire organization benefits.
Risk is a constant. Preparing for disruptions is difficult, but a business continuity plan can help an organization stay afloat during and after an event.
