Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)



Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) roles have become one of the most influential and important cyber security positions within any organisation. These tough but rewarding roles involve developing and implementing robust policy measures and programmes to ensure your company is completely protected and prepared for any digital eventuality. As a Specialist, you will manage the in-depth security of systems and processes to detect potential issues as early as possible. You’ll remove and deal with hardware and software problems before they become critical issues- saving your business immeasurable amounts of time and money (and earning plenty of plaudits, brownie points and cups of tea in the process!).

CISOs do not have a blanket definition in terms of responsibilities, but they are usually expected to spearhead the development of IT security experts, and develop corporate policies for data, security and protection. They may also have to audit systems for risk, predict threat landscapes and monitor internal infrastructure to establish flaws and threats within the infrastructure. They will also play a role in helping with information security recruitment alongside HR staff.
Furthermore, those in Chief Information Security Officer roles will need to ensure that their spending remains within established budgets and allocated appropriately to ensure all necessary measures are maintained for cyber security, including training and recruitment. They will be expected to ensure all staff are appropriately trained and organise or implement courses to raise user awareness and security compliance.
