General - v CISO

Having a Cyber Security Subject Matter Expert as a full-time employee could prove to be prohibitively expensive, especially in a smaller business where they may not be fully utilised. CND offers a service for an on-demand ‘virtual’ Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO), where the level of engagement is tailored to your business needs and to your budget.  

Your vCISO can undertake a variety of activities, as determined by a preliminary scoping of the role - from responding to your questions and security issues to conducting onsite visits, attending meetings and delivering briefings.

Similar to our vCISO service and in response to the CAA Cyber security oversight process for aviation - CAP1753 we offer the virtual Cyber Security Responsible Manager (vCRSM).

Our vCSRM will work for the airport's Accountable Manager to assist in the preparation for the achievement of their cyber security compliance when audited, Our vCSRM will scope the critical systems as per CAP1849 and ensure that the fourteen principles which are spread across the four broad objectives are being met as defined within CAP1850.
