What are the tasks of an IT security officer or Information Security Officer (ISB) and why do you need him?
An information security officer is the central point of contact and coordination for IT security and information security in the company. His tasks range from the creation of various security guidelines to the implementation of audits and risk analyzes, review of security incidents and training of employees to the establishment and operation of an information security management system (ISMS). He always works with the management, the IT manager and the data protection officer.
Why should you engage an external information security officer (ISB)?
Often, the work involved in operating an ISMS cannot be performed by a single employee. Especially if this employee is to perform the task alongside his main job. As an information security officer, there may even be a conflict of interest - provided that the person responsible is an IT manager, managing director or administrator. For example, especially for small and medium-sized companies, hiring an external information security officer is a cost-effective alternative to providing an internal one.
