Information Security Officer (ISB) / Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)

What are the tasks of an IT security officer or information security officer (ISB) and why do you need this person?

An information security officer is the central point of contact and coordination for IT security and information security in the company. The tasks range from the creation of various security guidelines to the performance of audits and risk analyses,

review of security incidents and training of employees to the establishment and operation of an information security management system (ISMS). In the process there is cooperation with management, IT manager and the data protection officer.

Why should you hire an external Information Security Officer (ISB)? 

Often, the workload involved in operating an ISMS cannot be performed by a single employee, especially if employees are to perform the task in addition to their main job. As an information security officer, there may even be a conflict of interest if the responsible person is an IT manager, managing director, or administrator. Thus, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises, hiring an external information security officer is a cost-effective alternative compared to providing an internal one. To avoid problems, you can hire abat as an external information security officer. You are also welcomed to arrange a consulting contingent with us if you would like to draw on our broad range of knowledge and experience as an internal information security officer and benefit from our efficient methods.
