Outsourcing of the Chief Information Security Officer’s (CISO) duties provides professional support for the management of the information system. Outsourcing of these duties carries both professional and financial benefits. The management benefit is that the task is performed by a highly competent person who has the appropriate expertise and experience in the security management of large-scale information systems. Furthermore, since the outsourced CISO has internationally recognized qualifications (CISM) and is provided continuous professional development, you can be sure that the outsourced CISO’s knowledge and skills in the fields of information security and the security of information systems are always up-to-date and in line with the latest trends. The financial benefits come from the fact that the outsourced CISO has a fixed and predictable cost that is regulated by the terms of the agreement.
