When a cyberattack takes hold, it’s enough to ruin a company’s reputation for a long while. This causes trust in the company to plummet in turn. Thankfully, hiring a chief information security officer can put your company one step ahead in the endless quest for cybersecurity.

In this piece, Tim Cook, partner and cyber practice lead at Acertitude and one of the world’s foremost experts on CISOs, breaks down everything you need to know getting the right leaders in the right seats to bolster your cybersecurity efforts.

“Different organizations require different abilities in their CISOs,” Tim says. “Perhaps you’re a smaller business that just needs a level-one CISO to monitor the cyber aspects of IT and infrastructure. Other organizations (such as large financial institutions) have more complex cyber needs, and they’ll likely require a level-five CISO.”

To maximize safety and minimize risk, explore Tim’s proprietary CISO and Chief Information Risk Officer model.
