Interim CISO: Experienced Leadership During Periods of Transition

If you’ve got board responsibility for cyber security, typically a CIO or CFO, and you’ve decided you need a CISO, you might be interested in how Savanti are helping clients of all shapes and sizes embed security leadership into their organisations.  We can support you by providing highly skilled and experienced consultants to both act as an interim CISO while you recruit your permanent; and advise your new-in-post CISO to ensure that your security objectives are met during periods of transition.

Many organisations find themselves in the position of having to recruit a CISO. However, it can take up to 12 months to recruit and transition a CISO into a full time permanent role, leaving a gap in an organisations ability to continue to manage security from a strategic and operational basis.  To reduce this impact many organisations hire an interim CISO as a stop gap measure between permanent hires.  An interim CISO can be added to the organisation within days, enabling you to continue to manage security risks, security incidents and drive your existing security strategy and improvement program forward.

Savanti have a proven track record in delivering interim CISO services. We provide experienced former CISO’s who able to operate at a senior level and get up to speed quickly. Their extensive security expertise will keep your security function operating, drive organisational change to achieve strategic objectives and support you in recruiting a permanent CISO.

This model is true of other senior security leadership positions, such as Head of Information Security Governance or Director of Security Architecture. As with the role of CISO, Savanti have demonstrable experience providing other interim services to meet our clients’ requirements.
