Frequently Asked Questions
There is no such thing as truly secure and it is a never-ending race to keep up with new risks and threats.
However, good security practice applies a risk-based approach to identifying risk and addressing it according to priorities. It is a continuous, ongoing process but having a coordinated program with open and transparent governance is the best way to keep risk to an acceptable level.
The success of CISOaaS is measured by the effectiveness of this program in reducing risk.
Unfortunately, the answer to this question has to be no, but the service will work at two levels to substantially reduce the likelihood and impact of incidents.
First, it will focus on reducing the ‘attack surface’ by implementing a range of technical, social and procedural measures.
Second, it will work on enabling visibility into your infrastructure, applications and data so that any incident is detected and responded to so as to minimise the impact on your business (and reduce the cost of response).
There is an extensive range of threats, many of which require specialist expertise to address.
One of the advantages of CISOaaS is that Excite Cyber can apply specialist resources where needed for components of work and you do not need to worry about finding the resource, contracting them and getting them up to speed.
The scope of what is needed will be determined during the engagement process and reviewed on an ongoing basis so you have a clear forecast of committed and planned costs to achieve the agreed outcomes.
