CISO-as-a-Service

How We Serve

CISO-as-a-Service is a collection of core security assessments customized to today’s threat landscape or tailored to specific business needs and targeted cyber program development. Each service is designed to provide the customer with a strategic roadmap to address any identified gaps in people, process, or technology. The cyber programs are focused consulting engagements designed for both the seasoned CISO or organizations where security is one of many hats worn by leadership. These are focused consulting engagements that are designed with targeted outcomes. These areas are specifically targeted, as they can be under-served in smaller security organizations but are critical to achieving higher maturity.

The offerings in CISO-as-a-Service are designed to address the gaps which are often identified through the assessment and risk management process. The services are targeted to address a specific need or can be used in sequence. For example, running a Scenario Planning and Attack Readiness Tabletop Exercise after the Ransomware Assessment will provide valuable insight into a company’s ability to address a crisis.

Level5Cyber is focused on raising the cyber capabilities for our customers through value-driven, fixed-outcome services.

Assessments

Our Assessment services help organizations understand their threat landscape, critical assets, and protection profile necessary to meet their business needs.  They identify an organization’s current cyber maturity and provide a roadmap to achieve a business-driven protection profile.

This is a customized maturity assessment specific to areas, including technology and processes, which are critical to detecting and preventing data loss. LeveL5Cyber’s team can incorporate an interview and tool-based assessment to provide a comprehensive security risk posture.

The LeveL5Cyber NIST CSF Assessment takes the popular and foundational NIST CyberSecurity Framework (CSF) controls, that were designed to bridge the gap between business and technical stakeholders, and tailors them to the specific needs of an organization.  The assessment is a risk-based approach to help our clients understand their current cyber posture. In terms of adhering to the NIST CSF requirements, our assessment identifies gaps in compliance and provides mitigation recommendations to assist our clients with focusing on the appropriate areas for improvements.

Program Development

LeveL5Cyber’s CISO-as-a-Service brings together information security strategy and practices designed to manage risks and elevate the maturity of the information security organization.

Between changing business needs, evolving threats and a transforming regulatory landscape, developing or modifying organizational structure is often challenging.  Conversely, there are times when business changes, such as mergers and consolidations, drive organizational change. LeveL5Cyber will work with security leadership to help define the optimal organizational model to assist in meeting business goals.

This is a consulting engagement designed to assist our customer with solution selection.  LeveL5Cyber can develop a weighted requirements matrix through either the customer’s RFP or by working with stakeholders to develop requirements.  Once the matrix is developed, LeveL5Cyber can review responses to the RFP to update the matrix or participate in vendor interviews to document how vendors meet requirements. LeveL5Cyber may also participate in vendor workshops and meetings to assist the customer architecture and engineering aspects of the project.

This is a consulting engagement focused on developing the people, process and potentially technology to support an end-user education capability.  The engagement will review the customer’s current policies, such as Acceptable Use, learning management capabilities, company culture, monitoring capabilities, testing (such as Phishing and compliance), and other relevant areas associated with developing a User Education Program.

Having a solid strategic plan is key to selling the “InfoSec” value within a company. Often, a CISO will begin with an assessment of the current capabilities and align with the business needs and direction. LeveL5Cyber’s CISO team will work with the customer to develop a right-sized, business-oriented security strategy. Our years of cyber experience across multiple verticals provides LeveL5Cyber with a unique, vendor agnostic perspective on real life solutions.

This is a consulting engagement focused on developing the people, process and technology to support an incident response and the threat intelligence capability to meet the customer’s business needs and regulatory requirements.

Policy management may not be top priority for most CISOs unless it is driven by an audit or regulatory requirements. This service is designed to help the customer review or create right-sized, business appropriate security policies, standards and detailed configuration guidelines using industry standard practices. 

Tabletop Exercises (TTX) are designed to assess CyberSecurity Incident Response Plans (CSIRP), IT Policies, and culture, in the event of a cyber incident or crisis. The LeveL5Cyber Scenario Planning and Attack Readiness service provides the traditional discussion-based cyber event exercise, customized based on Risk Assessment, Cyber Maturity Assessment, or a company’s Risk Register.  The LeveL5Cyber TTX can support multiple levels within an organization from Executive Leadership to technology teams like IT, OT, Security, and the supply chain.

Security Ideation & Baseline

Security Ideation is meant to be a sounding board for CISO’s. These are very short engagements, ranging from a one to five hours, which a CISO can use to gather feedback on an initiative or get an industry perspective on an issue.
