External CISO (Chief Information Security Officer)

Driving Security

When you appoint a CISO (Chief Information Security Officer), you are making a long-term investment in information and IT security. The CISO is responsible for prioritizing this topic in your company and takes on a guiding role, advising and training your employees to create the required level of sensitivity to this topic. You decide: you can either appoint an external expert from TÜV Rheinland, or have us train an employee selected from your company.
