Businesses face a risky combination of mounting security threats of increasing subtlety and a widening skills gap required to identify and combat cyber threats. Knowing how to lead the charge in identifying and analyzing threats, creating strategic security plans, and ensuring compliance, requires specialized cyber expertise.
Many businesses, especially small and medium sized businesses, simply don’t have enterprise-scale cyber security expertise on staff. Research ﬁrm ESG indicates the cybersecurity skills shortage is getting consistently worse since 2014. In 2019, 51% of respondents claimed their organization had a problematic shortage of cybersecurity skills.
As cybersecurity continues to become an overarching concern for businesses across all industries, the need for specialized security experts to help manage daily operations has become more important than ever. Recruiting, hiring and maintaining a cybersecurity team or Information Officer (IO) can be a time consuming, expensive and frustrating task. LP3’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Services solves these problems by engaging with you as little or as much as you want to help provide the expertise, benefits and services that a highly certified in house team would provide.
