Interim Full-time / Part-time CISO Services:
Misrepresentation in an audit or regulatory assessment can severely impact your ability to run your company effectively. Providing the right level of detail to an examiner ensures a successful review.
At the core of a successful risk management function is the Information Security Program. It is critical to identify what your business risks are, and how technology can help you manage those risks in a cost effective manner. Our professionals can help design or enhance your current program based on our years of experience in the Financial Services industry.
Your organization is required to be governed by a set of security policies and procedures for all employees to follow. Most companies have defined a set of policies that are too generic or not robust to cover all aspects of security.
Having an Information Security policy is simply not enough to manage the risk of an employee compromising sensitive data or an incident occurrence. The policy must include specific requirements and responsibilities. KLC has been developing robust security standards and guidelines for over 10 years, and we can help you at minimal cost.
A lack of employee awareness is one of the largest risks and organization can face. KLC has implemented robust security awareness training programs that are easy to understand yet effective. Ongoing awareness training with certification is the most effective way to ensure the continued education of your employees.
Federal and State privacy requirements apply to all companies in the United States. KLC has worked directly with the Federal Reserve, OCC, OTS, and State regulators that govern the largest financial institutions in the world. We have supported firms through regulatory examinations and assessments with a proven track record of success.
Responding to and containing incidents once they occur should be the top priority. However, this must include escalation procedures, containment options, active testing, and post incident review and impact. KLC has been helping companies create, plan, and actively manage their Incident Management program for years.
The best way to manage an incident is to never have one. Unfortunately, this is not always a realistic scenario and most companies experience an incident at some point. Implementing the right tools to prevent incidents is the best deterrent, and we’ve helped companies assess their risk and implement the best tools to reduce the threat of repetition or occurrence.
KLC can design and implement a complete disaster recovery strategy and plan that fits your organization. This includes identifying critical systems and ensuring they are available for the continuation of business operations.
