The CISO Group Launches CISO on Demand Service Bringing Experience, Predictability and Affordability to Dynamic Security Needs

Industry Veterans Launch New Company Bringing a New Highly Flexible Model for Security, Compliance and Risk Management

Boca Raton, FL, January 17, 2010 --( The CISO Group, LLC today announced it is launching operations and offering its CISO On DemandTM security, compliance and risk management solution. Delivered on a dynamic needs basis, CISO On DemandTM is based on the tried and proven, best practices methodology developed over the many years of collective security industry experience of its founding members. CISO On Demand brings an experienced and successful CSO/CISO and customized methodology to an organization for a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.

The CISO Group tailors its successful approach to security, compliance and risk management to each client’s unique circumstances. The CISO Group then delivers a strategy to architect, implement and maintain an organization’s security and compliance posture. The strategy includes knowledge transfer and planned transition of day-to-day administration to the customer’s own administrators. These administrators are trained and qualified as part of the service. The CISO On Demand service affords predictability and reliability to an organization. This allows for better planning on budgeting, resource allocation and compliance posture.

CISO On Demand is a comprehensive solution that is often out of reach for many organizations. Success is ensured by utilizing an experienced, successful CISO to architect and manage the implementation of an organization’s security strategy. Costs associated with implementing a company’s strategy are minimized as the CISO is not a full time permanent employee. This affords organizations the benefit of a world class CISO and highly specialized security talent for a fraction of the cost without the difficulties, complications and commitment of hiring full time security leadership and technical staff.

With offices in Florida and Colorado, The CISO Group has both a local and national presence. The CISO Group offers a full range of security consultative services and solutions, comprised of experienced security veterans including founding members: Mitchell Ashley, Bobby Dominguez, Josh Karp, Alan Shimel and Parker Yates.

“The CISO Group affords us the benefit of an experienced CISO delivering a complete security and compliance strategy at a fraction of the cost of what an employee of that level would cost, even if we could find one,” said Sam Zietz, CEO of American Bancard, “The CISO Group provides our own internal security and compliance strategy, as well as serving as our partner for the PCI compliance management of our merchants.”

“We are very excited to be bringing The CISO Group to market. Most of us have been talking about starting something like this, based upon what we saw in the market, for a long time”, said Alan Shimel, CEO of The CISO Group. “I am honored to be working with such a talented group of professionals. Collectively we will bring security and compliance solutions to a wide ranging audience.”
