Contracted CISOHaving top-level security is an expense many small to medium-sized businesses feel they can't afford. They rightfully so can't justify a full-time Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) on staff.
A Dangerous Knowledge Gap
Unfortunately, this lack of a critical position in their corporate infrastructure can leave a knowledge gap pertaining to both mandatory compliance regulations and security holes in their business. So with this one gap the company is open to liability, the director is open to liability and the security of the company's data is potentially open to cyber-criminals.
