In many organizations, the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and their team understands the need for a strategic approach to managing an enterprise information security program. However, continual tactical “fire drills” rarely allow time to be dedicated to strategic objectives. Given typical CISO resource constraints, efficient and effective operations is critical to success. Running a cybersecurity program through a disciplined program management approach enables CISOs to bridge gaps between tactical time pulls and the goals of a strategically oriented, business focused information security program. For smaller organizations that may not have a security staff at all, the Cybersecurity Program Management Office (PMO) concept provides a model for obtaining the necessary services.
