Cybersecurity Strategy, Policy and Program Design
A cyber strategy and security program are the foundations of a well-implemented cybersecurity approach. Policies, again, form an integral part of a sound cyber governance implementation.
BDO can therefore assist in:
- CIO and CISO advisory services / cyber consulting. Due to the complexity of cybersecurity and the management of a cybersecurity team in general, we have seen many CIOs and/or CISOs struggling to manage both the operational and strategic aspects of their cyber presence. BDO can assist CIOs and/or CISOs with advisory services which could include cybersecurity governance advisory, data privacy compliance advisory, cyber risk assessments, cybersecurity strategy development, cybersecurity program development, cyber threat assessments, cyber incident response assistance, cyber insurance gap assessments, and cyber forensics.
- Regulatory compliance. It is important that regulatory compliance is incorporated from the beginning in a cyber approach. BDO provides legal and compliance advisory services and can assist clients with specific compliance issues around cybersecurity (e.g. cyber law) and privacy regulation (e.g. POPI, PAIA, GDPR etc.).
