CISO as a Service

Security Leadership. On Demand.

CISO as a Service delivers security management, minus the overhead.

Depending on the size or budget of your organization, you may not have the resources for a full-time, on-site Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). But your security program still needs to be managed and monitored, right? We get it – and that’s why we offer CISO as a Service (CISOaaS) – an on-demand resource to help you manage and enhance your overall security posture.

“We collaborate with Ongoing Operations for CISO as a Service, which has proven to be extremely helpful for us. Information Security is a fundamental mandate for Tower Federal Credit Union. The OGO team has been able to push us forward faster, with a clear focus on creating and updating process, responding to audit findings, and improving our overall information security posture.” – Martin Breland, CEO Tower Federal Credit Union
