a. Cybersecurity Health Plan delivered by CISO as-a-Service (CiSOaas) Consultants

This is a scheme to develop cybersecurity health plans with funding support for eligible SMEs. Cybersecurity consultants (that have been onboarded by CSA) will take on the role of the SMEs’ “Chief Information Security Officers” (CISO), akin to providing a CISO-as-a-Service (CISOaaS) to SMEs who may not have in-house cybersecurity personnel.

b. What you can expect

If you are just getting started in your cybersecurity journey, the CISOaaS cybersecurity consultants onboarded by CSA will help you to improve your cyber resilience through cyber health “checkups”. You will develop a cybersecurity health plan tailored for your needs and work towards attaining CSA’s Cyber Essentials mark.

If you already have implemented good cyber hygiene, or already achieved CSA’s Cyber Essentials mark, you are ready to progress towards adopting a risk-based approach to cybersecurity with CSA’s Cyber Trust mark.

c. Funding support for eligible SMEs

Eligible SMEs can enjoy up to 70% co-funding support when you sign up with the CISOaaS cybersecurity consultants onboarded by CSA.
