CISO was struggling with executives using personal devices for company work, leading to cases of identity theft and more.
Executives were pushing back on the company extending protection into their home and on personal devices.
Intellectual property and company data was leaking outside the company controls.
Shortly after starting the new digital executive protection project, the executive team was compromised with identity theft.
We developed an actionable, four-step plan to help the CISO get buy-in from the executive team and enhance the company’s security posture.
Garner buy-in from the executive team for a digital, personal executive protection program that meets corporate standards for cybersecurity — while at the same time, overcoming their objections of giving up control of their own devices and their privacy.
Roll new program out with quick, efficient meetings to ensure executives are not taken offline or away from work for unnecessary periods of time.
Remediate the new, recent identity theft issues.
The CISO took control of their security and protected the entire company as a result. With help from BlackCloak, they stopped the bleeding of identity theft quickly without draining the company’s resources. They helped remove data broker information, change exposed passwords, and put credit monitoring in place. Now, executive personal mobile devices and computers have BlackCloak installed and existing malware has been remediated. Home network scans have been completed and vulnerabilities have been patched. Because the identity theft was remediated immediately, the risks of having to file disclosures with the SEC or announce publicly have been mitigated. The CISO didn’t only protect the company, they earned the appreciation of the entire executive team without invading their personal lives or removing their control.
