Digital security and compliance are more critical than ever, and recent directives from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have put a spotlight on the pivotal role of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs). Understanding and adhering to these directives is not just about legal compliance; it’s about safeguarding the integrity and trust of your organization in the digital landscape.

The Sakura Sky team recognizes the challenges and pressures CISOs face in this new regulatory environment and our data security service is designed to bridge the gap between the complex demands of SEC directives and the practical realities of implementing robust cybersecurity measures.

Why CISOs Need Support Now More Than Ever

The SEC’s enhanced focus on cybersecurity governance, risk management, and incident disclosure requires organizations to elevate their security practices.

For CISOs, this means:

  • Ensuring comprehensive visibility and management of cybersecurity risks.

  • Developing and maintaining a robust cybersecurity governance framework.

  • Promptly identifying, assessing, and reporting cybersecurity incidents.

The stakes are high, with the SEC’s directives emphasizing not just the technical aspects of cybersecurity but also the strategic and governance layers. Navigating this multifaceted challenge requires a partner who understands the nuances of cybersecurity compliance and strategy.
