Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (VCISO)

Security awareness is not a “one and done” event.

Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (VCISO)

VCISO services help executives, security and technology teams safeguard information assets while supporting business operations with augmented cyber expertise to reduce business risk, signal commitment to data security and enhance overall security posture.

What does a Virtual Chief Information Security Officer do?

A virtual CISO is an assigned resource with experience building and improving information security programs. Starting with a risk assessment, a vCISO first gets an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of an organization’s security program. Based on the results, the vCISO then works with executive leadership teams to understand goals, budget, and bandwidth—allowing them to provide actionable recommendations, or a roadmap, based on the business’s goals and the risk assessment’s findings. With the roadmap in place, a virtual CISO works with the organization’s internal security team to train staff and make the recommended improvements, improving the ability of the organization to protect its sensitive information and increase its operational efficiencies.

Our Customized Virtual CISO

We provide a team of experts that possess the world-class skills and decades of experience your information security program needs to be successful.
