Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (VCISO) Services

With cybersecurity concerns on the rise, one of the most important roles in a company is the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). The CISO is a senior-level executive responsible for providing leadership, strategy, and guidance to manage risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the organization’s information assets. Large companies have a hierarchy of staff in the CISO department. However, if you are a small to medium-sized company, you may not have the resources, or even the need, for a full-time CISO.

This is when Virtual Chief Information Security Officer services can play a vital role in your cybersecurity posture. VCISO services give you the cybersecurity expertise and strategic leadership your business needs, minus the cost of an on-staff, in-house CISO. It's the perfect solution in so many circumstances.

The Challenges of Do-It-Yourself Security

Managing your cybersecurity and information security in-house comes with many challenges. High payroll costs is just one of them. Other challenges include:

  • Highly specialized training and expertise are required
  • Shortage of information security professionals and a growing IT skills gap
  • Specific, complex requirements in the healthcare sector, among defense contractors, and in the payment card industry
  • Constant development and release of sophisticated new security tools, technologies, and protocols
  • Continuing evolution of malware and ransomware, social engineering exploits including phishing, and emerging threats
Using expert VCISO services prevents these from becoming obstacles to your information security program and overall cybersecurity posture.
