Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO)
Securing your business data and ensuring the same level of security to customer’s sensitive information requires constant attention and proper guidance of an executive-level leadership popularly known as CISO (Chief Information Security Officer). A CISO is responsible for defining and enforcing organizations’ cybersecurity culture, policies, procedure, and security architecture. The challenge here is that not many organizations can afford a full-time executive-level CISO to oversee these functions, given the limited access to cybersecurity experts in the market today. Hence there is a need to bring such leadership insight through Virtual CISO to address the following challenges which many organizations face.

Bridging and Hiring a New Full-Time CISO
The departure of a business’s existing CISO may be untimely with regard to current security initiatives. A seasoned vCISO can come in, provide value in reviewing the current cybersecurity strategy and help recruit, select and transition to a full-time CISO.
Developing a Mature Cybersecurity program for a Smaller Organization
When a full-time CISO is too costly for an SMB, a vCISO works part time to provide enterprise-caliber expertise to craft a security program and the organization would, otherwise, not be capable of developing.
Creating a Compliance Program
Organizations with or without a current CISO many not have the expertise on a specific compliance mandate and how it translates to creating policy and process to secure protected information. A vCISO that specializes in a given compliance regulation can assist to develop a strategy and execution plan that meets the specific mandates – think PCI DSS experts helping retail businesses or a HIPAA savant supporting a healthcare org.
Re-aligning Cyber Spend
Whatever the organization was doing 6 months ago to protect against cyber risk is likely not as effective today. A vCISO can help organizations of every size by taking a look at the current budget, how it’s spent, and help identify ways to more effectively and efficiently spend it to create a more secure stance.
