You know your business needs a better cybersecurity direction, but you’re not financially or logistically ready to hire your own Chief Information Security Officer.

Where can you turn? To an experienced virtual CISO.

A Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) handles all the responsibilities of an internal CISO, working with your executive team and internal functions and leading them toward a continuously secure state.

Your vCISO helps build trust with your customers and shareholders with questionnaire responses, external representation, and robust presentations, builds a security plan quickly and cost effectively, provides guidance for compliance standards, and much more.

What’s the difference between a security consultant and a vCISO?

Consultants create a cybersecurity to do list; virtual CISOs oversee your entire
security program to ensure proper implementation and continuous business value.

Are you ready for a cost effective solution for leading your security team?

Are you effectively utilizing a CISO?

A Chief Information Security Officer will cost your organization an average of about $220,000 per year in salary alone.*

You Need a Digitized Solution for a Digital Age

The Old Age

Hiring a senior security officer has been historically expensive for businesses, but you still need a reliable CISO you can count on. For this reason, it ends up falling on the CTO or the person in your company with the sharpest technical skills.

Unfortunately, junior security specialists are focused on specific projects and have a narrow focus; while a Chief Information Security Officer has a clear view of your overall cybersecurity needs.

Your CISO Problem

You know you need an experienced CISO to manage your cybersecurity efforts, but you can’t afford one or don’t know who to trust.

Typically, companies lean on CTOs, CFOs, General Counsel, or anyone concerned about the organization’s risk, to manage cybersecurity. You might have junior security employees, but they don’t have the time or experience to implement a strategic top-level security roadmap.

You’re stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to adding a CISO to your team.
