Virtual CISO Services
The Logical Choice Of Cyber Security
Ensuring the security of sensitive business information, including your clients’ sensitive personal and financial information, requires constant attention. And while not every business needs a full-time CEO to oversee this role, small and medium-sized businesses need the same level of security and intelligence that larger organizations have.
Here we intervene. With our virtual CISO service, we can protect your company at the level you expect from a full-time Chief Information Security Officer, without investing heavily in executive compensation and related service packages. Work with advanced vCISO professionals who can stay in touch with your team and learn about your local area and industry so you are aware of evolving threats and regulations.
What is virtual CISO?
The Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) is a professional who regularly works with organizations to provide all of the basic cybersecurity support we expect from an internal executive in a more efficient and affordable service model. Get daily cybersecurity advice and support from a dedicated vCISO and a long-term security implementation strategy, vision, design and guidelines.
vCISO conducts a comprehensive assessment of the company’s security position to identify vulnerabilities and optimize its long-term reputation. VCISO acts as a long-term resource for your team or as a temporary CISO and intervenes to set security standards, enforce controls, and respond to incidents quickly. As such, your approach to dealing with dynamic landscapes of threats will continue to evolve with industry best practices and regulations.
While hiring a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to manage risk management and information programs is not always cost effective, for a fraction of the investment you will pay our consultants can provide a service largely the same as hiring a full-time contractor. Reduce your risk profile with practical vCISO support from specialist advisors who are familiar with the small business environment. We are entrepreneurs, we wear hats like you, and we can protect your business with the right strategic and operational vision. Equip yourself with a proactive and independent virtual CISO that has the adaptability you need to meet external influences such as customer demands, test requirements and evolving threats.
Virtual CISO service Benefits
Turn your security profile into our practical and cost-effective vCISO support model that can be seamlessly integrated as an extension for your team.

Choosing a vCISO cybersecurity service package offers the strength of the knowledge of our combined team, combined with the personal attention of a dedicated vCISO with experience in your industry. In addition to this industry expertise, we provide the executive level strategy, security planning, annual risk assessment, and scalability you need to lose weight when your business needs to change.
