Virtual Chief Information Security Officer Solutions

In today’s world, it’s no longer a question of “if” you’ll face a cyberattack. It’s a question of “when.” To protect your business, you need a cybersecurity plan that will anticipate and neutralize threats before they can do any damage.

But if you don’t have time to become a cybersecurity expert and you don’t have the resources to hire a full-time person to fill the role for you, there’s still a way you can keep your organization safe. A virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) is a cost-effective alternative that gives your organization access to cybersecurity expertise and strategic guidance. Here’s what a vCISO can do for your business.

Test Your Systems for Weakness

A vCISO will regularly test your systems and run vulnerability scans to identify potential security concerns.

Ensure Regulatory Compliance

If your business has regulatory requirements, a vCISO can help keep you compliant.

Create Incident Response Plans

When an attack happens, you need to be ready. Your vCISO can help you develop a plan to respond.

What Is a vCISO?

A vCISO is a security expert — or even a team of experts — who specializes in providing strategic guidance and cybersecurity expertise to help you protect your business. Because vCISOs operate virtually as outsourced specialists, their services can be much more cost-effective than hiring a full-time CISO for an in-house position.

Why Do You Need a vCISO?

A vCISO is one of the most cost-effective ways for an organization to add cybersecurity expertise to their team. By hiring a vCISO, you can get strategic guidance and proactive cyberdefense to help protect your business from digital threats.

Here are three key benefits of using a vCISO.

  1. Security Expertise
  2. Opportunity to Learn
  3. Cost Savings
  4. Peace of Mind

Types of vCISO Support Offered

To anticipate and prevent cyberattacks, vCISOs must be flexible. The support we offer will depend on the needs of your business and can range from penetration testing to strategic planning and implementation. These support services are designed to protect your IT infrastructure while minimizing overall costs. Here are a few of the most common types of vCISO support.

Tests and Security Scans

One of the best ways to uncover vulnerabilities is by putting your systems through regular penetration tests and vulnerability scans. This gives you time to fix a problem before a cyberattack can exploit it.

Security Policy Review

Your organization likely has security policies and procedures in place. But are they enough? A vCISO will review and revise them to make sure they can help you achieve your security goals.

Compliance Review

If your business is subject to certain industry regulations, it’s critical you stay in compliance. Hiring a vCISO puts expertise in your corner to make sure you’re following all relevant regulations.

Incident Response

Unfortunately, every business will have a security incident at one time or another. Your ability to recover may depend on the quality of your incident response plan. A vCISO can help you create and implement an effective one

Expert Guidance

Whether you’re looking for new security tools or you’d like to improve the ones you already have, the world of cybersecurity can be daunting. Expert guidance and recommendations from a vCISO can be just what you need to make the right choice.
