With a shortage of trained professionals, recruiting a dedicated security expert with the knowledge and leadership required to prepare and execute a successful cybersecurity strategy is time-consuming, expensive and often simply not viable. Managing security risk is a core business function in every business nowadays. Additionally, most firms do not require a full time CISO. As a solution for the problem, a virtual CISO plays the role of a CISO but at a much less cost.
The virtual CISO will have at least 5 years of CISO information security executive leadership. For audits, by adding data into the same evidence chain as technical reports, policies, and procedures, a full timeline can be provided to auditors during their audit. That way, a fully linked set of evidence is provided to the auditor, demonstrating control of business
Our solution is specifically designed to offer vCISO as a service:
We enable you to engage a highly experienced virtual CISO in place of a cyber security analyst or an IT manager. The virtual CISO will have at least 5 years of CISO information security executive leadership
The services can be customized to meet the needs of your specific organization at a fraction of the cost since you will be choosing only services that are required
Validation of control is governed and chased by the vCISO team so that these event-based reports can be added to the evidence chain. This can be things like reviewing user access controls, reviewing employee on and offboarding logs in correlation with these user access controls, firewall rule reviews, and even the change and incident management monitoring
