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.
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.
Types of vCISO Support Offered
To anticipate and prevent cyberattacks, vCISOs must be flexible. The support they 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.
