The Virtual CISO
- Fractional CISO for small businesses needing CyberSecurity guidance
- Short-term Interim CISO while you are searching for your Unicorn
- Longer term vCISO to help develop and implement a CyberSecurity Framework
Team CISO can help you by augmenting your current IT Staff with a virtual CISO
( vCISO or CISO for Hire).
One Breach or Ransomware event will likely cost you more than several years worth of Cyber Security Guidance!
Larger organizations have the ability to justify the resources and expense of having a full time CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) on staff to manage their Cyber Security program. This individual will work with internal and external auditors, HR, compliance and legal teams. They will provide Cyber Security guidance to the IT Operations team as well as the Application Development team. They are a one stop shop for ensuring the security practice of the organization.
On the other hand, if you are a smaller business, and can't justify having the salary and resources of a full time expert on staff, we can help.
Leverage our team of experienced Information Security Governance Professionals to help assess your security posture and guide you through building and maintaining an appropriate Information Security program. This is a time and material engagement, designed in increments of 6 months.
