Why Virtual CISO Service?
Small to mid-sized organization are required to adhere to a wide range of legal, regulatory and contractual security requirements; however, for several reasons (such as high costs, limited availability of qualified resources) they find it difficult to keep it up. Most of these organizations have staff who can manage technology products but remain challenged when it comes to addressing their long-term or strategic security needs. Hiring a full-time staff at an executive level can be a very expensive matter as well. Chances are you don’t really need a full-time resource though; all you really need is a trusted advisor who can provide security leadership and guidance ‘on demand’ and help with the ‘heavy lifting’ when necessary.
