Virtual CISO/CTO​

Why Virtual CISO

A virtual chief information security officer, or vCISO, is a professional who works with organizations to provide all of the essential cyber security support one would expect from an in-house senior executive within a more efficient and affordable service model.

vCISOs conduct a comprehensive assessment of a company’s security posture to pinpoint weaknesses and optimize their security standing over the long-term. Acting either as a long-standing resource for your team or as interim CISO, a vCISO will step in to establish security standards, implement controls, and respond rapidly to incidents-continually refining your approach to address the dynamic threat landscape along with industry best practices and regulations.

Virtual CISO Benefits

Transform your security profile under our convenient and cost-efficient vCISO support model that integrates seamlessly as an extension to your team. And while the substantial cost reduction in the virtual CISO model is most attractive, vCISO benefits are even further reaching to provide a distinct advantage over both executive hire and collaboration with a solo security consultant.

Choosing Cyber Security Services’ vCISO plan delivers the strength in our combined team knowledge paired with the personal attention of a dedicated vCISO who brings experience in your industry. And beyond that industry expertise, we offer executive-level strategy, security planning, annual risk assessments, and the scalability you need to ebb and flow with changing business demands.

How Virtual CISO helps you

vCISO will be the primary point-of-contact for all security related issues. A virtual CISO will also respond to incidents, answer security-related questionnaires for your customers, and respond to data breach should that arise.
