What is a vCISO?

A vCISO is an outsourced cyber expert who provides information security consultancy and strategic guidance to support your business. Unlike a traditional Chief Information Security Officer, a vCISO works on a retainer basis, catering to your business’ unique requirements. Virtual CISOs provide instant access to senior security expertise, helping you look objectively at your business, make technology recommendations, and manage risk. With a vCISO, your business gains expertise and skills without requiring in-house staff, providing a cost-effective solution for managing your security strategy.

Virtual CISO FAQs

What does a CISO do?

A chief information security officer (CISO) is responsible for a business’ information and data security. A CISO’s responsibilities can include:

  • Analysing any immediate threats to the data and security of a business
  • Setting the security strategy for the business
  • Raising awareness with the board on any potential security issues with business decisions
  • Enforcing security best practice measures
  • Upon a breach occurring, investigating what went wrong and how the issue can be resolved to avoid the same outcome again
  • Ensuring staff handle data securely and IT infrastructure is designed with best security practices in mind

A CISO will ultimately oversee the protection of both business and customer data, as well as protecting business’ infrastructure from malicious actors.

Who needs a vCISO?

Small and medium sized businesses often find they don’t have the resources to hire a full-time CISO, which makes a virtual CISO a viable option to still manage their information security requirements.

A vCISO is a key resource for any business that wants to use its compliance as a competitive advantage, with even large enterprises benefiting from a vCISOs expertise.

How much does a virtual CISO cost?

The cost of a virtual CISO service can vary depending on the scope of work, time required and experience of the service provider. As part of our service we will conduct an initial scoping call to define your requirements and understand your business priorities. This will enable us to determine the best solution for your needs.
