vCISO Innovation

Integrated Security at the Speed of Business

A New Era in Information Security

Cyber and compliance risks for small and medium-sized businesses are growing. Cyber insurance requirements are becoming steeper. Remaining cyber resilient is getting harder as cyber attacks are becoming more sophisticated and the threats are all encompassing.

Every Organization Needs a CISO

Every organization requires a Chief Information Security Officer to lead initiatives in cybersecurity, privacy, and data protection. But not every organization has the talent or resources to ensure a full-time on-premises CISO. This doesn’t mean that you need to remain vulnerable to cyberthreats, phishing scams, ransomware, and all the other dangers on the digital landscape.

Enter the vCISO.

Reducing Risks Through Cyber Resilience

A Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is part of the C-suite company leadership who is in charge of cybersecurity, sees the big picture, and understands how security and business are closely related. The CISO is an executive-level advisor who can speak the language of the Board, provide an overview of risks, create strategic plans, and help deploy the right levels of security controls and governance.

What a vCISO Does


Connects the organization’s goals to security risks


Creates a viable security strategy tied to the company objectives



Uncovers cybersecurity gaps and understands strategic vulnerabilities


Oversees compliance processes relevant to the industry


Implements remediation plan to address cyberthreats


Updates stake-holders of imminent digital risks


Reports to top management in a meaningful way
