A designated Virtual CISO can help you evaluate risks, determine technology solutions, evaluate technical controls, select compliance standards and plan and execute roadmap items.
What is a vCISO?
A virtual CISO, or vCISO, is an outsourced security professional who serves as the CISO for your organization on a part-time or project basis. Unlike an in-house CISO, a vCISO is not a full-time employee of your organization, and therefore is a more cost-effective solution for businesses looking to improve their cybersecurity posture.

A vCISO, short for virtual CISO, performs the same role as a regular CISO or Chief Information Security Officer who is responsible for developing and implementing an organization’s information security program. However, a vCISO is not a full-time employee and is instead responsible for multiple companies. This service can be provided by trusted partners, individual security practitioners, or consultants.
vCISO is a service. It can be provided by one person or a company.
Generally, a vCISO service is ongoing and begins with a risk assessment, followed by a remediation plan and execution phase. However, it could also be a one-time or periodic risk assessment that produces a posture report and gap analysis.
When choosing a vCISO service provider, it is important to ensure that an experienced security professional is leading or at least a part of the team. This helps to ensure that the vCISO services you receive are personalized, cost-effective, efficient, and adhere to international best practices.
