Nowadays, organizations host a vast range of information that needs protection because of its value to competitors or hackers. When a company is trying to prevent cybercrime threats, none will be more efficient than a CISO (Chief Information Security Officer). But today’s businesses are more into outsourcing all the IT and functionality services. As a result, hiring a virtual CISO is becoming a compelling option.
Why Choose a Virtual CISO?
Virtual CISOs Are Cost-Effective
The reason to choose a cybersecurity professional service provider like a vCISO is simple. In most cases, hiring a full-time CISO can cost your organization a lot, depending on the skill sets and the experience of a professional. On other hand, a virtual CISO has the same kind of knowledge and expertise without asking for lucrative wages and associated employment benefits.
Virtual CISOs Are More Experienced
A vCISO is more likely to work for a diversified range of industries. It gives them a broad range of expertise that can be beneficial for your organization.
vCISOs Can Work From Anywhere
You don’t have to hire someone locally as it will limit your options. In case, if you pay a CISO to relocate to where your office is, you have to pay more. If you hire a virtual CISO who works as a consultant, works can get done from anywhere in the world. You will get the exposure to choose more potential candidates with the location boundaries.
Pay For Only What You Consume
A virtual CISO performs the tasks based on a contract signed between the employee and the organization. Therefore, you will be paying for only the services you want from them.
What Exactly A VCISO Does?
A virtual CISO is no different than a full-time security officer and hence the offerings and services are very similar. But, a vCISO’s responsibilities will vary from one organization to another based on their specific needs. In most cases, a virtual CISO will work on:
- Information security planning and management activities
- Creating organizational and management structure
- Creating and implementing cybersecurity architecture
- Determining a security framework for your company
- Understanding the industry trends and leading your team in architecting security solutions
- Reviewing your current internal security systems
But, if your company has some different security needs, our cybersecurity professional services will work on that too.
Who Needs The Services Of A Virtual CISO?
Let’s walk through the most common reasons of whether such cybersecurity services will be a good fit for you-
An Organization With Sensitive Information
Pretty much every organization today, regardless of the size, niche, and work culture, has some data they need to protect. Now the question is whether the company is serious enough about hiring an expert to develop a security program to keep the data safe?
An Organization With Specific Information Security Needs
If you have to address a few specific security needs, you can hire a vCISO on a contract basis. These include helping to classify data, defining security policies, performing a risk management task, and so on.
