How we help

Clients often ask us to fulfill the role of virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO). As the vCISO, we collaborate with the executive team and other stakeholders to ensure that intellectual property, financial systems and client data are safe, secure and accessible. Our services are tailored to the needs of the stakeholders:

GENERAL COUNSEL

General counsel informs the business of a compelling event or security incident. It could be a breach notification or a ransomware attack.

What are the next steps?

SVA Consulting can help create incident response plans and compelling event playbooks, communicate to the business and trading partners, and report corrective action plan progress to the board.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Your board is asking about cybersecurity. What is being done? Are we doing the right things? Are we moving at the right pace for our business?

SVA Consulting can help create a cybersecurity strategy, perform a risk assessment and create meaningful reports that your board can understand.

THE ORGANIZATION

We guide the implementation of security policies, processes and controls, including change management and training to promote adherence and compliance.

executive-team-box

EXECUTIVE TEAM

As an executive team, you have a business to run. You already know about the business risks. How do integrate cyber risks into your current risk profile? How does your organization show progress at reducing risk?

SVA Consulting can help plan and implement cybersecurity controls, integrate with trading partners, and create meaningful reports showing remediated risk.

REGULATING AUTHORITIES

Your regulating authority advises you of a new requirement, such as the Canadian Privacy Laws (PIPEDA), that is now part of your business requirements.

SVA Consulting can help create a compliance program, perform risk assessments, document corporate policies, and report progress to regulating authorities and the leadership team.

If you are faced with a data security event (e.g., breach, fraud, theft, ransomware), we work under your general counsel to provide the operational expertise needed to contain and remedy the situation. We then work with the executive team, board and legal counsel to identify security program enhancements that will address future risk.
