A “virtual” Chief Information Security Officer is a practical option for any business and one that SVA Consulting can provide that will integrate as an extension of your team. First, finding a full-time CISO is next to impossible due to the demand on experience and availability. Second, they typically come with a high executive compensation package and third, their tenure in typically shorter than desired.
vCISOs are highly competent, bring executive leadership, are available on-demand (part time or full time), have a variety of skills and experiences, and are contracted to meet the desired results set by the business, with no hidden vendor-based or political agendas. Whether the company is small or mid-size, each business needs the same level of security and intelligence that larger firms have in place….if not more so.
Your team will have a single point of contact as your vCISO works with them to create a cybersecurity framework flexible to your needs, complete with executive advising, security controls and compliance, operational policies, best practices, staff education around how to prepare, assess and respond to security incidents, and clear communication with the leadership team and board of directors.
