What is a vCISO?

If you aren’t familiar with cybersecurity you may be wondering what a vCISO is. Well, a vCISO stands for ‘virtual Chief Information Security Officer.’ A CISO’s responsibility is to work alongside company officers, business managers, and IT managers to effectively monitor and maintain the security of their organization’s applications, databases, computers, and websites.

Most large enterprises can afford to have their own internal CISO that can handle the strategy, implementation, operation, and assurance functions of a cybersecurity program. For small and mid-sized businesses, this is not a realistic goal. Most small and mid-sized businesses don’t have the funds nor the demand for a full-time internal CISO. Our virtual CISO does everything that an internal CISO could do at a price point right-sized for your small and mid-sized organization. In short, our vCISO service provides an easy-to-implement, cost-effective service that keeps you and your employees informed of threats to your small business. 

Our 3 Steps to Success

Our goal with the vCISO program is to keep your business informed, monitored, and resilient when dealing with the threat of cyber-attacks. Each of these services can be purchased on its own, or you can opt to check out our available small business cybersecurity packages listed below.

1) Inform

Our vulnerability assessments help you make informed business investment decisions. We find misconfigurations and other security weaknesses in your information technology systems. We then use the results to determine which risks you will accept, and which risks you’d like to resolve.

2) Monitor

They say the best defense is a good offense. We actively monitor the dark web to protect your small business. What if you could know that your employee’s account was compromised before an attacker could use that against you? Our dark web monitoring solution helps you do just that.
