Virtual CISO

DON’T LET A DEFICIENT IT SECURITY STRATEGY FRUSTRATE YOU. EXPERIENCE A NEW REALITY WITH VIRTUAL CISO CONSULTING.

WHO NEEDS VCISO CONSULTING

Whatever your organization’s mission, the security of your and your customer’s data should always be top of mind. It’s essential now more than ever that your organization has a security program in place to both meet the expectations of your customers and to align with any compliance mandates to which you are held accountable.

Most businesses would likely agree on the importance and necessity of a security program. While it seems clear cut, actually implementing such a program is not always that simple. Not only is security talent hard to find, capable individuals are often expensive to hire. This can be a real challenge when IT budgets are already spread too thinly. Even if you are able to get budget approval for a high-dollar resource, the organization will still likely have to outsource things like risk/security assessments, penetration testing, vulnerability scanning, security awareness training, phishing exercises and more. This is where being able to tap into a team of expert security resources with experience and knowledge can offer tremendous value. Wherever you do business, Sikich has you covered with its virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) consulting services.

With Sikich’s vCISO consulting, you can utilize the information security expertise of Sikich to help your organization with implementing and maintaining security best practices. A senior member of our consulting team will function as your vCISO. In this role, Sikich will focus on strategy and IT security oversight, ready to help whenever you need it. Your personal vCISO will work in an “on-call” fashion for your organization during normal business hours, and your organization can leverage your vCISO as much or as little as needed.
