Interim/Virtual CISO Services

category icon

Developing and managing a security program requires vision, experience, and an ability to make risk-based decisions that support business objectives. Our interim CISO services provide a team of seasoned risk professionals who know how to build a security program that delivers a roadmap for an effective and tailored security program.

For our interim/vCISO service offerings, we develop a custom-managed CISO program for you based upon current needs, maturity of the security controls, and IT platform. Recognizing that companies are in three potential states of defining, managing, or optimizing their security programs, we develop managed service models that align to these collective stages of security maturity.

CISOs today fall into two camps – the technical CISO who understand business risk or the CISO that is simply a figurehead. The latter will not yield progress for a security program invested in moving forward with an Information Security Management System that extends beyond a security plan. The former is the rarity but is fortunately increasing in need and popularity as companies require CISOs to be well-versed in both technical and business needs.
