What if we told you that your organization could focus on its business objectives while maintaining a strong cybersecurity posture?
For cybersecurity professionals, the threat of cyberattacks and data breaches is a constant challenge that requires their utmost attention. However, with the rise of digital transformation and the increasing complexity of business operations, it’s becoming more difficult for organizations to maintain a strong cybersecurity posture while focusing on their core business objectives.
Fortunately, VerSprite’s Virtual CISO (vCISO) service provides organizations with the security solution they need. VerSprite’s vCISO service offers a cost-effective way to maintain a robust cybersecurity program tailored to your unique business objectives and operations.
The VerSprite vCISO service is designed to help organizations with limited resources or those lacking a dedicated CISO to define, plan, and implement a mature security program that aligns with industry standards and regulations. VerSprite’s team of vCISOs has executive-level experience creating security programs that work for business continuity and fit within the organization’s budget without compromising security.
So, what exactly is a virtual CISO?
A virtual CISO is a service that provides organizations with an experienced security consultant who can guide them through developing, implementing, and managing a strong security program. A vCISO can be hired to support an in-house CISO or take on all the duties and responsibilities of a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for start-ups and companies that need interim security leadership.
VerSprite’s team of vCISOs have executive-level experience creating mature security programs tailored to your unique business objectives and operations. They work with executive and operational teams to design and implement cybersecurity programs.
What to expect from a vCISO service?
VerSprite’s vCISO service guides organizations through the three stages of creating a security program – defining, planning, and operationalizing. In the defining stage, the VerSprite team conducts risk and maturity assessments, considering the leadership’s business and security objectives, the regulatory landscape, prior incidents, and client contractual obligations.
In the planning stage, vCISOs work with the company’s team to develop a security plan that integrates more robust policies and standards, determines the unique threat landscape, considers compliance requirements, conducts vendor risk assessments, establishes remediation timelines, and implements a security awareness training program.
Finally, in the operationalizing stage, vCISOs help the in-house team implement the security plan and report to the board. This ensures that the security program is aligned with the company’s objectives and operations while meeting industry standards and regulations.
VerSprite’s vCISO service is a cost-effective resource with security experience in multiple markets that combines business and security needs. It is an ideal solution for companies with sensitive data stored in their environment, those going through acquisitions, or new start-ups without a governance program.
