Think You Can’t Afford a Chief Information Security Officer? Meet the vCISO!
No one disputes the value of a full-time Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) as part of a company’s executive team, but not all businesses can afford the $250,000+ per year that such a position often commands. If you’re a SMB, what are your options when facing ever-changing regulatory requirements, a distinct lack of available cybersecurity talent, skyrocketing cybersecurity salaries, limited operating budgets, and corporate politics?
One option is the appointment of a Virtual CISO, or vCISO, to take care of your cybersecurity program. With this program, Netsync will provide a qualified, top-tier expert – not an anonymous LiveChat operator – to work with you in all areas of cybersecurity. The vCISO will:
- Review your security framework, practices and procedures
- Analyze the security products you have in place
- Conduct penetration testing to see where any gaps in your security may lie
- Check to see if there are any lurkers in your current network.
After this review, the vCISO will create a full report, detailing what you currently do well in terms of cybersecurity, and what areas need attention, a well as detailing any items necessary for specific compliance requirements (HIPAA, SOX, PCY, etc.) and submitting a plan for moving forward. If a security threat is detected, Netsync’s specialists will provide expert guidance, as well as a recommendation of next steps for your organization. Through all of this, the CIO is kept in the loop at all times.
