Frequently Asked Question

What does a virtual CISO do?

A virtual CISO provides an independent perspective, acting as an extension of a business to help it address challenges involved with managing information security. This may be on a regular or project-by-project basis, or for specific business goals. A vCISO’s role is wide-ranging and defined by the needs of each organization. It can involve assessing potential risks and developing policies, procedures and controls to help ensure that an organization’s security practices meet compliance standards.

What are the benefits of a vCISO service?

A vCISO service enables organizations without an in-house chief information security officer to manage cybersecurity risk in a cost-effective manner. Rather than having to source and pay for in-house specialists, companies can access highly qualified and experienced security expertise when they need it. By providing a critical combination of technical knowledge and corporate governance experience on a flexible basis, a vCISO ensures that a business is better placed to tackle current and emerging security threats.

How will a Virtual Chief Information Security Officer help?

A virtual chief information security officer will provide a range of security services:

• Manage your organization's security program
• Secure systems and data
• Mitigate and respond to threats
• Test and improve security controls and procedures
• Prepare for audits and security reviews

A vCISO can provide these and other agreed-upon security services on an as-needed basis.

What services can a vCISO provide?

A vCISO provides a range of services aimed at helping companies enhance their cybersecurity posture. The full scale and scope of the service will be defined by the provider and can vary significantly depending on business requirements. Services provided can include building and managing in-house security teams, writing security policies and procedures, completing risk assessments on operational security, sharing threat intelligence and providing advice and support in a crisis.

How much does a vCISO service cost?

The specific cost of a vCISO service will vary according to the particular needs and security requirements of your business. By reducing the potential damage caused by cyber threats and removing the pressure to recruit in-house security experts, a high-quality vCISO service offers great value to organizations.

What are the benefits of vCISO vs CISO?

While a CISO is a full-type employee who is dedicated to managing information security, there are many benefits to relying on a vCISO instead:

• Cost – Contracting a vCISO costs less than hiring a CISO, which makes virtual CISO services more accessible to smaller organizations that may have lower budgets.
• Independent experts – A vCISO harnesses diverse experiences to add to their expertise, and they are independently responsible for maintaining and advancing their knowledge.
• On-demand availability – Finding the right full-time CISO can be a long process and, once hired, they must be retained year-round. But a vCISO can work from anywhere and provide services when needed.

What are the pros and cons of a vCISO?

As with any decision, there are pros and cons to relying on virtual CISO consulting services.
A virtual CISO is a more affordable alternative to hiring a full-time Chief Information Security Officer but, as a contractor, they will not be solely dedicated to providing vCISOfeha services to your organization alone. They will be available to provide services at times agreed upon, or as-needed, but not necessarily on a standby basis as a full-time employee would be.

A vCISO can provide services on an as-needed basis and can provide them virtually, making them a useful option for organizations that are fully remote or unable to find local talent. But it may be difficult for a remote vCISO to handle challenges that require on-site presence.
