What is a virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO)?

For organizations that either don’t need or can’t afford a full-time CISO, but still have any one of the following needs:

  • Confidential global data, assets, applications, intellectual property, IT, etc. that needs security protection and privacy.
  • Lacking a consistent, custom, IT/Security direction, plan for the existing, future global enterprise.
  • Lacking confidence in existing or future IT, Cyber Security, Cloud Security, or application security direction.
  • Spiraling, exploding IT/Security costs and budget over-runs.
  • Need to raise the level of employee, vendor, IT/Security operations productivity and efficiency.
  • Lacking IT/Security expertise for C-Level Management: on-site, on-premise.

Fortify Experts can provide the above services at a fraction of what a full-time CSO/CISO costs.  Plus, you’re getting even more value because you have access to our security team.  

CIO Magazine states the average tenure of a CISO is only 17 months.  Investing in a full-time resource may not be the best strategy.

Are you asking the right questions?

  1. Is cyber security insurance your last line of defense? Do you know what it doesn’t cover?
  2. Are you concerned you are compliant but not secure?
  3. Do you know what criteria to use to decide which applications and assets should reside on the cloud and which should not?
  4. Have you identified all of the risks, threats, gaps, etc. in your data, applications, infrastructure, endpoints, framework, etc.?
  5. Have you identified all of the vulnerabilities in your existing computing platforms?
  6. Are you prepared to represent your Cloud/Non-Cloud security strategy and approach to the Executive Board and Share Holders?
  7. Is your C-Level Executive getting enough ROI out of the organization’s existing security controls and remediation changes?
  8. Do you know how to increase the level of business value of your organization via security?
  9. Are you confident your security team has enough resources and depth of knowledge available to keep your company secure and competitive in a global economy?
  10. Are you ready for future changes to the threat landscape and security market?

If you answered, “No” or “I don’t know”, “not sure”, “not confident” or “how would you measure that?” to any one of the above questions, we should talk.
