you are never to small!
The addition of Chief Information (Security) Officers (CIO/CISOs) as a part of the Executive Management Team in organizations has become commonplace. With the increase in workloads and potential issues with moving to the cloud, virtualization of the data center, and the addition of mobility into the organization—the need to address complex CyberSecurity threats has never been greater. CISOs provide critical guidance on overall information security, adherence to compliance and regulatory requirements, and generally understanding the risks that face each and every organization – no matter the size. Over the past decade, CIO/CISOs have moved from a necessary but ‘costly overhead’ position for an organization, to being critical within the organization often sharing the C-Suite with the CEO, CFO, COO, and Legal. However, there is no “one size fits all’ in the business world. Information Security, big and small, simple and complex, is critical and unique to every company and requires customized virtual CIO/CISO services.
Fortunately, the rise of Virtual CISOs (aka: vCISO) presents an effective, flexible and affordable alternative for organizations that need access to high-level Information Security expertise but don’t want the expense of an in-house officer.
