Virtual CISO Managed Service

Why a Virtual CISO (vCISO)?

Businesses of all size face the same security challenges. Small to medium sized organisations often do not have a full-time chief information security officer (CISO) or information security manager, leaving a significant gap in that leadership and oversight.

A virtual CISO (vCISO) (also known as CISO-as-a-service) provides both the leadership guidance and technical expertise necessary to develop and deploy an information security programme, manage the increasing risks and threats and protect your organisation's data, services and reputation.
