Security Tapestry’s Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service provides access to experienced security professionals who can assist in the design, implementation, and ongoing oversight of your organization’s security infrastructure. The scope of the vCISO service is flexible and can be narrowed or broadened depending on your business objectives; it can efficiently address the needs of a specific project or process, or your security environment on a macro level.
So, whether you need to securely integrate a new acquisition, select and implement new security technology, or facilitate the modernization of your company’s security posture, Security Tapestry’s vCISO can help.
Our Virtual CISO (vCISO) services are available in four basic plans, all of which can be customized based on your company’s specific needs and goals:
Our Virtual CISOs can provide a security framework for your organization by working with you a set number of hours on a monthly basis.
A Security Tapestry vCISO can fill a short-term tactical need while providing security strategy, planning, execution, audit, and governance direction.
Our Virtual CISOs can provide the direction, oversight, and management for any project implementation that requires a high-level focus on security.
Use a vCISO from Security Tapestry to provide direction, mentoring, and training for a new resource on your organization’s security policies, guidelines, and standards.
Businesses with a CISO in place report the highest levels of confidence in their security stance, both in terms of optimization and clarity. Despite that, only about a third of companies have an executive whose sole focus is information security.
For small and mid-sized businesses, it may be difficult to justify the expense of a full-time CISO, never mind the challenge of recruitment. Asking other executives to fill that gap, however, is rarely a viable solution no matter how capable they may be in their primary roles, as they often lack the specific expertise required to outline a solid information security policy and drive it forward. Consider this – you may have the world’s leading cardiologist on your staff, but you wouldn’t let them fill in for a neurosurgeon, would you?
Contracting a virtual CISO from Security Tapestry can be far more cost-effective than hiring a full-time executive. A vCISO can fill exactly where you need them, for exactly as long as you need them to help design, implement, oversee your company’s cybersecurity ecosystem.
