Virtual CISO Advisory Services Help Prepare, Protect and Strengthen Defenses

Our vCISO Advisory Services are custom tailored to each specific situation and your information security needs. While the scope and length of Virtual CISO services can be tailored for any size or type of organization, there are four areas where most companies benefit from the experience of a vCISO:

 

Strategy Definition

Guiding executives across business functions and IT, CyberSecurityResource’s vCISO helps identify business threats, provides a baseline for your current security program and defines security strategy in line with business objectives and technology needs.

 

Our phased approach helps ensure an efficient and effective strategy that leverages NIST 800-53 and can be mapped to multiple cyber regulations (e.g., PCI, HIPAA, GDPR).

 

Assessment

Evaluating culture, processes and technologies from a security governance perspective, CyberSecurityResource’s vCISO develops prioritized actions to help effectively manage a security minded culture and your information security strategy and program.

 

Assessments can include:

  • Interviews with stakeholders across the technical, business and executive teams as well as gathering documentation
  • Robust reviews of a variety of areas, including information asset management, acceptable use policies, data classification, threat and vulnerability management and third-party management

 

Oversight

Based on the assessment findings, CyberSecurityResources’s vCISO can provide various types and levels of ongoing support, including:

  • Developing policies and procedures to close gaps in documentation
  • Developing a remediation plan with actionable, prioritized recommendations
  • Implementing the remediation plan
  • Providing ongoing strategic guidance that is less intensive, but assists the organization in maintaining long-term goals

 

Training

Security awareness is an important part of maintaining a robust IT Security program as well as to create a security minded culture. Your vCISO can recommend and help implement training on topics for every department and individual user group within your organization. This can range from the highly technical (e.g., secure coding practices) to general data handling education to combating business email compromise. The vCISO can also oversee controlled phishing campaigns, conducted by CyberSecurityResource, to determine security awareness levels among employees.
