Having a Cyber Security Subject Matter Expert as a full-time employee could prove to be prohibitively expensive, especially in a smaller business where they may not be fully utilised. CND offers a service for an on-demand ‘virtual’ Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO), where the level of engagement is tailored to your business needs and to your budget.
An effective Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) understands the environment that a business operates in. They can prioritise the controls that need to be applied to corporate and personal information to manage risk. A Virtual CISO is someone who is not only on tap but proactively engaging with you as situations arise.
Your vCISO can undertake a variety of activities, as determined by a preliminary scoping of the role - from responding to your questions and security issues to conducting onsite visits, attending meetings and delivering briefings.
Once your vCISO has been selected, they will work with you to scope the requirement and build a roadmap for delivery. You will also have access to CND's threat intelligence updates: the latest security updates and notifications of relevant vulnerabilities to your declared assets.
The number of days required each week or month may vary according to what is being delivered and will be reviewed every 3 months, providing you with flexibility and budgetary control.
