Virtual CISO Services


Hiring a full-time C-level professional can be cost-prohibitive. My Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service provides companies of all sizes and industries with executive-level guidance and leadership, but without the costs of hiring a full-time “C-suite” employee.

This allows organizations in today’s constantly changing threat landscape to develop a security vision, strategically plan for the future, budget and uphold the integrity of the program.

The vCISO partners with you as a trusted member of your leadership team to develop and maintain a company security vision and strategy by doing the following:

  • Conveying industry trends and leading the team in architecting solutions.
  • Developing long-term security and compliance plans.
  • Budgeting and forecasting.
  • Assessing risk appetite and applying this to program development.
  • Determining the proper security framework(s) with which the company must comply.
  • Providing guidance and direction in achieving any compliance requirements the company may have.
  • Acting as an objective resource for boards of directors to rely on for advice and guidance independent of bias.

vCISO Pricing

The Virtual Chief Information Security Officer provides a depth of knowledge and breadth of experience to give you peace of mind in knowing you are leaning on the expertise of the best, at a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee. In addition, I offer subscription-based tiered pricing to fit the budget of organizations of all shapes and sizes. This makes the cost of a chief information security officer predictable and easier to budget.
