Virtual CISO, vCISO &

Fractional CISO

Finding an experienced CISO is a challenge; carrying the weight of one on your payroll can be even harder. With years of experience as actual CISOs in public and private sectors, we have the expertise to address your stakeholders needs with absolute confidence. With you, your board, your stakeholders, and management team, we will develop the strategic vision, resources, and protocols to maintain an appropriately sized, measured, and effective security program.  Let us be your vCISO.

We offer:

  • Executive virtual CISO services to you, your management team, and board - advising on all forms of cyber risk and plans to address them.

  • Board, management team, and security team coaching

  • Vendor product and service evaluation and selection

  • Maturity modeling operations and engineering team processes, capability and skills

  • Board and management team briefings and updates

  • Operating and Capital budget planning and review

We provide a well-grounded, practical, and focused approach, delivering realistic and attainable security objectives.  We focus on recruiting and developing high impact teams, drawing on technology already in an organization before pursuing a vendor solution, and creating end to end processes that give actual lift to a company's ability to secure its people, assets, and data.  Our approach is based on the utilization of more cost effective software implementations, strategic alignment of security organizations, and best practices for CIOs and CEOs alike.

Our methodology is simple.

​1. We understand your current profile – threats, assets, strengths, weaknesses, partners, regulatory obligations and investments through our own research of proprietary data sources and talking to you/your teams.

2. We measure your controls and relative operational and program effectiveness, through scenario analysis and walkthroughs - building a full understanding of where you are and where you need to get.

3. We provide a plan to bring you to your target profile and help you execute.  This may include:

  • Program, policy, procedure documentation

  • Strategy development

  • Procurement and vendor negotiation

  • Identification, implementation and management of tools and managed services providers

  • Oversight of team and program activities

We approach security as a business problem - we’re here to reduce your risks and build the confidence you and your organization needs to operate through “business-aligned” security.

Our team is comprised of the industry’s very best and brightest.  All have held CISO or CSO roles in large organizations, built effective security programs, managed risk within an organization’s appetite and delivered results in line with best practices.
