The Value of a Virtual/Fractional CISO in Small/Mid-tier Business
Larger organizations have the ability to justify the resources and expense of having a full time CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) on staff to manage their Cyber Security program. That said, small and mid-tier businesses have the same Cyber Security challenges, but without the resources and funding to respond.
This Discussion will help you understand how a Virtual CISO can help you assess your security profile and guide you through remediating any outstanding issues within a constrained budget. Welcome to the first 30 days of a vCISO engagement!
