Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO)

Get full access to an experienced security thought leader at a fraction of the full-time cost


Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO)

StrataCore works with experienced security consulting partners that have CISO experience in an array of industries. These leaders can guide your security staff with and help your company navigate the complexities of selecting the right information security technologies, processes, and strategies. They start by learning about your company and understanding your business objectives, then develop a plan that aligns with your security needs. From there, they are able to function as an extension of your business and deliver expert security insight, leadership and support on an ongoing basis.

Why you need a vCISO

Why you need a vCISO

Every company should have a clearly articulated information security strategy. Without it, an organization will never be able to effectively balance information security and general business challenges.

A virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) is designed for organizations that need someone to take responsibility for the development and growth of the information security program but find it difficult to hire and retain a CISO. Hiring a full-time CISO can be an expensive and time-consuming proposition that results in a person who may not stay long due to industry demand for their position. A vCISO can provide everything you need at a fraction of the cost, with better stability. If a company spends too much on information security, it diverts precious resources from operating and growing the business. Too little spend, and the organization experiences unhealthy levels of unmitigated risk.
