We can design and run hands-on exercises in real-world environments to prepare your team and wider organisation to deal with the ever-increasing complexity of the world in which we all operate.
This can be a highly rewarding opportunity to involve leadership and business teams in cyber security matters, building relationships, mapping out various organisational strengths and vulnerabilities, and then testing these in one or more scenarios.
Based on industry or company-specific issues, threats, or vulnerabilities, we can create a controlled environment in which responses and strategies can be tested and improved upon. Usually best-focused on the security team themselves.
SI’s Virtual CISO (VCISO) service brings your organisation World Class strategic, technical and operational expertise and advice. Our VCISO service offers existing security leadership a truly expert pair of hands to review or help execute key projects and strategy, and act as a sounding board to support and empower your team. Our GIAC certified consultants and high calibre network of CISOs and SANS affiliates, can partner with you to meaningfully improve your long-term security posture, whilst allowing you flexibility and control over your budget.
My budgets are already being cut in 2023 - why should I prioritise VCISO services?
When budgets are cut this is actually the perfect time to bring in a VCISO, to help you to create more streamlined and efficient processes and find savings in your tech stack. We can partner with you to review and prioritise what really matters to your business and your unique risk profile.
In which scenarios may I need a VCISO? As a CISO, would these services still be relevant to me?
CISOs can be unaffordable to smaller businesses or those with limited security budgets, and VCISOs can be brought in for specific projects or timeframes. Alternatively, you might already have a CISO, but require specific expertise or a sounding board from experts to solve an ongoing security issue. Or your company may only need an interim VCISO to cover leave or while waiting for a CISO to join your team.
How long should a VCISO engagement last - a day, a month or a few days per quarter?
This would depend on your cyber maturity and your organisational risk profile, but we can offer a timeframe which is bespoke to you and your budget in order to achieve your business goals.
How could a VCISO help my business?
A VCISO can help with a wide range of services; setting or reviewing strategic direction, risk management and assessment, crisis management support, developing stakeholder relationships, making the most of a specific engagement or empowering your team through training and coaching.
