Hiring a full-time C-level executive can be cost-prohibitive. Blair Carlisle’s 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 senior leadership 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. Your Blair Carlisle vCISO partners with you as a trusted member of your leadership team to develop and maintain a company security vision and strategy.
As with an in-house CISO, your Virtual CISO will initially work closely with you to define a cyber security strategy and programme for your organization, unifying your strategic and operational functions. Once in place, they will manage the implementation of that programme and drive the delivery of cyber security improvements and risk mitigation. At the same time, they will proactively monitor real-time threats to your organisation enabling your Board to make informed cyber security risk decisions.
Your CISO will work with employees to ensure that all staff remain current in their awareness of threats to the business and comply with policies and procedures. An independent figure, they provide an essential service which allows the rest of the business to continue to function with minimal disruption but with greater assurance that they are protected. And should the need arise they can capably manage projects such as breach and incident response or independent audit.
