Virtual CISO: Use cases

Choosing between a vCISO and a full-time in-house employee may be confusing. Let's figure out when a vCISO is the preferable choice.

Small sized business
A full-time CISO is too expensive for an SMB, but smaller organizations still need a mature and effective cybersecurity program. A virtual CISO can work in part-time conditions, crafting a security program fit for your organization by following the enterprise expert guidelines which couldn't be developed without vCISO's participation.
Compliance program
A virtual CISO's specialization consists of assistance in creating a cybersecurity strategy and execution plan that meets the specific security requirements for different business domains. If you need to align the compliance program with certain mandates, then a vCISO can help you create the step-by-step compliance program considering securing the protected information.
Cyber-spend needs to be constantly re-aligned. The cybersecurity measures developed 6 months ago might not be as effective as a measure of protection after a while. A virtual CISO can analyze the current budget or organization of each size and re-direct it to the weak spots effectively distributing it fully securing all your business-critical assets.
If you have decided on hiring a full-time CISO, hiring a part-time vCISO could provide the real business value by helping you find a full-time CISO with a professional inside of what knowledge such a professional should obtain to effectively manage your organization's cybersecurity strategy.
