What is a Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO)?
A Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) is a highly skilled and experienced cybersecurity professional.
They provide expertise and guidance in cybersecurity, similar to an in-house Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). The primary role of a vCISO includes developing and executing an effective cybersecurity strategy for an organisation. They leverage their extensive cybersecurity and industry experience to assist organizations with various aspects of cybersecurity management.
This includes leadership in developing and deploying information security programs, managing increasing risks, and guiding the planning and development of security measures.

- Objective feedback on current risks and security maturity
- Insight into the wider security landscape, given experience in multiple industries and organisations
- Increased information security resilience and decreased likelihood of a successful attack
