ProCircular’s vCISO Services

ProCircular’s virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) services support and augment your security, risk, compliance, and privacy programs. Headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, we help you design, implement, and manage the various elements of your security, risk, compliance, and privacy programs.

What is a vCISO?

vCISO stands for virtual Chief Information Security Officer. A vCISO is a cybersecurity expert who uses their vast cybersecurity and industry knowledge base to help organizations develop and manage an information security program that fits their business needs and goals.

Some organizations may hire an in-house CISO, but many find that outsourcing this role makes more sense for their needs and budget.

What does a vCISO do?

A virtual CISO performs the essential cybersecurity support tasks needed to protect an organization’s networks, data and personnel. This includes things like implementing and monitoring security frameworks, managing IT strategies and plans, creating incident response plans, coordinating GRC efforts and more.

When you invest in ProCircular’s vCISO services, you’ll get access to seasoned cybersecurity experts to help lead initiatives and assist with cybersecurity program development, maturation, and management within your organization. ProCircular will provide an overall security strategy, roadmap, implementation advice, and oversight without hiring a full-time CISO.

Serving organizations in Iowa, Minnesota and across the Midwest, our vCISO service will help your organization make rapid improvements. ProCircular delivers security-related insight directly to executives, providing expert advice and guidance to inform strategic business decisions. The following vCISO categories are constructed to offer varying levels of service depending on your needs:

  • Partner – The “all-in” approach. ProCircular acts as a complete CISO for the duration of the subscription.
  • Transitional – The “interim” approach. ProCircular assumes temporary continuation of an existing security program while a new CISO is integrated.
  • Supplemental – Our “support” option. ProCircular provides expert assistance to support an existing CISO, adding to the CISO’s operational reach and capabilities without adding staff.
