vCISO Services

ProCircular’s Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) services support and augment your security, risk, compliance, and privacy programs. We help you design, implement, and manage the various elements of your cybersecurity needs.

What Is a vCISO Consultant?

vCISO stands for Virtual Chief Information Security Officer. A virtual CISO consultant is a cybersecurity expert who uses their cybersecurity and industry knowledge to help organizations develop and manage an information security program that fits their business needs and goals. vCISO consultants work with IT departments, executives, and other team members to build an information security strategy that provides protection and compliance. An experienced virtual information security officer helps companies stay on top of the threat landscape and compliance standards without hiring an internal team.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does a Virtual CISO Consultant Do?

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

What’s the difference between a virtual CISO and a traditional CISO?

With exclusive focus inside one organization, a traditional CISO works alongside the executive team to help influence decisions regarding security practices. Although the convenience of having a CISO in-house is of value, the salary cost is a big investment. At a lower cost than a traditional CISO, a virtual CISO is an outsourced, on-demand security practitioner. A vCISO can be a single expert or include a team of experts with a breadth of knowledge and expertise from extensive training and experience that enhance an organization’s internal capabilities.

When Should You Hire a vCISO Consulting Company?

An information security program is only as strong as its consultant. If you are without a current CISO, odds are you are operating without sound security advice and at risk of a data breach. When hiring a vCISO, look for consultants that are experienced in your area of business or adjacent to your business industry. Keep in mind, a virtual chief information security officer will be working within all areas of your organization, so it’s also important to hire someone who fits your company culture.
