A virtual chief information security officer (vCISO) can bring both strategic and operational leadership on security to companies that can't afford a full-time person in an executive cybersecurity role. In the midst of today’s industry-wide shortage of skilled security workers, vCISO could be the best option for finding and retaining critical security leadership.
A cybersecurity risk assessment helps you expose and prioritize issues that could undermine your organization’s security. The risk assessment process starts with a series of interviews during which a cybersecurity consultant will meet with key members of your organization to analyze your policies, procedures, and controls. The consultant will tailor the assessment to your organization’s size, industry regulations, business operations, and other special considerations. You’ll work through scenarios to forecast the consequences of vulnerabilities that are common in businesses like yours. One of the main benefits of a cybersecurity risk assessment is an increased ability to identify and prevent cyber incidents from impacting your organization.
