vCISO services solve the CISO talent shortage:

Instead of hiring full time CISO, many organizations are hiring vCISO on subscription basis or on a retainer to gain access to expert cyber security advice in form of a virtual CISO when required.  vCISO offer C level strategic assistance and tactical level guidance in devising and implementing strategy to build a security program, to assess security program, to reduce risk and to prevent or mitigate the impact of the attacks. 


What may be the primary concern for an organization to seek vCISO services: The primary concern for an organization seeking Information Security (InfoSec) services is the protection of their sensitive data and digital assets. They are deeply concerned about potential cyber threats and vulnerabilities that could compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their information systems. These concerns often stem from the increasing frequency and sophistications of cyberattacks, as well as the potential legal and reputational consequences of data breaches.


Organizations may also worry about compliance and industry regulations and data protection laws, as failing to meet these requirements can result in severe penalties and damage to their reputation. Moreover, organizations frequently express worries regarding the expenses associated with Information Security services and their ability to seamlessly integrate these services into their current IT infrastructure without causing disruptions. The aim of an organization is to find a harmonious equilibrium between security and operational effectiveness while adhering to budget limitations. 


A Virtual CISO can effectively address primary concerns for organizations seeking information security services by providing expert guidance and support without the need for a full-time in-house CISO. They assist in identifying and mitigating security risks, ensuring cost-effectiveness, seamless integration into existing IT infrastructure and finding the right balance between security and operational efficiency, all while staying within budget constraints.

Information Security Strategic Plan:

Information Security Strategic planning is about setting long-term goals, establishing the directions and constraints, which allows executives, management and employees to see where they are expected to go, focus their efforts in the right direction.

What’s Included in an Information Security Strategic Plan?

An information security strategic plan can position an organization to mitigate, transfer, accept or avoid information risk related to people, processes and technologies. An established strategy also helps the organization adequately protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. The business benefits of an effective information security strategic plan are significant and can offer a competitive advantage. These may include complying with industry standards, avoiding a damaging security incident, sustaining the reputation of the business and supporting commitment to shareholders, customers, partners and suppliers.

An information security strategic plan include:

  • Defining consistent and integrated methodologies for design, development and implementation;
  • Detecting and resolving problems;
  • Proactively making decisions to more efficiently deliver results;
  • Eliminating redundancy to better support achievement of objectives;
  • Planning and managing human resources, relying on external expertise when required to augment internal staff;
  • Evolving into an organization where security is integrated as seamlessly as possible with applications, data, processes and workflows into a unified environment.

A gap assessment of an organization’s current state and existing efforts is an important first step in establishing a security strategic plan. A documented information security program assessment against a defined InfoSec international standard or framework such as ISO/IEC 27002, 27701, 22301 or NIST CSF — especially when that standard is a part of the strategy — enables more efficient planning. Additional steps to building a policy include defining the vision, mission, strategy, initiatives and tasks to be completed so they enhance the existing information security program. The plan should contain a list of deliverables or benchmarks for the initiatives, including the name of the person responsible for each control.
