A bespoke solution for your business
Like a full-time CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) commonly employed in enterprise businesses, as a vCISO we work in partnership with your teams to understand your business, your risks and goals. From the information we gather, we will formulate, direct and implement your cyber and information security strategy.
All businesses are unique and operate differently, that’s why it is important that our flexible Virtual CISO service is tailored to your specific needs and requirements, and encompasses the right blend of responsibilities for you. Our service offers a level of investment, flexibility and collaboration suitable for your business and its needs. We will work with you from the outset to establish the most important and cost-effective mix of service elements for your business.
We understand completely the delicate balance between the need to be secure and the ability to be responsive and agile. We want to enable you to use IT securely, not prevent innovation and agility. When not working with you, our advisers are constantly keeping up to date with the latest threats and how to deal with them, so your team can get on with running your business.
All service levels start with an initial assessment and the planning and creation of your cyber security scorecard and cyber security road-map. We will monitor and drive progress against your plan throughout our engagement with you, constantly improving your security and reducing the risks to your business.
There will be many things to consider when building this service for your business, and our vCISO can work across multiple areas, such as:
Security Frameworks & Compliance
Should you consider Cyber Essentials? Maybe you’re thinking about ISO 27001? We will help you understand the benefits and work involved based on your individual business and help you get there – if that’s the right choice for you.
From understanding the risk associated with new technology to helping you understand the tools you need and how to choose, our team can work with you through this process.
Executive and staff awareness
A huge part of cyber security management is education for business owners, executives and your team. This is a key deliverable for customers who choose our part-time Virtual CISO service but we can also provide awareness & training programmes on a standalone basis.
Building training frameworks that fit with your business needs and consider specific threats to your organisation must be supported through ongoing communications, as building a culture of security and being front of mind in staff is not achieved by one off or annual training.
strategy & role definition
Working closely with your existing team we will work on the development of your cyber security strategy and defining the required roles & responsibilities needed within the business to effectively deliver the strategy.
policies & processes
Ensuring that everyone knows what to do and how to do it is key to a cyber security strategy and our Virtual CISO will work on developing and implementing all required policies and related processes. Also ensuring they remain relevant ongoing will be a part of the vCISO role.
supply chain governance
Our vCISO will be on hand to ensure you can safely and securely manage your Supply Chain and 3rd Party Governance. As well as this we will be able to work with you on management of supplier relationships, assurance and audits.
ongoing awareness & ad-hoc support
The Virtual CISO service from CyberScale doesn’t stop with fixed responsibilities, we want to ensure your business is as cyber secure as possible ongoing, so we will work with you to increase awareness of risks and opportunities as well as advising on topics as they arise.
