Why Your Company Needs a Virtual Chief Security Officer

Today’s world is rife with an expanding list of information security threats. That’s why businesses of all sizes need high-level security support. But what if your company doesn’t have the in-house expertise and resources required for dealing with security risks? In this blog we discuss how having a Virtual Chief Security Officer (CSO) can help.

Cost Control

Not every business can afford to hire and pay a full-time, qualified security professional. And implementing an ongoing training program to upgrade the skill sets of your IT personnel is expensive and time-consuming. A Virtual CSO offers your business top-tier security support without having to add an employee to your payroll. For a fixed monthly fee, you have access to a security expert who assesses and helps remediate risks and threats to your data.

Compliance Knowledge

There’s an alphabet soup of regulations your business must comply with. Keeping up with every detail of each law can become a stressful full-time job. A Virtual CSO, on the other hand, identifies gaps in your compliance strategy and offers practical steps for meeting the requirements of a wide range of laws and standards, including:

  • SOX
  • GLBA

Placing regulatory compliance in the hands of a Virtual CSO allows you to focus on what you do best.

Breach Prevention

Unexpected attacks on data, applications, and networks can paralyze your business. A Virtual CSO ensures your company has a managed, reliable breach detection and response strategy. A seasoned executive oversees targeted security engineering projects and upgrades your systems to protect against malicious threats and cyberattacks. 

Periodic Testing

A “set and forget” security plan doesn’t work. Your security infrastructure should be routinely evaluated and tested for vulnerabilities. A Virtual CSO makes sure your ongoing defense strategy can handle ever-evolving threats and respond to future risks effectively.

Incident Investigation

The longer it takes to respond to a security incident, the greater the possibility of widespread damage to your business. You need an up-to-date plan for identifying attacks and responding to them efficiently. A Virtual CSO ensures your business can mitigate data loss and re-secure your network as quickly as possible.

As you can see from the benefits we’ve highlighted here, a Virtual CSO gives your business trusted, dependable, and affordable information security support.
