The Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO)
Expert Security Knowledge Within Your Organization
One of the most common defects my clients is the lack of security personnel. The reasons for this may be either lack of funds, difficulty to find the apt personnel or the belief that such a position is not necessary in the company. Cyber security is a fast-growing field with numerous job opportunities available but not enough persons to acquire those positions. It is difficult to overcome the funding issues without proper planning and justification, so the organizations must identify such areas and determine if funding could be allocated for the security position.
People are considered as an asset as well a vulnerability and the vulnerabilities rise when there are not enough people to do the job and it is a risk to the organization as well. A good security program needs human intelligence and actions to stay away from cybersecurity threats.
vCISO does as much program as you permit them. This means to identify your security goals and determine where the virtual CISO resource sets in your organization. It includes chairing a Steering Committee, checking various security frameworks, create a good working policy etc.
