Quantum's Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (QvCISO) Services can help guide your company towards effective cybersecurity.
What is a vCISO?
Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) is a natural evolution from the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) role. A vCISO is a subscription based, contracted executive in contrast to a CISO, which traditionally has been a full-time executive that warrants all of the associated and costly overhead. Like CISO's, vCISO’s are responsible for establishing cybersecurity strategy while minimizing risks to data assets but at a substantial cost savings. Quantum Vigilance’s vCISO's (QvCISO) will act as a conduit between information technology (IT), compliance and regulatory (legal) departments, and your executives. A QvCISO will always speak to each role (IT, legal, and executive) in language that is concise and appropriate to your organization.
Why does your organization need a vCISO?
Our world is more digital than ever and continues to grow. In fact, 90% of the world’s data was created in just the last two years (1). Traditional non-tech companies are embracing technology at breakneck speed. And while these transitioning companies are profiting from their advances, they are also exposed to new threats. During the COVID-19 pandemic alone, the FBI reported a 300% increase in cybercrimes (2). Coupled with the complex regulatory and compliance requirements associated with protecting data, companies traveling at breakneck speeds may crash. A QvCISO can help your company continue to travel at maximum velocity while minimizing your exposure to these very dangers. A QvCISO will determine your company’s risk profile and work with you to create an effective cybersecurity roadmap that maximizes your growth potential in a way that your entire organization can understand and embrace.
How does a vCISO add value to your organization?
The benefits and flexibility of a vCISO can provide real, dollar and cents value to your organization. According to a Heidrick & Struggles 2020 survey, full time CISO’s command a median $326k annual salary, median bonus package of $96k and leave an organization within 4 years (3). By avoiding the hassles of vetting, onboarding, retaining and paying a full time CISO – something far too many startups and SMBs just can’t afford, contracting a vCISO for your particular situation saves the bottom line and permits you to reallocate financial resources to where it matters most – growing your business.
