Looking for a chief information security officer? Why a vCISO is the better option
Cybersecurity has become an essential business function to help companies build operational resilience and manage risk. It’s no longer an activity that can happen once a year — you need a sustainable and constantly evolving program. And, when situations come up that need specialized expertise, like handling a data breach, you need to have someone who has “been there, done that.”
What’s more, some industries are required by regulations to have a qualified individual designated as the company’s chief information security officer (CISO). But most companies don’t have the need to have a qualified CISO on staff all the time.
That’s what makes a virtual chief information security officer (vCISO) the ideal option for many organizations. But what is a vCISO?
In this webinar, Jeff Olejnik, principal and leader of Wipfli’s cybersecurity practice, and Eric Onderdonk, a senior manager in Wipfli’s digital services practice, discussed:
- The role and expectations of a CISO versus a vCISO
- Your options for fulfilling the role of CISO
- How to evaluate whether a fractional vCISO model is appropriate
- How to improve security awareness with a sustainable security program versus ad hoc with proper oversight
