vCISO

Improve your business’ security posture using a virtual CISO.

What Is A vCISO:

A virtual chief information security officer is an outsourced information security specialist that aids your organisation in enhancing its security posture. These individuals use their wealth of security expertise to provide a range of services which support your business in planning and executing effective cybersecurity strategies. The impartial nature of these outsourced individuals means that they will act as an extension of your business to offer unbiased cybersecurity expertise, strategies, and assessments.

Virtual CISOs work on a retainer basis to support your business’ specific operations, meaning that the scope of their role will be defined by your needs. Depending on these needs, a vCISO will be able to assist in:

How a vCISO Service Works:

Mondas’ vCISO representatives provide a huge range of information security capabilities. They will work as an extension of your organisation to upholster your current cyber strategies, and implement enhanced processes and protections. To do so, they will undertake the following process:

Assessing:
Our vCISO will contextualise their job within your current organisational processes and protections. They will do this by interviewing your key stakeholders and reviewing your existing documentation to assess your security controls, strategies, and technical capabilities. This will help to ensure that our vCISO has a deep understanding of your business’ aspirations and vulnerabilities, and is well positioned to bolster your cyber security.

Strategising:
Our vCISO will then create a security roadmap for your organisation. This will contain advice and recommendations on how to improve your cybersecurity posture, and remediate any vulnerabilities identified in your business. This strategy will be created in line with any budgets, timeframes, and objectives outlined by your organisation.

Operationalising and Monitoring:
Our vCISO will assist you in implementing your cybersecurity roadmap, and engage in the areas of your business earmarked for support. The outcomes of your new strategy will be monitored and reported on, and your overall security posture will be assessed.

Evaluating and Improving:
Our vCISO will evaluate your new cybersecurity strategies to ensure that they are effectively remediating any vulnerabilities, and meeting your compliance and policy requirements. The outcomes will also be evaluated against your wider business goals. Where room for improvement is identified, the appropriate changes will be strategised and implemented.
