Why does your business need a Virtual CISO?

Businesses with a CISO in place recorded the highest confidence in their security stance, optimization, and clarity. For small to mid-sized companies, it may be difficult to justify the expense of a full-time VISO; recruitment can also be a real challenge; getting an individual with the level of experience to be an effective VISO and a team to implement security technologies could be costly. 

Security strategies work best when they are risk-based and objective-driven. Rather than ongoing engagements with little or no progress, Risk Cognizance will work with you to set a sensible roadmap of security objectives and predictably work through them over time.

  • Certified Information Security Manager (CISM)

  • Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)
