Virtual CISO (vCISO)

Bridge the cyber security knowledge gap with an on-demand expert

In the face of a global talent shortage, recruiting a dedicated professional with the knowledge and leadership required to prepare and execute a successful cyber security strategy is time-consuming, expensive and often simply not viable

The BASHtell Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service enables your organization to call upon a highly-qualified and experienced security professional as and when required. By acting as an extension of in-house resources and fully understanding business needs and strategy, a Virtual CISO can help to assess cyber-risk plus develop and implement the policies, procedures and controls needed to strengthen defences and achieve compliance standards.

When vCISO guidance could be invaluable

Regular pen testing helps improve your cyber security by:

Achieving compliance with industry standards such as the GDPR, PCI and CMMC

Planning security checks, assessments and reviews

Developing and implementing threat management strategy

Procuring security products and services

Recruiting and training IT and security personnel

Responding to and remediating breaches
