Your Cybersecurity Team.

None of your cyber challenges are insurmountable! Our world-class Virtual CISOs will help you build your cybersecurity program, so you can build your product and company.

Your Virtual CISO-led cybersecurity team will build a custom, risk-optimized cybersecurity program to manage risk, meet compliance goals, and enable your growth.

Virtual CISO leadership you can rely on.

Fractional CISO’s Virtual CISOs (vCISO) play the same role in your organization that a full-time CISO does. We give your organization the capability to evaluate its product and corporate security posture. Design, implement, and manage your ongoing cybersecurity program. Achieve compliance and regulatory success. Your vCISO can even provide cybersecurity input to your board of directors! Fractional CISO grants your organization the expertise needed to develop your GRC program to match and support your business plans for years to come.

Cybersecurity Projects

Our vCISOs can complete a number of cybersecurity projects on your behalf. We commonly perform risk assessments, internal audits, and due diligence evaluations.

Program Management

A part-time vCISO provides full-time cybersecurity benefits. Plan, implement, and manage a custom cybersecurity program suited to your organization’s unique needs.

Cybersecurity Compliance

SOC 2, ISO 27001, PCI DSS, TX-RAMP – you name it, our Virtual CISOs have done it! With Fractional CISO, you can rest easy. Our clients have never failed a cyersecurity compliance audit.

THE STAKES

Over 56% of cyber attacks involve the supply chain.

Bad guys know the easiest way to a company’s data is often through their vendors, so organizations now expect those vendors to do everything possible to protect their data.

And the burden of proof is on the provider: cybersecurity questionnaires, compliance, and regulations – SOC 2, PCI DSS, TX-RAMP, HIPAA, and more – all ways to prove that a vendor has trustworthy cybersecurity.

If you are a B2B vendor, you’re likely feeling the strain. GRC projects take valuable time away from high-ranking employees. You have your own cybersecurity risks to manage. Full-time CISOs are expensive to hire and hard to retain.

THE FRACTIONAL CISO DIFFERENCE

Team Approach

With the stroke of your e-signature, you’ll add decades of cumulative cybersecurity experience to your company’s org chart. Your cybersecurity program will be managed by a team of experts led by a CISSP-certified Virtual CISO and supported by one or more cybersecurity analysts.

Our team approach ensures that your cybersecurity team will always be available – you don’t lose access to your vCISO just because they go on vacation! Plus, different Fractional CISO personnel have different specializations. They will be tapped to help you with their domain of expertise as needed.

Customized Programs

What’s the best cybersecurity program? The answer is simple…
 
It depends!
 

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to cybersecurity. We tailor your program to your firm’s unique needs. A difference as simple as being a Google Workspace or Microsoft 365 shop can impact what controls are best. We consider these topics when helping your organization.

Quantitative Methodology

What do “high,” “medium,” and “low,” mean anyways?
 
When it comes to informing strategic decisions, qualitative metrics are mediocre at best and misleading at worst.
 

We speak the language of business – dollars and probabilities – not the “highs” and “lows” of traditional cybersecurity providers. Our proprietary QuantiShield™ Quantitative Risk Assessment makes it easier to prioritize cyber risk treatment, increasing the efficiency of your cybersecurity spend.

Is your Cyber Insurance really going to cover you?

Only 1/3 of cyber insurance policies actually pay out in incidents. Most companies have cyber insurance policies that insure too little, or too much, and have absurdly low caps and silly exclusions.

To learn more about cyber insurance and determine if you have the right coverage for you, join us for a free vCISO Office Hours session on Tuesday, April 18 at 1 p.m. eastern time. Bring your questions!
