Fractional CISO was founded to fill the gap for medium-sized companies that don’t have a CISO.
After working at multiple SaaS / IoT companies where he was in charge of the cybersecurity program in addition to his other duties, founder Rob Black figured, “Why don’t I do this for EVERY medium sized company? They all need this!”
In June 2017, Rob pulled the trigger, quit his job, and Fractional CISO was born.
Two months later, Fractional CISO had a few clients and was on a path to helping many more.
Today we have five full-time employees assisting many medium-sized SaaS, finance, consulting, life science and manufacturing companies.
We enable our clients’ sales, reduce their risk and help them comply with cybersecurity standards by providing expert cybersecurity advice.
Are your large customers and prospects demanding that you improve your cybersecurity program? Many of our clients are in the same boat.
We assess your organization, build a plan and help you execute toward the plan.
Do we solve other cybersecurity problems? Of course. Enabling sales, however, is the number one reason why clients sign with us.
Fractional CISO helps clients establish and maintain their cybersecurity program by providing technical and gap assessments, risk assessments, plans, policies, procedures, and program and project management. For clients using AWS, Azure or GCP to host their solutions and products, we review their access controls, backups, monitoring solutions and other technical controls to help them minimize their cybersecurity risk.
We also help organizations successfully complete and maintain various standards, certifications and attestations such as SOC 2, ISO 27001, ISO 27017, HIPAA, NIST 800-171, NIST 800-53, CIS Controls, Privacy Shield, PCI DSS and many others.
There are four factors that differentiate Fractional CISO from others in the marketplace:
Having a clear understanding of the services we don’t provide allows us to focus on the stuff that we’re really good at.
Here is a list of some things Fractional CISO does not do:
Fractional CISO provides Virtual CISOs to organizations, helping its customers reduce their cybersecurity risk. Fractional CISO’s Virtual CISOs establish and maintain clients’ cybersecurity programs, policies and procedures, manage technical staff, perform gap and risk assessments, and manage compliance.
Fractional CISO helps organizations make better cybersecurity decisions.
