THE LONE virtual ciso vs. a virtual ciso firm

First Factory, a near-shore software development company, engages with clients in staff augmentation projects. Their clients expect them to follow many of their cybersecurity practices, and occasionally, First Factory even controls infrastructure and environments for a project. First Factory has found that utilizing a Virtual CISO firm like Fractional CISO has resulted in better service than what a lone vCISO was capable of providing. 

1First Factory used Fractional CISO's custom approach to help solve unique security challenges.

2Cybersecurity questionnaires are made easier and used to drive security improvements.

3First Factory is well-positioned to become SOC 2 compliant when necessary.
