WayPath Consulting is a boutique consultancy specialized in improving the customer experience of large enterprises.

WayPath serves Fortune 1000 businesses, which are becoming increasingly selective on vendor security. WayPath recognized the need to create a comprehensive security program and become AICPA SOC 2 Compliant to meet the growing market demand for secure vendors, but didn’t want to sacrifice other projects it was working on. WayPath chose Fractional CISO’s Virtual CISO services to help manage and direct these new cybersecurity endeavors.
