SecurPath vCISO Helps Build a Comprehensive Security Program Capability for Your Organization

The benefits of a SecurPath vCISO help secure your business data and brand reputation. The costs of downtime, corrupt or missing data, lost productivity, lost revenue, and damaged brand reputation can be crippling to organizations with poor cybersecurity risk management. These risks have compounded in recent years as the threat landscape has expanded. As a result, the need for improved vCISO programs has grown.

Building an effective cybersecurity framework is challenging. It starts with staffing the myriad of skills/roles required to design, build, and manage a quality information security program. These resources are scarce, expensive, and are often only needed on a fractional basis. The second challenge is building and executing a process to drive security improvement and remain vigilant over time as the threat landscape and business change. Lastly, the supporting security technology infrastructure and non-technical program components must be designed and implemented to maximize outcomes while minimizing cost.
