What exactly does SOC 2 require?

SOC 2 requires companies to establish and follow strict information security policies and procedures, encompassing the security, availability, processing, integrity, and confidentiality of customer data.

When do you know you need a vCISO?

Unable to afford a full time CISO 

Hiring a full-time CISO can be extremely expensive. Many CISOs cost over $200k when factoring salary and benefits, which is often too expensive for many small and medium organizations. By hiring a vCISO, you pay only for what you need. This may include a few hours per month, or a few hours per week.  

Unsure where to start with risk mitigation 

To remain defensible, security has quickly become a core function of business. Security risks are not limited only to technology. Mitigating risk properly requires extending attention to vendor management, policies and procedures, and corporate culture. The security landscape is rapidly changing, thus requiring constant identification, prioritization, and mitigation of these threats.  

Need assistance with compliance requirements 

Whether you are adopting a new security framework, or maintaining current compliance, our vCISO will help you navigate the compliance requirements. This includes documenting current security controls, identifying gaps in current controls, and planning a way forward.
