Frequently asked questions

What is vCISO?

vCISOs are contracted information security professionals.

They provides guidance and leadership to companies on cybersecurity matters.

Unlike a full-time CISO, a vCISO works remotely and on a part-time or project basis.

What qualifications do have a vCISO?

vCISOs have extensive experience and knowledge of risk management and cyber security best practices.

They must also possess strong leadership, communication and analytical skills to effectively manage security strategy and security operations.

Many vCISOs have a background in computer science, engineering or related fields and hold relevant certifications such as CISSP, CISM or CISA.

Why do you need a vCISO?

Businesses need a vCISO to establish a strong cybersecurity posture and mitigate cyber risks.

SMEs often do not have sufficient resources to employ a full-time CISO.

The vCISO is a cost-effective alternative.

vCISO will provide expertise to the company, develop and implement comprehensive cyber security and ensure compliance with industry regulations and standards.

How much does a vCISO cost?

The cost of vCISO services depends on:

vDPOs should have a good understanding of data protection legislation and regulatory requirements.

They also need good communication skills, as they will be working with the organisation’s staff and management, as well as its oversight body.

Perhaps surprisingly, no formal qualifications are required to become a DPO.
