Role of a vCISO in an organization
Today, when almost everything is connected to the internet and so much information is shared at an express speed, every business is at risk of cyberattacks. And, as part of its cybersecurity journey, it needs to have senior leadership to govern and lead its information security program to protect the information at all levels and achieve the desired level of cybersecurity maturity.
While large organizations enjoy a large team and are led by in-house CISOs, things are difficult for small organizations. Hiring a senior security leader could be a big challenge for small and medium businesses due to financial implications and lack of security org structure within the organization.
