Information security incidents and data breaches over the past few years have led to organizations facing aggregate information security legal, regulatory, and contractual requirements to protect themselves and the data they accept, process, transmit and/or store. Our virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) is designed to help organizations establish and improve their information security posture to support their business needs and requirements. The vCISO service is intended to provide expertise associated with information security practitioners, including but not limited to providing:
Alignment with business needs and recommendations to help the organization:
Leadership by providing actionable cybersecurity strategy, governance, and operations management.
Program development by empowering organizations with knowledge and tools to help them establish and improve an Information Security Program that aligns with their business needs.
Marber Security will help provide security alignment, leadership, and program development. The vCISO service provides access to certified and experienced security practitioners that can provide alignment, leadership, and program development.
To provide information security strategic and governance leadership, new vCISO engagements start with an Organizational review and a SCF 50 - Basic Security Assessment that lets us learn about your organizational needs and requirements. In this stage, clients share their current business, IT, and cybersecurity initiatives; areas of concern that require attention, and any known compliance, regulatory, or contractual information security requirements. Partnered with Marber Security, the client will collaboratively define a target security posture.
An effective engagement and partnership require regular interaction with your organization’s senior IT staff and with senior management. In the process of delivering our services, we encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns at vCISO@marbersecurity.com or at (833) 231-7087 x1.
