Our Virtual CISO Services Include:

Data Classification

We’ll help you classify your data so you can properly prioritize it in your incident response plans and disaster recovery/business continuity plans. Organizing your data into broad categories can also help you use it more efficiently throughout your day-to-day business workflows.

Data Loss Prevention

Whether by accident, random failures, or malicious attacks, there is always a risk of losing vital business data. Data loss prevention plans help you prepare for mishaps so you can carry on like normal. Our data loss prevention implementation service helps you keep your data safe and intact for when you need it.

Vendor Contracts and Risk Management

Our VCISO service can analyze your existing vendor contracts to identify potential risks so you can mitigate them more effectively. We can also provide assessments for future contracts from a cyber risk management perspective to help meet key compliance initiative standards.

Identity and Access Management

We can help you establish an optimized identity and access management (IAM) system using either your existing security tools or new ones. This IAM system optimization can help you increase user account security throughout your organization without significantly impacting your workflows.

Bring Your Own Device Policy Design

Many employees prefer to use their own personal devices for their work because they’re more comfortable with them. Our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy and policy design service helps your organization set expectations regarding the use of personal devices at work.

Privacy Program Implementation

Data privacy is a critical issue for businesses—both for their employees and their customers. Our virtual CISO team will help you with your privacy program implementation so you can better protect the information on your network without having to sacrifice user experience.

Audit Remediation and Audit Management

Security compliance audits can be an enormous hassle. Our team of expert cybersecurity engineers can help you prepare for audits in advance by identifying potential issues. Additionally, we can assist with post-audit issue remediation so you can focus on your core business.

SOC Readiness and Compliance

The American Institute of CPAs’ (AICPAs) Service Organization Control (SOC) reporting platform is a standard that all SaaS companies need to conform to. Our VCISO team can help you identify potential SOC readiness and compliance issues so you can proactively manage them.

Network Threat Assessments

We’ll help you classify your data so you can properly prioritize it in your incident response plans and disaster recovery/business continuity plans. Organizing your data into broad categories can also help you use it more efficiently throughout your day-to-day business workflows.

Information Risk Reviews and Risk Management

We can help you assess your overall information risks by identifying crucial security gaps and vulnerabilities through penetration testing, threat intelligence, and SIEM monitoring. We can then help you close these security gaps so you can minimize your risk.

Why Use Our Virtual CISO Services?

Saving Money On CISO Salary. Recruiting, onboarding, training, and maintaining an internal CISO can be prohibitively expensive. Chief-level execs are always costly, and trained cybersecurity experts know they’re worth their weight in gold. Using a virtual CISO service provides the benefits of filling the high-level security expert and strategist role for a fraction of the cost of hiring one internally.

Independent Validation of Your Security Practices. Bringing in a virtual CISO service gives you access to an outsider’s perspective of your security practices. The virtual CISO team is able to validate if your cybersecurity program design is meeting industry security standards such as ISO 27001, NIST framework, FISMA, FFIEC, and the like.

Customized Cybersecurity Program Development. The cybersecurity programs that Compuquip Cybersecurity develops are all customized to meet the specific business objectives of our clients while addressing the biggest threats they face. We don’t use a “one size fits all” cookie-cutter solution. We take the time to learn about your business, what makes it unique, and how to best protect it.
