Virtual CISO


Most small and medium-sized businesses do not have the resources to hire a full time Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). But this doesn’t mean that they don’t have a need for one. Tectonic Security can act as your virtual CISO, integrating as a member of your executive team to assist with the implementation and management of your information security, risk management, compliance assurance, and data privacy programs. We understand that IT risk equals business risk and we work with our clients to understand their risk tolerance and business needs. Based on this information we develop appropriate plans to mitigate business risk in the most cost effective way possible.
Our virtual CISO services include:
  • Engage with executive management to provide independent and unbiased advice regarding regulatory and compliance requirements
  • Assist with the development and maintenance of a security program based on client requirements
  • Help create, manage and maintain information security policies, processes and controls
  • Assist with the development and maintenance of the business continuity and disaster recovery programs
  • Develop and deliver a security awareness training program for your organization’s management and staff
  • Help prioritize security initiatives and budgeting based on appropriate risk management techniques
