Pivotalogic's Virtual CISO (vCISO) service makes industry-leading expertise available to organizations of all sizes. Serving as an extension of your team, your vCISO will either start your information security program from scratch or build upon what you already have. Assessing where you are today is essential for identifying your organization's risks and vulnerabilities that have the biggest impact on your organization.

Your vCISO then addresses your risks by reviewing your existing or future Security Risk Assessment and working with leadership to gain insight into organizational objectives, budget, and internal capacity. Your vCISO then develops a strategic roadmap to reduce your risk in the most effective and efficient way possible. Lastly, your vCISO reports on improvement over time through our Security Risk Score and then repeat the process; continually assessing new risks, addressing them with your team's input, and making improvements to ensure you are never caught off guard and always ahead of evolving threats.

Virtual CISO FAQs

How does a Pivotalogic Virtual CISO client engagement work?

Every Pivotalogic Virtual CISO engagement follows our simple and proven process, the Pivotalogic Continuous Improvement Model (PCIM).

Step 1:

Assess – Knowing where you are today is essential for identifying the risks and vulnerabilities that have the biggest impact on your organization. In this phase your Virtual CISO will conduct a risk assessment and get acclimated to your organization. This will help them to understand the business objectives, information security budget, internal resources, and critical business functions. This time gives the Virtual CISO a great foundation to start when developing your information security roadmap.

Step 2:

Address – This is where the rubber meets the road. Based on findings and observations from assessing your organization your virtual CISO has now developed a detailed roadmap of what gaps and vulnerabilities need to be addressed right now, what can be done at a later date, who will do the work, and when the work will start and when it will be completed.

Step 3:

Improve – See the fruits of your labor, your Virtual CISO creates reports of the progress that has been made. This progress is quantified by our easy to understand Security Risk Score (SRS). This score now can be shared with C-suite executives to report on the progress, show the return on investment (ROI), and gain buy in for future information security improvements.
