Small to mid-sized organizations require adherence to a wide range of legal, regulatory, and contractual security essentials. However, for several reasons like high cost and limited availability of qualified resources, organizations find it hard to keep them. Most of these organizations have staff who can manage technology products but remain challenged while addressing their long-term or strategic security requirements. Hiring a full-time staff at an executive level can be an expensive option. In fact, you don’t require a full-time resource. And what you need is a trusted advisor who can provide security leadership and guidance ‘on demand’ in the form of Virtual CISO Consulting Services.
