Can’t Afford to Hire a Full-Time CISO? Then Rent One
Challenged by rising cybersecurity threats and a deficit of qualified security leaders, many organizations are now opting for “CISO as a service” – virtual CISOs who will step in and provide critical strategic leadership. In some cases, the virtual CISOs are short-term to fill a tactical need. Other times they sign long-term contracts to, say, develop a security road map for an organization. Whatever the end goal, for organizations that cannot find or afford a full-time CISO, the virtual leader fills a vital security gap.
