Why you need a vCISO
Many organizations lack in-house cybersecurity expertise and budget. These organizations often do not have dedicated cybersecurity professionals to assess and manage cyber risks effectively. Additionally, limited budget allocation poses a significant constraint in implementing robust security measures. The absence of specialized knowledge and financial resources hampers their ability to stay updated with evolving threats and comply with industry regulations. Consequently, these organizations become more vulnerable to cyber attacks and struggle to safeguard critical data.
Lack of in-house cybersecurity expertise and budget leads to
Increased Vulnerability to Cyber Attacks
Non-compliance with Industry Regulations
Inadequate Protection of Customer Data
Higher Risk of Financial Losses
Limited Capacity for Incident Response and Recovery
Partner with DruvStar's vCISO service addresses these challenges by providing specialized expertise, cost-effective solutions, and guidance to meet compliance requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions
A vCISO is a virtual Chief Information Security Officer, who provides cybersecurity services to an organization on a part-time, temporary, or contractual basis. A vCISO can help an organization develop and implement a cybersecurity strategy, manage security risks, ensure compliance with regulations, and respond to incidents.
A CISO is a Chief Information Security Officer, who is a full-time, in-house executive responsible for overseeing the cybersecurity function of an organization. A CISO leads the security team, sets the security vision and policies, coordinates security operations, and reports to the board or senior management. A vCISO has the same role but for more than one company, i.e. they are not a full-time employee. A vCISO may have a more limited scope of responsibilities and involvement, depending on the organization's needs and expectations.
An organization may need a vCISO for various reasons, such as:
Cost-effectiveness: Hiring a full-time CISO can be a significant investment for an organization, especially for small and mid-sized businesses. A CISO may demand a high compensation package that includes salary, benefits, stock options, and bonuses. On the other hand, hiring a vCISO can be a more economical and flexible option. A vCISO may charge a reasonable fee that reflects the level of expertise and services provided.
Expertise: A vCISO can bring a wealth of expertise and skills that may not be available within an organization. A vCISO can draw from their experience of working with multiple clients in different industries and sizes to provide best practices and solutions for an organization’s specific needs and goals.
Flexibility: A vCISO can offer more flexibility and scalability than a CISO. A vCISO can be hired on demand, for a specific project or period of time, or as an ongoing service. A vCISO can also adjust their level of involvement and scope of responsibilities according to the organization’s changing needs and expectations.
A vCISO typically works with an organization remotely, using various communication tools and platforms to collaborate with the organization's stakeholders and security team. A vCISO may also visit the organization's site occasionally for meetings or audits. A vCISO usually starts by conducting an assessment of the organization's current security posture, identifying gaps and risks, and providing recommendations for improvement. A vCISO then helps the organization develop and implement a security strategy that aligns with its business objectives and regulatory requirements. A vCISO may also provide ongoing support and guidance for security operations, incident response, compliance management, training and awareness, and reporting.
Cyber attacks are a major concern for organizations of all sizes due to the ever-growing dependence on technology and the internet. To be prepared for any potential cyber threats, businesses should use a human-implemented cyber attack emulation as a proactive measure. The primary objective of such emulations are to assess the organization’s ability to detect, respond to, and recover from a cyber attack.
