Everything you need to know about using the vCISO service.

A Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is responsible for developing and maintaining a company’s cyber security strategy, including ensuring data asset security, implementing policies, and planning training. A virtual CISO (vCISO) is an outsourced expert who provides all the benefits of an on-premise CISO but without all the costs to hire and train someone full-time.  



Field Effect’s vCISO service offers access to industry-leading cyber security experts at a fraction of what you’d pay to hire and onboard an in-house CISO. Choose from one of our prebuilt packages or customize your own service bundle — either way you’re sure to find a solution that fits your business and your budget. 




A vCISO develops cyber security policies, standards, and procedures that fit your business. They provide direction to information security teams or offer strategic insight to executives, boards, investors, and government agencies. Field Effect’s vCISO service offers risk assessment and compliance management audits, online employee training, and security breach support.
