Retained / Virtual CISO Services

Technology is evolving faster than businesses can keep up. Malicious code, ransomware, and phishing attacks are becoming more popular as the preferred attack type by hackers and threat actors. However, in the absence of a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), organizations are falling behind in their defense and awareness against these pervasive attacks because of a variety of challenges, including resources, expertise, and time.
