Leverage our expertise to help your business or organization develop an effective security program.

Virtual chief information security officer (vCISO) services enable businesses without an in-house officer to secure sensitive data and manage information technology (IT) risk cost-effectively. Virtual CISOs comprehensively assess a company's security posture to identify weaknesses and maximize security standing over the long term. They accomplish these tasks by delivering highly qualified information security expertise on demand instead of the company filling a dedicated full-time position.

US Signal offers vCISO services that range from overseeing the execution of daily security tasks to executive-level planning and guidance, including customized strategies and processes based on your organization's unique requirements. Our team offers this feature for one-off projects, on-demand or continuously for however long you need.

US Signal has years of experience helping organizations develop, implement and maintain effective information security programs through our outsourced vCISO services. Your organization can hire our virtual information security officer to support an existing position or assume all the roles and responsibilities of a chief information security officer, regardless of the company's size.

  • Perform information security audits.

Industries That Benefit From Virtual CISO Services

While larger businesses have used in-house CISOs for years, many smaller and medium-sized organizations benefit significantly from virtual officers, especially as many companies migrate to the cloud. With cyberattack risk increasing for all businesses, virtual CISOs work well for the most vulnerable companies without comprehensive levels of protection.

Businesses like banks, credit unions and insurance companies in the financial services industry benefit from virtual CISOs because of regulations in the payment card industry. Healthcare organizations such as clinics, hospitals and home care providers capitalize on a vCISO's extensive knowledge to comply with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements. Similarly, smaller colleges and universities rely on these services to ensure data quality and safeguard privacy for students, professors and administrative staff.

Examples of other industries that benefit from vCISO services include manufacturing, retail, hospitality, utilities and technology.
