Bridge the cyber security knowledge gap with an on-demand expert
In the face of a global talent shortage, recruiting a dedicated professional with the knowledge and leadership required to prepare and execute a successful cyber security strategy is time-consuming, expensive and often simply not viable.
Redscan’s Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service enables your organisation to call upon a highly-qualified and experienced security professional as and when required. By acting as an extension of in-house resources and fully understanding business needs and strategy, a Redscan Virtual CISO can help to assess cyber-risk plus develop and implement the policies, procedures and controls needed to strengthen defences and achieve compliance standards.
66% of UK companies lack the security staff to meet their needs.
