What is a vCISO?
A vCISO is a virtual Chief Information Security Officer. This is a highly-trained cybersecurity expert contracted by an organization to handle their IT security and compliance programs.
The main reason a company might hire a virtual CISO is because they can’t afford to bring in a full-time person or they can’t find a qualified candidate as these positions are currently in such high demand.
About Critical Insight
Critical Insight is the only cybersecurity-as-a-service provider that prepares, monitors and responds to cyber threats, going beyond SOC-as-a-service offerings typical of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offerings.
With a focus on organizations that deliver critical services – hospitals, local governments, utilities, school systems, and more – we provide end-to-end support to those with limited security teams or budgets to handle threats proactively and as they occur.
Based in Bremerton and Seattle, Washington, Critical Insight is a venture-backed company founded by former CISOs in the public sector. We are committed to training new analysts and providing the most up-to-date cybersecurity protection.
