Risk Nothing. Get the Security Expertise You Need To Protect Your Data and Business.

Organizations big and small continue to fall victim to cybercrime. IT security and data management experts agree that the increased sophistication of attacks is making it extremely challenging for companies to manage their security postures. This is true across all industries but especially education, healthcare, government, and manufacturing – industries hardest hit in 2020.

Many organizations are challenged in finding and affording cybersecurity expertise. The result is poor understanding of security vulnerabilities, mediocre strategies, and cobbled-together point products and solutions. Increasingly, organizations are leveraging the deep expertise of virtual chief information security officers (vCISOs) to gain peace of mind.

Mindsight’s vCISO delivers security expertise at an affordable price – giving emerging and midmarket companies the deep security knowledge, processes and protection they need. With credentials that include CISSP, CCIE, OSINT, as well as certified ethical hacker and social engineer designations, our vCISO becomes a trusted extension of your IT team.

Mindsight’s Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service was developed to empower leaders with the cybersecurity guidance they need to better protect their organizations. This service augments cybersecurity skills gaps by providing on-demand direction, planning, implementation, and maintenance – extending your network of expertise to help navigate today’s complex and growing threat landscape.

Mindsight Expertise – When You Need It

Our team of experts is highly credentialed, averaging 15 years of multinational experience across the security spectrum – from certified ethical hackers to social engineers to CCIE R&S certified professionals. Our team has consulted for enterprise and midmarket organizations across a multitude of industries – from education to manufacturing, government to healthcare, financial services to insurance, just to name a few.

Our Approach – Proven and Trusted

Our approach begins with a qualitative and quantitative assessment of your existing security program to identify strengths and weaknesses. We perform an impact analysis to determine the financial implications to your organization if a breach were to occur. An intimate understanding of your company, combined with a data-driven approach helps us develop a thorough plan that aligns to your business objectives, improves your security posture and addresses your compliance requirements. Our team can manage your security program on an ongoing basis as well, including conducting routine reviews, scans, simulations, training and testing. Mindsight’s vCISO can be as involved as needed in each of these critical steps – one of the many benefits of having a virtual, on-demand security expert on your team.

Benefits of Mindsight’s vCISO
