Reduce Cyber Security Risk with a vCISO

Providing an excellent security program in today’s environment with today’s resources is a challenge. At Cadre, we understand the gap between expectations and resources facing CISOs (Chief Security Officers) and other security leaders and the need to have expert partners to help close those gaps. Therefore, Cadre offers a number of solutions to assist security leaders including virtual or fractional CISO as well as consulting guidance in security leadership.

A vCISO (virtual chief information security officer) offers all the benefits of an in-house security leader with more resources at your disposal while a Fractional CISO offers the chance to “top up” your security leadership. Such CISO as-a-service programs may be exactly what your organization needs to reduce your cyber security risk and ensure top-notch information security throughout the organization, all while controlling your costs.

The vCISO can greatly extend the abilities, available time and knowledge base of the corporate security leaders. Similar to any virtual system, the service is ‘on demand’ so it can quickly scale up or down as needed and can match the needs of the organization without concern of over or under utilization of personnel.

For small and medium-sized businesses that do not have the essential position of CISO filled, the Fractional CISO provides a robust team whose service can be a good match to the specific needs and budget of that organization.

Cadre has the talent to bring the right forces to bear to address specific problems, projects and cultural change facing any organization, providing quality consultative guidance and implementation. With the serious talent shortage in cybersecurity, Cadre’s CISO Services can help organizations find the most effective use of their dollars while greatly enhancing business continuity and institutional knowledge.

Reduced Cost: Full-time skilled security experts are pricey. Augment your security talent for a fraction of the cost with a vCISO.

Team Knowledge and Experience: The Cadre vCISO team has more knowledge and overall experience than any one person is likely to achieve in their entire career. This expertise includes, but is not limited to, cybersecurity, directory services, compliance, control design/implementation, business continuity and business practices.

Market Demand: Experts are in high demand and finding candidates is becoming more difficult every day. Industry trends predict this will continue for years to come. A vCISO service can greatly lessen the impact of CISO recruitment time, costs and the impact of turnover or promotion.

Immediacy: If you have an immediate need to ensure you are meeting compliance standards, a vCISO team will be ready to hit the ground running. Training and compliance certification of in-house CISOs can be slow, costly and disruptive to the other duties of the CISO.

Scalability: vCISO services from Cadre provide experienced experts not only when you need them but also to the extent you need them.

Cadre's vCISO (Virtual CISO) offering is meant to be flexible in order to meet the needs of each of our clients. Engagements typically follow a cycle of assess, plan and remediate.

Whether you need high level guidance on a monthly or quarterly basis or need hands-on help several days per week, our vCISO’s will be able to build a solution for you.




Technology can be complicated. Our goal is to simplify the business of security.
