The cost of adding a full-time Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) can far exceed the budgets of many small and midsized businesses (SMBs). However, many SMBs don’t require a full-time security leadership position; part-time experienced guidance is all that is needed. That’s where a Virtual CISO can help SMBs.
I have over thirty years of experience in information technology and security, with over twelve at the CISO level. I was Metro Nashville’s first CISO (2010), and currently am Principal for a virtual CISO firm, vCISO Services, LLC, located in Franklin, TN. I have been or currently am in the CISO role for many industries, including healthcare, finance, higher education, government, SaaS, and IaaS. I am a current CISSP and am OpenFAIR certified.
If you’re interested in engaging a highly experienced CISO, entrepreneur, and business executive to provide specialized, strategic information security planning (such as creation or evaluation of your organization’s information security strategic plan) or other executive consultation (such as interacting with the Board of Directors), please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me directly at (615) 807-0578 for more information. Consultations are always free.
