Virtual CISO (vCISO) Service

Nexor’s virtual CISO (vCISO) service provides you with the expertise of a Chief Information Security Officer at a fraction of the cost of hiring someone into a permanent role. A virtual CISO gives you access to our security management knowledge, built up over 20 years as leading UK cyber security innovators.

Our vCISO service includes ongoing risk assessments, employee training and a proactive approach to risk management and response. Contact us today to see how it could work for your business.


What is a Virtual CISO?

vCISO stands for Virtual Chief Information Security Officer. It gives businesses access to on-demand cyber security expertise without requiring them to hire a permanent CISO. It is an ideal solution for smaller businesses or for those who can’t find a suitable CISO candidate.


What does a vCISO service provide?

Nexor’s virtual CISO (vCISO) service provides organisations with all the security management services they need to stay secure. Nexor’s service is subscription-based, with on-demand security advice that covers a broad range of topics.

When working with our security consultants, your organisation will benefit from our years of expertise and knowledge of the latest developments in cyber security. We will guide your security improvement program with board-level expertise.


What are the benefits of a vCISO?

The goal of our vCISOs, as with all other services under our CyberShield Secure umbrella, is to ensure that your business is able to stay secure – at the same time as meeting critical business goals.

The benefits of a vCISO include:

  1. Ongoing risk assessments and analysis to ensure that your business is protected against the latest threats.
  2. Training procedures and processes will be put in place to ensure that other members of your team have the knowledge they need to maintain security in their areas of responsibility.
  3. The impact that it can have across your organisation over a long period of time.


Why is Nexor’s vCISO Service Unique?

A proactive approach to risk management and response

At Nexor, we understand that every business is unique. Therefore, our vCISO service will be tailored to your specific needs. We approach each challenge by understanding the threats and risks the business faces, looking for gaps in current security controls and supporting the implementation of a security improvement programme.

Our proactive approach encompasses the full security lifecycle; planning, implementing and monitoring security controls to minimise the risk of security incidents and ensure you are well prepared to manage them should they occur.

We recognise security is the combination of people, processes and technology, and help organisations identify an appropriate balance based on their individual needs.

Think Secure

This service will provide long term benefits to your business by improving the baseline security controls in place, specifically designed according to your business needs. This will give the board and senior management confidence that security is being managed, compliance requirements are met, and customer concerns addressed.

At Nexor, our consultancy services are underpinned by our CyberShield Secure agile methodology. It closely follows ISO 9001/27001 and ITIL processes that ensure objectives are defined and that successful outcomes are measurable, whilst keeping a business’s digital transformation objectives at the heart of any solutions we implement.
