As cyber criminals expand their assaults to take advantage of COVID-19 fears, cybersecurity teams are challenged to keep pace with the new threats. These expanded threats create significant new risks, especially for small and mid-size organizations that do not have dedicated cybersecurity resources or a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). During unprecedented times, these organizations may consider improving their cybersecurity posture with the assistance of a Virtual CISO.
Join us for an expert-panel webinar that will examine the potential advantages of utilizing a vCISO. Recommendations will be provided from both the vCISO and client perspectives.
