Chief Information Security Officers (CISO’s) are becoming highly sought after, and with that demand comes increasing cost, often unattainable for small to medium sized businesses.
This is where the benefits of hiring a virtual CISO become evident - All the skills and knowledge, without the liability and expense of an additional employee.
A Dangerous Knowledge Gap
Unfortunately, not having someone oversee your company’s cyber security can leave a knowledge gap relating to both mandatory compliance regulations as well as security holes in your business.
With such a gap, the company and its director(s) can be left open to liability putting both your businesses information and reputation, as well as valuable client data at risk being accessible to cyber-criminals.
An Affordable Alternative
Red Piranha’s contracted virtual CISO provides an affordable, reliable service to Australian companies.
We have fully qualified in-house, expert Chief Information Security Officers who can be contracted to review your company’s security needs. Identifying gaps within your infrastructure and implementing the necessary changes to help bring your organisation into compliance to align with the complex regulatory environment resulting from recent legislation.
If your business has an annual turnover in excess of $3million AUD laws such as the ‘Australian Privacy Principles (APP) amendments to the Privacy Act 1988’ are applicable and must be met.
Enterprise Directors Are Liable
Ultimately the liability for compliance in relation to all data protection, security and privacy acts sits with company directors and increasingly they are being held accountable.

We can also assist with any staff training and education that may be required.
