Our virtual chief information security officer – VCISO – is an automated service that produces in-depth compliance reports and helps your organization generate your full information security plan.

Oversees Reporting

Benefits of a VCISO

Having a 'virtual' Chief Information Security Officer under contract with Red Piranha 'as-a-service' gives you a point person looking after your organization's security, compliance and continuity interests. Backing up the VCISO is a whole team of experts at Red Piranha acting in alignment with the VCISO to support the needs of your organization

Cost Effective

Top InfoSec talent demands an extensive amount of salary. Red Piranha's VCISO services can often cost less than 25% of a CISO’s salary. Under our solution, you pay only for what you need, whether it’s just expert advice to grow the skills of your current staff or an end-to-end managed service.

Better Resource Allocation

A full-time CISO is one individual who must rely on their education, experience, and ability to track threats on a global basis as they evolve and apply that knowledge to your systems. A solution provided by Red Piranha's VCISO gives you a point person and an entire team of experts supporting them. For a fraction of the cost of a full-time CISO you get a team's worth of knowledge, access to our active threat intelligence knowledge and you pay for only what you need, when you need it. A CISO on the payroll is an ongoing expense.

Do you have an intellectual property attorney on staff?

Probably not as this is a specialized job role. It does not make sense to have one on staff full time - but you would hire their services in protecting your enterprises' intellectual property. Our Virtual Chief Information Security Officer is the same exact concept except instead of protecting your intellectual property against theft and misuse, Red Piranha's VCISO protects your data, ensures you are in compliance and builds continuity planning.

Are you in compliance with all security requirements?

If you are questioning if you are or aren't, you need the services of a VCISO to make sure.

The laws have some very specific requirements that make directors personally liable if their organization is not in compliance. Directors are held liable, under the law, so you need to pay careful attention to this. Being in compliance takes effort, constant updating of your systems and an expert who knows how to build and document the systems that meet the needs mandated by the law. Don't wait until it's too late and an incident has made you liable. Get the protection now that safeguards your data, your business's reputation and the liability of your organization and director.

Do you have an active security plan in place that covers all modern threat contingencies and has a built-in continuity plan?

If you do not have active security plans that are frequently updated to meet evolving threats, you are at high-risk of an incident. The protections safeguarding your company, the plan for handling incidents, breaches, data loss, and continuance are all vital to your company. Your security planning, technology, and responses to threats must be actively updated as it outlined in Australian compliance requirements.
