What is Virtual CISO?
Virtual CISO (Virtual Chief Information Security Officer) is designed for organizations that need someone to take responsibility for the growth of the information security program but don’t need a full-time, W2 CISO. Hiring a CISO is expensive, FRSecure provides everything you need at a fraction of the cost.
What's included in Virtual CISO?
With Virtual CISO, any security service FRSecure offers is immediately available to you. Typically organizations engage FRSecure’s VCISO to add security expertise and guidance to their team, either on their security steering committee, IT steering committee, or similar.
FRSecure’s VCISO can include as little as a few hours per month of guidance. It is a perfect way for organizations to keep security professionals engaged with their team without the cost of hiring a security employee.
Once in our VCISO program, you have immediate, discounted access to any service FRSecure offers, including (but not limited to):
- Information security leadership and guidance
- Steering committee leadership or participation

- And much, much more.
How much does Virtual CISO cost?
Virtual CISO is typically done as a retainer. There are multiple factors that go into the dollar amount, but it is always a fraction of the cost of hiring a CISO. Typically, FRSecure clients realize 75-80% savings over hiring a full-time CISO, and because they are getting a dedicated resource with access to an entire security team they get a lot more for their money.
