Posted by Susan Sison on Aug 7, 2017 9:22:46 AM

BELLEVUE, WA, August 7, 2017—Experts agree it has never been more important for enterprises to have robust information security measures. Businesses of all sizes find themselves under attack by a growing spectrum of cybercriminal activities that can cost millions of dollars.

Now, with Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) services from NCA, it is easier than ever for companies of all industries, size categories, and geographies to benefit from true security expertise. NCA aims to fill an unmet market need expressed by CxOs from coast to coast.

Why Are So Many Enterprises Going Without Crucial Security Knowledge?

The CISO role is a relatively new development. Up until recently, most enterprises have relied on a Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) working together to provide all necessary services, including security.

Today, the security landscape has become so complex that focused expertise on security matters is indispensable. Without it, security strategy will be guided by the most visible trends instead of true best practices in the field. Yet, many org charts simply do not include the CISO.

This has left enterprises with a serious challenge. Recruiting a CISO is a long-term project that adds expense and complexity to the business. Likewise, it can mean a significant short-term technology investment not all businesses are fully prepared for.

With vCISO services, the security experts at NCA will extend the brand’s world-class virtualized services into the security realm in new ways. From day one, vCISO clients will capture unique benefits unlike any other comparable security service on the market today.

With NCA vCISO, clients can expect:

  • Immediate value with complete integration into both team and technology;
  • Unprecedented awareness and flexibility around emerging security threats;
  • Significantly reduced technology investment without losing performance;
  • The versatility to meet security needs now and in the future with minimal HR.

With vCISO, Businesses Harden Against Cyber Attacks Practically Overnight

A lack of qualified candidates combined with the vast acceleration of online threats has left many businesses far behind in cybersecurity. Old-fashioned divisions between the remit of the CIO and CTO have hindered development of robust, scalable, effective strategies.

The NCA vCISO focuses on resolving these structural issues while maximizing the effectiveness of available resources. The initial emphasis on reducing human errors helps to build a foundation for more sophisticated and aggressive security techniques with clear bottom line impact.

Through vCISO services, enterprises can:

  • Increase productivity and ROI from their existing personnel and technology assets;
  • Reduce time spent on audit responses, compliance reports, and customer requests;
  • Enhance marketability among high-value clients demanding cutting-edge security;
  • Curb costs including TCO, non-compliance, business impact of security breaches.

One area where a vCISO approach excels is in clear measurement of risk and reporting of outcomes. A complete reporting structure allows for the development of milestones and key performance indicators so the enterprise can strive for continuous improvement.
