Virtual Chief Information Security Officer – Milwaukee (WI)

Virtual CISO – Milwaukee (WI)

Organizations in Milwaukee and across Wisconsin are forced to operate in a business environment ripe with cybercriminals intent on stealing essential business data. Bad actors rely on ever-evolving techniques such as malware, ransomware, phishing attacks, and more to find weaknesses and exploit victims. In fact, recent studies have revealed that 1 in 10 small businesses suffer a cyberattack each year, with phishing being the most effective method. Any business that uses, stores, or transmits personally identifiable information (PII) such as Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, or login credentials is a target.

For this reason, companies in Milwaukee and across Wisconsin need to engineer a cybersecurity plan that offers maximum protection. Many rely on various appliances and software packages to achieve a baseline level of security but need more knowledge and experience to achieve maximum protection. The addition of a Chief Information Security Officer ensures that efforts are strategic and coordinated and offer a maximum level of protection. Unfortunately, many need more resources and budget to engage a full-time employee. For this reason, many turn to a Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) to provide executive-level guidance as needed.
