Chris Hart and Mike Pokas talk to TechVibe Radio host Jonathan Kersting about the growing need for outsourced CISO support and CyLumena’s Virtual CISO service. For most mid-sized or small organizations, a full-time CISO is not necessary. CyLumena provides outsourced cybersecurity leadership that’s flexible and can be accessed as an ongoing resource, as an interim CISO, or to supplement and fill gaps for high-value security projects.

The advantages of a vCISO include deep industry contacts, extensive cybersecurity and leadership experience, no personal agenda and a vendor-neutral approach. Companies gain access to scalable cybersecurity resources, as needed, alongside accumulated experience across CISO professionals.
