Virtual CISO (vCISO) Advisory Services:

The quantum of cyber-attacks has grown substantially over the past few years. With the business ecosystem becoming more digitized with each passing day, the strength, sophistication, and volume of these attacks will only increase further. As a result, every organization today needs a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) – a security leader with specialized technical knowledge, skillset, and corporate governance experience to manage enterprise security – whether it can afford to or not.

Most businesses cannot. The average annual salary of a CISO in 2016 stood at $206,000.

This is where AHAD’s Virtual CISO (vCISO) Advisory Services step into the picture. Its team of experts includes seasoned former CISOs from a variety of industries who can take over the reins of your existing security team or set up the security infrastructure at your organisation from scratch. Our vCISOs support your enterprise operations and reduce business risk while building a strong and agile cybersecurity framework. They help you prevent, detect, and mitigate threats and attacks while enhancing the security IQ and defence capabilities across your entire organisation. The aim is to empower C-suite executives and internal tech teams to safeguard their network, data, digital assets, and users from threats in cyberspace.
