OneNeck launches virtual CISO service

New vCISO service can deliver superior, multi-layered protection, improved visibility and reduced complexity while saving businesses from the arduous task of hiring and training a CISO.

April 11, 2019

IT security experts are scarce and data breaches are at an all-time high. It’s a costly combination to businesses that need security expertise now. A new virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) service from OneNeck® IT Solutions is helping businesses bypass the hassle of recruiting and hiring, and skipping right to leveraging security leadership expertise.

“Our vCISO service can help you promptly address your broad scope of security and compliance needs,” stated Katie McCullough, Chief Information Security Officer at OneNeck. “Our team of security experts stays up-to-date on emerging threats and is ready to hit the ground running to quickly assess your current state, clearly articulate your risks and recommend a path forward that optimizes your existing security toolset while working to protect your organization from outside attack.”

Did you know that within minutes, the majority (75 percent) of all cyber-attacks begin data exfiltration? Yet, it takes nearly 200 days, according to Cisco, before they are detected. Many businesses lack a security strategy and the depth of expertise to address these attacks. And once breached, it’s too late to recruit, hire and train a new CISO, then provide them time to create and oversee implementation of a plan.

When it comes to protecting customers, data and revenue, there’s no time to waste.

Take for example, Gila River Hotels & Casinos. Lacking the technical resources and expertise to dedicate to the development and implementation of a tailored security strategy that complies with their regulatory requirements they turned to OneNeck, their long-standing IT partner of over 20 years, and became an early customer for the vCISO offering.

“We needed a resource with the breadth and depth of experience to help Gila River evolve our overall security posture, adopt more effective security policies, and provide ongoing training to my IT Teams,” said Chris Bolton, Chief Information Officer at Gila River Hotels & Casinos. “However, bringing on a full-time Chief Information Security Officer would require additional budget and time spent onboarding a new employee, ultimately prolonging the completion dates of many of our security initiatives. With OneNeck’s new virtual CISO offering, we were able to address our security needs immediately, without the constraints and prohibitive costs associated with a traditional CISO hire.”
