Cyber security is one of the biggest threats to Small and Midsize (SMBs)businesses today. SMBs don’t have the same level of protection or manpower that larger corporations have and are therefore at a higher risk for cyber-attacks.

A virtual CISO is an extremely cost-effective solution for companies that need advice on IT strategy but do not have time or staff members to fulfill the role of a CISO. Virtual CIO solutions offer much more than just technical expertise; they provide a comprehensive business management approach to enable organizations to stay in control of technology spending and stay abreast of technological developments in their industry.

Small business owners, especially those in the technology sector, are aware of the potential threats that can affect their organization and its revenue streams.
