Have A Question?

We Can Help You
When should companies hire a virtual CISO?

Companies typically consider hiring a vCISO when they lack in-house cybersecurity expertise, need to assess and reduce their cyber risk, are undergoing rapid digital transformation, or need to comply with evolving security and privacy requirements. Companies of all sizes can benefit from hiring a vCISO. Whether they need guidance or hands-on technical expertise to analyze their threat landscape and create security policies and practices, an enhanced information security program, compliance program, or cybersecurity plan that supports business objectives, or need to comply with evolving security and privacy requirements.

What is a Virtual CISO?

A vCISO, also known as a Virtual CISO or Virtual Chief Information Security Officer, is an experienced cybersecurity expert that supports organizations with security and compliance on a contractual basis. A vCISO provides strategic security strategy and guidance, risk assessment, compliance oversight, and expert-level cybersecurity expertise without the long-term commitment and costs of a full-time Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).

How is the vCISO program billed?

The program is billed at a monthly fixed rate with an annual contract. We will quote you on the monthly rates and any monthly variances depending on framework implementation and maintenance. Questions on this billing structure and exact estimates can be discussed with our team.

Can my vCISO address Security Questionnaires or participate in stakeholder meetings?

Yes! With our Manager and Executive vCISO options, a dedicated Rhymetec vCISO from our expert security team can help you execute security questionnaires, participate in stakeholder meetings, and liaise with your executive team.

Can a vCISO help us get compliant with SOC 2, ISO 27001 or other cybersecurity and data privacy frameworks?

Yes! Our security professionals are at your service with years of experience working with the most complex compliance regulations. We’ll make sure that your security and privacy program meets and exceeds industry requirements. We use cutting-edge technology to build and manage our clients’ cybersecurity infrastructures. Rhymetec remains vendor-agnostic, which allows us to have expertise on a broad range of cybersecurity tools rather than utilizing legacy systems.

What does a vCISO do?

A Rhymetec vCISO is your dedicated security resource that assists you in developing and maintaining a compliant and effective infosec program that is unique to your organization and security needs. Your vCISO will advise you on the necessary steps to improve your security posture, and also execute on their own advice within your environment so you can focus on other critical aspects of growing your business.


What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

Cartful CEO

“We went from zero to ISO 27001 and SOC 2, Type 2 in a much shorter time than anyone else was telling us. Rhymetec worked with me to get our organization the security certifications it needed and I will always be grateful for their professionalism and support because their help solved a very real business problem for us.”

Tenjin VP

“Rhymetec helped us to become ISO 27001 and SOC 2 Type 2 compliant in 1/3 time we were expecting. As an early stage B2B startup, this allowed us to go after enterprise customers months ahead of schedule and got us to become more competitive vs the established players.”
