vCyber Services vCISO support for commercial industry is based on our trademark Four Dimensional service delivery model.
People & Culture
This is the most frequently ignored aspect of a CISO’s work. Human factors are critical within cybersecurity strategy. Culture is one of the most dominant contributors to the posture of enterprise information protection. Ignoring people and culture is courting disaster.
vCyber Services vCISOs provide strategic leadership in the Human Dimension, including:
Executive and Staff Cyber Hiring Support
Security Operations Center (SOC) & Network Operations Center (NOC) Hiring Support
Operational Security (OpSec) Assessment
OpSec Testing / Staff Testing
OpSec Mentoring Programs

Corporate Cyber Initiatives
Corporate Cyber Branding
Process, Policy, and Compliance
The Operations Dimension includes all aspects of business processes, compliance processes, and corporate policies that relate to cybersecurity. Process and policy issues are very important to an enterprise’s overall cybersecurity posture but are the second most frequently overlooked focus area. Cyber compliance reporting must not become a "check the box" activity but should instead emerge naturally from a comprehensive information security strategy.

Are your Human Dimension focus areas – people and culture – aligned with your enterprise cybersecurity strategy?
Are your Operations Dimension focus areas – process, policy, and compliance – aligned with your enterprise cybersecurity strategy?
If you answered yes to BOTH, then you are well positioned to maximize the value of your Technology Dimension investments.
But if you answered no to EITHER, focusing only on the Technology Dimension will produce limited cybersecurity benefits.
