Fractional CISO Services

Tangible Security recognizes that many organizations maintain an effective and efficient information technology team to manage firewalls and other security components while also providing IT direction and support to the company. However, the dynamic nature of the IT/cybersecurity field can present a challenge when understanding the long-term strategic security needs of the organization.

Employing an executive-level IT/security professional can be very cost prohibitive. Many organizations, especially small and medium-size businesses, do not need a full-time Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or a full-time Chief Information Officer (CIO). All they need is a trusted advisor to provide thought leadership on creating an effective information technology/security program and leverage current resources to effectively manage the corporation’s information technology/security needs.

Tangible Security’s Fractional CISO/CIO service provides your organization with expert resources to help manage and steer your information technology and security program. We fill the role of a Chief Information Security Officer/Chief Information Officer on an as-needed basis to develop, manage and support your IT and security programs. Tangible Security’s highly experienced personnel are made available to lead IT and security efforts within your organization, resulting in a highly customized, tailored approach and providing maximum benefit.

Leveraging the expertise of a Fractional CISO and CIO only when needed can eliminate the worry and confusion over creating a secure and effective IT environment. We will manage complex regulatory compliance issues while aligning business needs with budgetary constraints while leaving you free to run your business operations. Further, with access to a broad range of subject matter experts, the right support can be delivered at the right time – when you need it.

Taking advantage of Tangible Security’s Fractional CISO/CIO service provides your organization with immediate access to a professional team of highly experienced IT and cybersecurity leaders in areas of IT operations, data management, infrastructure, data security, compliance, and risk management at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time Chief Information Security Officer or Chief Information Officer.
