Full-Time Employee vs
Outsourced CISO

A full-time CISO is an excellent investment for most companies, but there are some considerations as to whether an organization should hire internally or use an external, outsourced provider. 

Effective Chief Information Security Officers are difficult to find and hard to retain. They are also expensive. Many companies make the mistake of thinking that one CISO can run an entire security program. Unfortunately, it takes a whole security team to accomplish this. 

This is why CDG’s vCISO exists: to aid organizations that need a security leader, along with a built-in security team who can help with the operational aspects of a security program.

Case Studies

“The Virtual CISO model brings us more benefit as a cloud native company vs. hiring a full time CISO as we know we have the CDG team behind us not just one individual. It is apparent that CDG really wants to succeed, not just collect a paycheck.”
