Address your immediate and long-term cybersecurity needs.

Baker Tilly’s Virtual CISO service offers access to world-class security advice and leadership coupled with a supporting team of cybersecurity specialists, without the cost or commitment of hiring in-house talent.

    Address your immediate and long-term cybersecurity needs

    Over the past few years, the cyber landscape has changed dramatically – and it continues to change. Many organizations are coming to realize that protecting their information, assets and business in this changing landscape requires risk-based, executive level consideration, management and ownership that goes beyond the IT department.

    The challenge is finding cybersecurity talent. CSO Online highlighted a survey of IT professionals’ challenges and strategies noting that, “cybersecurity skills topped the list — 53 percent of survey respondents reported a problematic shortage of cybersecurity skills at their organization.”

    Baker Tilly specifically designed the Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) model for organizations who need a comprehensive cybersecurity program but do not have the resources for an in-house, dedicated security team or chief information security officer. With Virtual CISO, organizations can leverage expert security leadership and a supporting team of subject matter specialists to solve unique cybersecurity challenges and help move forward with a comprehensive, cost-effective security program.

    Count on Baker Tilly to help you safeguard your critical information, verify security effectiveness and optimize your organization’s cybersecurity management program investment.
