The security industry has over 1 million open positions that are not being filled due to critical skill shortages. The demand for the upper tier of security talent is even higher. The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) represents the top ranking security office in any organization. And with the security threat theater and complexity growing geometrically, every company, non-profit and government needs access to this level of talent.
Other than the largest of enterprise organizations, most companies do not have a full time CISO. Even companies with several billion dollars in revenue either cannot afford or cannot find this resource. But PCM is here to help. PCM Security now offers a virtual CISO (vCISO) service.
