Fractional CISO

aNetworks provides fractional CISO services to businesses that need a fractional CISO for risk evaluation, assessments, mitigations, and more.

A Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is a crucial component of every competitive business. However, because CISOs require vast experience and a dynamic skill set, the cost of hiring a full-time CISO is very high. As a result, it’s not always in the budget.

However, cyber security attacks target small and medium-sized businesses more than any other entity. Therefore, they often need the same security measures and controls in place as large enterprises.

We solve this problem by allowing you to escape the high cost of hiring a full-time CISO by opting for a fractional CISO.

A fractional CISO provides you with an experienced C-level business leader that assesses and reduces your cyber security risk, and builds out as well as strengthens current security measures and controls.

Furthermore, they document their methodology and provide your organization with critical written policies that work as a roadmap for your team to follow and learn from.
