Our vCISO Advisory Services are meticulously tailored to your specific circumstances and information security requirements.

1. Strategy Definition

JPCYS’s vCISO collaborates with executives spanning business functions and IT. They help identify potential business threats, establish a baseline for your existing security program, and formulate a security strategy aligned with your business objectives and technology strategies.

2. Our phased approach

Our phased approach ensures the development of an effective and efficient strategy, leveraging NIST 800-53 standards and providing alignment with various cyber regulations (such as PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, FINRA, NYDFS).


JPCYS’s vCISO conducts a comprehensive evaluation from a security governance standpoint, examining your organization’s culture, processes, and technologies. This assessment yields prioritized actions aimed at effectively managing your information security strategy and program. The assessment encompasses:

  • Interviews with stakeholders from technical, business, and executive teams, accompanied by the gathering of essential documentation.
  • Thorough reviews across various domains, including information asset management, acceptable use policies, data classification, threat and vulnerability management, and third-party oversight.


Based on the findings from the assessment, JPCYS’s vCISO can offer a range of ongoing support options, including:

  • Development of policies and procedures to address gaps in documentation.
  • Formulation of a remediation plan featuring actionable and prioritized recommendations.
  • Implementation of the remediation plan.
  • Provision of continual strategic guidance, designed to be less resource-intensive but focused on assisting the organization in pursuing its long-term objectives.


Maintaining a robust security program necessitates a strong focus on security awareness. Your vCISO can provide recommendations and assistance in implementing training programs tailored to different user groups within your organization. This training spans a spectrum of topics, from highly technical aspects like secure coding practices to general education on data handling and combating threats like business email compromise. Additionally, the vCISO can oversee controlled phishing campaigns conducted by Kroll to assess and enhance employee security awareness.
