Interim, Fractional, or Virtual CISO

Strategist, Advisor, Technology Integrator, and Threat Preventer rolled into one

Columbia Advisory Group’s vCISO (Virtual CISO) service is designed to make experienced cybersecurity leaders available to organizations to help them assess their security posture, develop comprehensive security plans, and remediate gaps in security on an “as-needed” basis.

Columbia Advisory Group’s vCISO practice brings decades of cybersecurity leadership and experience that aligns information security programs with business objectives to improve public and private organizations’ security posture. Leveraging fractional or virtual CISO leadership, organizations can accelerate compliance and readiness while leveraging the rich experience our team of Chief Information Security Officers brings from implementing information security programs for many clients across industries in diverse regulated markets.

Columbia Advisory Group’s vCISO service helps organizations achieve cybersecurity excellence by sharing sought-after, experienced talent in an industry with a severe talent shortage.

Columbia Advisory Group CISOaaS

Finding an experienced, well-qualified CISO in today’s job market is expensive and time-consuming.  While going through an exhaustive talent search in a severely underserved industry, your organization’s security posture suffers and puts your organization at risk.
Our CISOaaS eliminates those risk.

Our team of expert professionals has highly-qualified and experienced CISOs offering on-demand CISO services. They are experienced in working in different industries and have exposure to managing various cybersecurity-related situations. Hence, your business is in good hands.


CISOaaS can help an organization build up its customized security framework to address the risks originating from its unique IT and business environment. It starts with analyzing your current cybersecurity posture, identifying the gaps, and creating a security profile followed by a strategy and a roadmap to ensure a risk-free environment. 

Having experienced people working behind the scenes ensures high compliance levels with an organization’s policies and standards, industry best practices, and regulations. It also helps provide excellent governance and enables your business to function seamlessly by aligning your cybersecurity goals with your business objectives.

A CISOaaS is different from having a regular CISO leading and managing cybersecurity for an enterprise. The CISOaaS ensures adequate end-to-end security without any compromise or vendor bias. 


Hiring a regular CISO for the enterprise increases the operational cost because of salary, increments, medical insurance, leave pay, and other perquisites. On the other hand, CISOaaS involves paying a single fee, thereby reducing overheads substantially and ensuring an ‘on-demand’ availability.  


Our CISOaaS offering has a proactive approach to identifying vulnerabilities in time before they erupt into something substantial. Our CISOaaS offers offensive and defensive security capabilities by implementing deterrent, detective, protective, preventive, and compensating controls.


Our vCISO services are tailored to every organization’s specific needs and duration.  We can help you prepare, protect and strengthen your defenses while simultaneously ensuring your governance and compliance meets your specific industry’s needs.
