Let’s make one thing clear from the start. The word “virtual” here does not mean that a vCISO is the equivalent of Siri. It means that the CISO works part-time.Some firms are not quite ready to make the leap. They may be loath to pay a fulltime salary and benefits. And they may only need someone once or twice a week. The vCISO can report to the office or (most likely under current conditions) work remotely.
