Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) with vCISO Services

Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) is an executive-level service that addresses the existing and future business requirements of the application of cybersecurity through the three core tenants of Leadership, Technical Guidance, and Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Management.  

"Achieving compliance with information security laws, regulations, and standards is imperative for an effective information security program."

To truly be successful, business owners and executives must understand how to recognize, address, and manage information security risks via their information security program.  

Why do I need vCISO?

A vCISO provides expert guidance and leadership on cybersecurity matters, including risk assessment, compliance, incident response, and strategy development, to ensure that the organization is protected against cyber threats and meets regulatory requirements.

For organizations who need, want, or are required to provide this level of oversight, yet can’t support the financial responsibility of a full-time CISO, outsourcing to a virtual CISO (vCISO) is the option that brings together both strategic and operational leadership, to your organization security posture.  Compliance is a large driver in today’s technical world, and rightly a large focus of the efforts of the vCISO role.

Leadership and Guidance



A successful vCISO engagement requires knowledge of your organization’s goals and present Cybersecurity capabilities. If your organization is looking for that direction but has not yet had an assessment of its current capabilities, Appalachia will begin by assessing your organization against a Cybersecurity framework that is relevant to your organization’s regulatory or compliance needs (NIST CSF, CMMC, PCI, HIPAA, SOC2, HITRUST, NERC).

Using the outcome of the assessment, the vCISO will engage in a number of cybersecurity services that address the three core tenants of Leadership, Technical Guidance, and Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Management.  


Solving the information security dilemma through people starts with obtaining the right talent to execute the program. Appalachia’s vCISO Services is the SOLUTION.
