Virtual CISO Services

Elevate your organisation’s information security with our industry-leading expertise

Hire the best

Virtual Chief Information Security Officer

Our Virtual CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) Services are designed for organisations that require someone to take responsibility of the growth of their information security program but can’t find the best resource and/or don’t require someone full-time employee in the position.

With Gridware, you can leverage not only former CISO’s, but the full breadth of our expertise from our Sydney and Melbourne based cybersecurity consultants – from incident response consultants, penetration testers to cybersecurity auditors – all under the one cybersecurity retainer.

Hiring a CISO is expensive, time demanding and risky, a Virtual CISO is not. Gridware will be able to fulfil the role in your organisation at a fraction of the cost it would otherwise incur. 

A Clear Message

To give the business a clear message about where cyber security needs to be, you need a cybersecurity leader with the passion, expertise and drive to deliver results immediately. We’ve worked with countless businesses to bring this in-house solution to offer our customers just that.
