How vCISOs Optimize Cyberdefense
Top-level cybersecurity management requires years of experience dealing with the risks and threats specific to an industry. Outsourcing the vCISO role ensures all those needs—and any unanticipated ones—are accounted for. Join RSI Security for a glimpse into how our vCISO solution has optimized two cybersecurity programs in the field of Higher Education.

Our upcoming Webinar, “Why You Should Outsource Your vCISO Role…and How,” will take place on August 25, 2022, at 11:00 AM PST (2:00 PM EST), with a runtime of 50 minutes. The speakers will be RSI Security’s Sr. Technical Project Manager, David Samara, and guests Michael Zimmerman (CIO, Macomb Community College) and Cheryl Shelton (CTO, Mott Community College).

We will discuss:

- What responsibilities CISOs typically have and why they’re so crucial to account for
- Why organizations are increasingly struggling to find and retain full-time CISOs
- How outsourcing to a virtual CISO (vCISO) optimizes cyberdefense ROI

Afterwards, we’ll open the floor to a 15-minute discussion and audience Q&A, co-led by our two guest speakers. All attendees will be eligible for 1 CPE credit.

Can't make it? Register anyways, we'll send you a recording after!

Aug 25, 2022 11:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
