A key benefit to cybersecurity technology firms looking to be in the forefront of innovation, is access to the real world insight of experienced CISOs. The threat of cybersecurity breaches is now routinely top-of-the-fold news - which has driven greater overall awareness of the threat. CISOs for years have fought these threats, sometimes with the right tools and technologies, sometime through ingenuity, never simply through luck.
In fact, companies across all industries are tapping into this rich resource of knowledge and insight by creating special trusted advisory roles and more structured advisory boards. Even corporate boards are being encouraged to include technologists in their ranks, to offer insight and guidance and, if necessary, translation of the disparate languages of business and technology.
Never has the role of the CISO been so critical, high profile…and sought after.
Vicinage has one sole purpose: to match the experienced CISOs to companies seeking advice and guidance. Whether it is an innovative security firm that, in collaboration with a CISO, can bring to market products and solutions with greater speed, relevance and focus or companies looking to form an Advisory Board or fill a Board seat with a technologist, Vicinage is very focused on the CISO community.
Whether it is a CISO acting as a solo consigliore to the CEO to collaborate and act as a sounding board on developing a business vision, or as part of an organized advisory board that can work with key teams within the company such as product development, marketing and sales, there is a burgeoning need on both sides of the aisle for this handshake to occur.
