SERVICES FOR COMPANIES
PRODUCT & MARKET ADVISORY : Many great technology companies were founded by technologists who were frustrated by the lack of solutions that met their business needs. In the development of any technology, it is critical that it is designed to meet a purpose, target and a market. While there are many ways for a cybersecurity company to gain these insights, perhaps one of the most fertile and real time is the ongoing insight of a technologist who is currently at the frontlines of the cybersecurity battle.
INTERNAL ADVISORY: All companies across all industirs can benefit at the executive level by using an objective and experienced technologist to act as a sounding board for the CEO or may want access to a range of expertise and have put in place advisory boards that offer ongoing guidance and insight to a variety of teams within the company.
By registering with Vicinage, a company can identify the profile and expertise that they believe will best suit its needs. It can specify time commitments and expected contributions and remuneration, if any.
Advisory Role: Looking for an advisor? By registering with Vicinage, a company can build an advisory team or simply engage with an individual advisor. Whether it is deep industry expertise that can be leveraged for developing vertically-focused solutions or broad expertise in certain types of technologies or pure white-boarding of yet unimagined solutions, Vicinage facilitates building advisory teams for innovative cybersecurity firms as well as companies across all industries.
Mentor: Do you lead an incubator focused on cybersecurity? Vicinage can place seasoned CISOs and other senior technologists as mentors for your companies and their leaders.
Board Member: You have a team of technologists on the executive team, but do they have a voice that is heard and speaks their language at the board level? Increasingly CISOs and other senior technology executives are being actively sought by companies both large and small, public and private and across all industries - including cybersecurity firms - for board seats. By registering with Vicinage, a cybersecurity company can expand its board to include objective, seasoned technologists.
Panelists, Speakers, Marketing Events: Because Vicinage has access to hundreds of CISOs and senior technologists in cybersecurity, it can be used as a resource for an array of marketing events that are looking for a one off collaboration on a specific event. This can often be used as a good springboard for a longer term relationship with the CISO or technologist.
We have created a community for our CISO members as well as an Innovation Center to showcase the products and services of cybersecurity technology companies.
Each month we give an in-depth exposure by highlighting one of our Innovation Center participants. Please contact us to see how you can contribute to this virtual Innovation Center by registering here.
