SERVICES FOR CISOs
Advisory Role: By registering with Vicinage, a CISO can indicate where and how they think their expertise can be best leveraged within a cybersecurity technology firm. 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 placing a CISO in a role that is best suited to each CISO’s experience base and interests.
Mentor: Increasingly specialized incubators to support nascent cybersecurity technologies and services are being formed. This is a perfect platform to provide mentoring and support to this crtitical community of innovators focused on cybersecurity.
Board Member: Cyber risk is business risk. Increasingly CISOs and other senior technology executives are being actively sought by companies both large and small, public and private and across all industries for board seats. By registering with Vicinage, a CISO can have a highly confidential search conducted to find appropriate board positions.
Retained Search: For a nominal fee, Vicinage can also be retained by a CISO to find targeted opportunities.
We have created a CISO Community for our members which contains a Center of Excellence to showcase the thought leadership and viewpoints of our CISO members.
Thought leader? Do you have a viewpoint to share with the community? A paper? A question for the community? Please join our CISO Community by registering here.
The registration process is simple, fast and can be done online or facilitated in a call that can take less than 5 minutes. More importantly, all registration details are secure and confidential and it is the CISO who will decide whether or not to share the registration bio with prospective companies looking to fill an advisory role.
It allows CISOs to tailor not only what types of technologies or markets they want to advise on, but also how much time they want to commit to the collaboration. Involvement can range from a one on one trusted advisor role to a CEO on an as needed basis, to a more structured involvement in an advisory board or corporate Board seat.
There is no fee or obligation for a CISO to register. If there is a match of capabilities and requirements, the opportunity will be presented to the CISO before approaching the company. Compensation for the CISO from the company can range from pro bono with just expenses covered to option incentives to fee based. Through its alliance with its sister company, Legal-Ease, LLC, Vicinage can assist in structuring a mutually beneficial business and binding contractual relationship.
