Virtual CISO Services

Every organization needs security leadership, but not everyone is ready for a full-time CISO. HALOCK can fill that gap by acting as your Virtual CISO (vCISO) — providing expert security advice and management that align with your business needs and budgetary constraints from afar.

HALOCK’s experienced senior team possesses leadership experience in security, technology and operations. We provide the management expertise you need, when you need it, without any investment in a full-time CISO. As a virtual member of your staff, we give you access to decades of security experience at a fraction of the cost of a full-time CISO. Activities may include 3rd party management (TPRM)/vendor risk management, assurance program development and facilitation, project/program management, mergers and acquisitions assistance, security organization design, and other similar services.

HALOCK, a trusted cyber security company headquartered in Schaumburg, IL, near Chicago, advises clients on reasonable information security strategies, risk assessments, third-party risk management (TPRM), penetration testing, security management,  architecture reviews, and HIPAA, Privacy, & PCI compliance throughout the US.
