Virtual ISO™

Fractional Information Security Officer Services



Whether you’re in a regulated industry such as government, banking or healthcare or a small business that takes credit card payments, 21st century businesses have data protection requirements. You have a business to run but you don’t want to face the potential fines and damage to your reputation that could put you in the headlines. Assura’s Virtual ISO™ is designed for small to mid-sized organizations that need someone to take charge of data security and compliance but cannot justify the expense of a full-time Information Security Officer. The result is world-class security and compliance that delivers strategic value at a substantial savings without giving up a thing.
