Don't lose your US DoD contracts!

A CMMC Virtual CISO can help.
Let's Meet

Did you know...



You were supposed to comply with NIST 800-171 in 2017, and are technically in breach of contract if you aren't. 

Soon DoD RFP’s will state “you must be CMMC level X.” This is a gamechanger. If you aren't compliant by award time, you will lose the business. It's that simple.


All of our CMMC clients work with I.T. firms, many of whom are excellent.

Yet when we get involved, we still find that they're missing 50-75% of what they need to do for CMMC to keep your government contracts.


CMMC requirements should be finalized in 2023 or early 2024. If you're waiting for the final rules, you're waiting too long.

It takes, on average, 6-18 months to become compliant and the auditors are looking for processes to be in place at least 6 months before the audit.

We'll help you prioritize what to do first, what to do later, and how to save money.

We provide our clients with unlimited support.

CMMC Virtual CISO frequently asked questions

What is a Virtual CISO?

In large organizations, the Chief Information Security Officer, or CISO, is the guru of all things information security. 

They make sure that your cybersecurity goals line up with your business strategy.  They present to board members about cybersecurity. They manage oversight, and figure out what's missing.

Large organizations have had CISOs for years. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are realizing that virtual CISOs can help them too. 

It's kind of like hiring a marketing agency or a fractional CFO. vCISO services hit the ground running. 

You get industry experience without the cost of very high-priced FTE.

What makes you different?

Here's what our vCISO clients say:

1) Our plans are "right-sized" for businesses with 10-300 employees.  Our competitors can charge tens of thousands of dollars per quarter.  

2) No long-term contracts.  Life is too short to work with unhappy clients.  Cancel anytime with 30 days notice.

3) No extra services.  Our prices already include tools that other vCISO firms make you buy separately.

4) We're not boring.  Information security people can be awfully dry.  Not us.  

What does the Virtual CISO service cost?

Eleventy-billion dollars.

Just kidding - our price varies based on the size and complexity of your organization and the urgency of the project. It's tough to quote a price without having a conversation first, even if it's just an email conversation.  Fill out the form above to start the conversation.  

I have fewer than 10 employees - can you help me?


We do have some clients smaller than 10 employees.  The ones who get value out of working with us already have a relationship with a good I.T. firm, and they want our help making sure that they're doing everything they should.  

Do you think we might be a
good match?

We help over 100 of the best financial services, healthcare, and manufacturing companies across the U.S. with their cybersecurity.
