Embedded and Virtual Security Teams

Achieving a strong cyber security posture takes a wide range of skills, effective leadership and strong alignment with business strategy.

In light of the changing internal and external threat landscape, strong governance is critical to success. However, many organisations struggle to fund, find, hire and retain the right cyber security expertise. At S-RM, we have a team of cyber security experts who provide experience into ongoing evaluation and maintenance of these security controls to ensure your people, assets, knowledge and reputation are protected.

The Issue

The scarcity of good information security resource combined with the high price and retention cost, leads to organisations lacking an in-house security team or operating without a significant skill set.

In particular, many organisations struggle to hire cyber experts that have board-level experience. The resultant gap in skills, resource and experience leads to ever increasing risk to the business and ineffective spending.

The Solution

Our Virtual Security Team (VST) service provides organisations with cyber security expertise; maintaining information security responsibilities and managing risks. We provide a Chief Information Security Officer, backed by a wide range of cyber security specialists, at a fraction of the cost of hiring in-house.

Acting as an extension to your organisation, our VST service is aimed at providing an on-going security presence, ensuring risks and incidents are reduced before they cause unacceptable business losses. Our team supports your business, trains your staff, and improves your company’s security controls. All of our Virtual Security Team leaders have held senior cyber security roles and have at least 10 years’ experience in the industry. These experts will manage your internal cyber security capability and help direct your internal resources.
