Securing your business data and ensuring the same level of security to customer’s sensitive information requires constant attention and proper guidance of an executive-level leadership popularly known as CISO (Chief Information Security Officer). A CISO is responsible for defining and enforcing organizations’ cybersecurity culture, policies, procedure, and security architecture. The challenge here is that not many organizations can afford a full-time executive-level CISO to oversee these functions, given the limited access to cybersecurity experts in the market today. Hence there is a need to bring such leadership insight through Virtual CISO to address the following challenges which many organizations face.

Key Cyber Security Challenges

  • Increasing threat landscape
  • Evolving regulatory compliance
  • Unaware employees and Insider Threats
  • Shortage of skills
  • Cyber Security budget
  • Average time to respond
  • Internet of Things – Everything is connected
  • Cloud adoption shadow IT

A vCISO (Virtual CISO) or on-demand CISO can bridge these gaps. A Virtual Chief Information Security Officer is an outsourced security advisor whose responsibilities varies depending upon your business needs. A virtual CISO can be a cost-effective approach to having the access your company needs to high-end cybersecurity professionals.

Virtual CISO (vCISO) key responsibilities are:

  • Provide leadership on risk, governance, Incident Response, Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
  • Provide Expert assessment on security threats, risks compliance
  • Provide consultation to build effective cybersecurity & resiliency program
  • Facilitate the integration of security into your business strategy, process & culture
  • Manage the development, roll-out, and ongoing maintenance of cybersecurity programs
  • Assist with integration and interpretation of information security program controls
  • Serve as an Industry expert (HIPAA, PCI-DSS, NIST, ISO 27001, various standards, and compliances)
  • Serve as security liaison to auditors, assessors, and examiners

We, as a digital transformation and infrastructure security company, introduces its Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) as a service. With our vCISO program, you will have access to a pool of seasoned cybersecurity practitioner who will fill the role of a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) in your organization and business. With the help of this program, your organization will be equipped with the leadership and skill of a CISO who will define the vision, strategy and cybersecurity program to ensure your organization’s information assets and technology protection.



Drive Business and cyber risk strategy alignment, innovate, and instigate transitional change to manage risk through valued investments.


Integrate with business to educate, advise and influence activities with cyber risk implications.


Protect business assets by understanding the threat landscape and managing the effectiveness of the cyber risk program.


Assess and implement security technologies and standards to build organizational capabilities.


Security can no longer be considered as an optional service, and when you embed security into the software development lifecycle (SDLC), you have applications that are safe and protected by design, not by accident or coincidence. A robust application security program will help enterprises build security into the application development lifecycle (SSDLC), develop security guidelines and standards, create awareness and security training, and execute effective application security assessments.

Happiest Minds enables organizations to develop meaningful security frameworks that arrest security flaws ahead in time, and generate insightful dashboards and metrics for all stakeholders—from executives to directors, program managers, and developers. The result is a development process that supports business goals and long-term initiatives while avoiding security oversights and pitfalls. At the same time, the framework provides the enterprise with comprehensive data to assist in complying with regulatory standards.

Happiest Minds’ advance threat management services follow industry standards such as OWASP, WASC, SANS, NIST. Our clients are able to leverage a hybrid model that integrates automatic scanning capabilities with manual testing. We proudly deliver the only end-to-end application threat management solution available in the market through our Application Security Operations Centers (ASOCs). The ASOCs cover security at different levels and are delivered via affordable pricing model options.
