vCISO (Virtual CISO) Principal

Fractional CISO

This is a Full-time position in Newton, MA posted November 22, 2021.

As a vCISO Principal, you will play a pivotal role securing our clients’ infrastructure, data and software.

Beyond helping just our clients, you will also help society as a whole by contributing to our fast moving, passionate efforts in smartly improving and promoting cybersecurity best practices.

Fractional CISO is not a typical cybersecurity consulting firm.

Instead of providing just technical service, we focus on delivering the best possible cybersecurity leadership to our clients.

Our typical clients are medium-sized tech firms with significant cybersecurity needs, but they’re not quite large enough yet to hire a full-time senior security leader (CISO/CSO).

We fill that gap with our “fractional” CISO consulting services and help guide our clients on their cybersecurity improvement programs.

In this position, you will work as a team with our Cybersecurity Analysts to manage their deliverables while you provide cybersecurity leadership and program management directly to our clients.

You will work with a wide range of companies across many industries to develop and deliver the components of a good cybersecurity management program.

Our headquarters is in Newton, MA outside of Boston.

We are planning on opening an office in the Toronto, ON area within the next few months.

Those that live in the Boston or Toronto area should plan on coming into the office three days a week.

This position is located in any US or Canadian city in the Eastern or Central time zone.

For those not living in the Boston or Toronto area, you will be expected to come to the office 18 weeks of the year.

(Tuesday – Thursday)

6 plus years of cybersecurity experience

Your background:

You currently are a CISO, vCISO, or aspiring vCISO.

You have worked for a company running a cybersecurity program with an eye on becoming a cybersecurity business leader.

You are confident in your cybersecurity skillset but are less certain about the business development part.

Alternatively, you’ve gone out on your own as a vCISO consultant already but only have a handful of clients.

You would prefer to spend your time servicing clients as opposed to running a business.

We are committed to putting the right vCISO candidate onto the growth path of a very successful career in cybersecurity leadership.

What we ask in return is that the candidate bring a passion for cybersecurity, a strong work ethic, and demonstrated excellence in their prior positions.

We value diversity and believe that qualified candidates are just as likely to come from a non-traditional work or educational backgrounds.

Note: Please include a short cover letter with your application explaining your interest in the position and cybersecurity.

Applications without a cover letter may not be processed.

We are open to sponsoring a H1-B visa for the right candidate.
