Technology to strategy: Today's CISO

Starting in the second half of 2018 small businesses without easy access to a cybersecurity expert will have a new way to find a cyber defender.

The Cybri model allows companies that are in the market for a cybersecurity professional to be matched up with one that has been vetted by Cybri. Targeted mainly at small and medium-sized business owners who cannot afford or do not know how to hire an in-house cyber expert, Cybri has a business owner describe their cybersecurity needs during the registration process.

“Businesses can request a full scope of cybersecurity projects, tasks, and initiatives based on industry regulations and compliance requirements including Virtual CISO (Chief Information Security Officer), penetration testing of systems and networks, employee training, and perimeter monitoring with incident response services,” Cybri said in a statement.

Cybri's proprietary algorithm then identifies the properly qualified expert for its stable and then within 24 hours sends out a list of names to the customer.

Each person on retainer with Cybri goes through an extensive vetting process, the company said, to include background checks, comprehensive interviews and an exam before being approved for inclusion.
