Aquia Solutions | Virtual CISO
Building a cyber security team is not always feasible. But before…much. But before dismissing the idea altogether consider the reasons why a CISO costs so much.
Is hiring a Cyber security resource too expensive?
Yes, hiring a cyber security resource is extremely expensive and not without good reason. The typical salary range of a cyber security expert (aka Certified Information Security Officer or CISO) varies between $190,000 to $255,000. When factoring in overhead, that dollar figure skyrockets to between $375,000 to $525,000.
