Does your organization need more than just remediation? Could you use strategic level security guidance with the credentials to back it up over the course of a year? CDW’s vCISO service helps you improve the maturity and scope of your existing security practices by providing a technology-neutral security consultant. Using a three-step process, the security consultant can advise you on your organization’s security strategy and planning initiatives.

Security Maturity Assessment

Should you focus on written security polices, plans and procedures, or on the technical elements of your organizational security?  CDW security consulting services can help guide you by combining a high-level security framework review and technical security assessment of your environments to provide you with an integrated review of your security posture, as well as recommendations for remediation.

Security Architecture Workshop

Whether you are developing a network segmentation strategy or looking to roll out a security framework enterprise-wide, CDW can evaluate your business goals and your technology landscape to develop a strategy that is right for your organization.

Security Remediation Workshop

Leveraging the same team as our vCISO practice, CDW can help you determine the best approach to small or medium-term security projects, or provide an objective second set of eyes on an existing security effort in a flexible approach. 

Incident Response

Whether you need emergency assistance or proactive help to ensure you have a solid incident response plan, CDW can help.  We can respond to a breach and identify the scope of an incident with triage, implement incident handling and investigation performed by CDW engineers, and system forensics completed by CDW’s partners. CDW consultants can also provide Incident Response Preparedness Services, which include IR Program and Playbook Development, IR Readiness Assessment and IR Tabletop Exercises.

Compromise Assessment

CDW incident response engineers can leverage many of the same tools and tactics to conduct active threat hunting and develop indicators of compromise based on the recognized MITRE ATT&CK framework.


Security Operations Center Advisory

Many organizations feel like their cybersecurity operations aren’t as effective as they should be. The truth is that most Security Operations Centers (SOCs) face significant challenges that inhibit their ability to support their organizations. Talent shortages, alert overload, lack of investment, and poorly managed expectations plague them. CDW can help you overcome these challenges and supercharge your SOC by:

  • Assessing and benchmarking your SOC against industry peers and standards
  • Penetration testing every element of your defenses – from your people to processes to technology
  • Developing your overall SOC strategy, including discussions with key stakeholders, strategy workshops, SOC service assessments, strategy rollouts, and engagement planning.
  • Provide the expert skills training and testing exercises your team needs to advance your SOC capabilities
  • Managing and supporting the build and deployment of SOC technology, delivery methods, processes, and facilities
  • Identifying opportunities for automation
