What is a Fractional
Chief Information Officer (CIO)?
A fractional CIO (Chief Information Officer) is a part-time or temporary executive who provides technology leadership and strategic guidance to a company. Overall, a fractional CIO can provide a cost-effective and flexible way for businesses to access high-level IT/Cybersecurity expertise and leadership and help protect their valuable data and assets from cyber threats. Here are some benefits of hiring a fractional CIO:
A fractional CIO can provide high-level IT/Cybersecurity leadership at a fraction of the cost of a full-time executive. This can help small and medium-sized businesses save money while still benefiting from strategic IT/Cybersecurity planning and implementation.
Fractional CIOs are typically highly experienced and skilled technology/cybersecurity executives. They can bring their expertise to bear on a company's IT/Cybersecurity strategy and help ensure that the business is leveraging the latest technologies and best practices.
A fractional CIO can work with a company on a part-time or as-needed basis. This means that businesses can access high-level IT expertise without committing to a full-time executive.
An external fractional CIO can provide a fresh perspective and unbiased opinion on a company's IT/Cybersecurity strategy. This can be particularly valuable in situations where internal staff may be too close to the technology to see potential issues or opportunities.
A fractional CIO can help a company stay focused on its core business objectives by managing the IT/Cybersecurity strategy and implementation. This can free up internal staff to focus on their own areas of expertise and drive the company forward.
