Why have a Virtual Security Manager?


Flexible and cost-effective access to leading cybersecurity expertise

Developing and maintaining a robust cybersecurity programme can be challenging. Especially if you don’t have the right skills, time or budget to employ a full-time, in-house Security Manager.

Spark’s Virtual Security Manager (VSM) will give you access to the expert knowledge of an experienced operational security or SecOps expert. And all at a fraction of the cost.

A VSM can be embedded within your organisation and work with existing teams in meeting your security objectives. Each VSM can be tailored according to your requirements and budget, and is backed by New Zealand’s largest dedicated cybersecurity team. VSM can provide anything from best practice incident management planning and notification on emerging threats, to support on policy and technology implementations.


Security assistance on your terms

Real world strategies

Virtual Security Managers help improve your security maturity. Expert analysis of your risk and threat landscape is combined with real-world strategies to improve your security programme.

Tailored to your needs

Having a VSM allows your organisation to access to industry leading cybersecurity knowledge. And all in a flexible and cost-effective way using a consumption-based model.

Augment your teams

We can help your team deal with ad-hoc challenges that you may not have the current capability to deal with on your own, while having a focus on continuous improvement.
